PADI Discover Scuba Diving
This is a trial course for those who do not have a diving license. You can try your hand at scuba diving in relatively shallow water. The trial dive is a half-day course. It is possible to do it in the morning only (finished by 12:00 noon) or in the afternoon if you wish. You can make a request at least one day in advance. Free pick up in Mactan Island (pick up to Cebu Island is also available.) Full rental equipment and underwater camera are included.
Learn more about this activity
The PADI Experience Diving Program (DSD) allows you to practice the basics of scuba diving in one dive, either in a pool or in shallow water. If you want to go see some fish, you can purchase an additional dive to see and photograph fish in shallow water at 2-3 meters.
The PADI Experience Diving Program (DSD) is not a license course and you will not be issued a C-card at the end of the course. Also, regular dives are performed at depths deeper than 5 meters. Most interesting dives are at depths of about 25 meters, so we encourage you to take the PADI Open Water Diver Course to become a full-fledged diver.

Additional information about this activity
Experience Diving is not a license course
The PADI Experience Diving Program is a diving program that allows you to “experience” diving and dive in very shallow water. Therefore, no license card will be issued upon completion of the trial dive. Please note that you cannot dive at the same level as a regular diver after the course.
