Additional Information about the Discovery Beginner Scuba Diving PADI Certified Course

Some divers say there is nothing like the freedom of movement and weightlessness experienced underwater. Being able to hear nothing but the sound of your own breathing while you observe the mesmerizing sea life around you has been said to change lives forever. This wondrous experience is heightened in the clear waters of the Indian Ocean.

Unlike the reefs in Seychelles and the Maldives, the coral reefs in Mauritius have not been bleached or affected by the warming of the ocean. The crystal-clear water, the abundance of fish life and colourful reefs provide magnificent backdrops for underwater filming and photography.

Mauritius, almost completely encircled by a barrier coral reef, is home to many sponges, sea anemones and a variety of colourful fish. These wonderful sea creatures and vegetation provide an incredible scenery for all divers.

The open sea dive will take place under the direct careful supervision of a PADI Professional, so you can freely enjoy your diving experience, without any worries.

About the Discovering Scuba Diving PADI Certified Course

The Professional Association of Diving Instructor (PADI) course is designed to introduce you to the amazing world of scuba diving and help you become a confident diver.

You will first get a detailed briefing from a qualified scuba instructor prior to the pool session that includes an overview of the scuba equipment, the pool session and the sea dive.
