The PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience with PAN AQUA DIVING

Want to try scuba, but not sure if you want to commit to getting certified? At Pan Aqua, we offer this experience in the safety and comfort of one of the nicest pools in Manhattan at our West 43rd Street location. Though it is NOT a certification course, it is a great way of determining if scuba is for you!

What's involved

You will meet with one of Pan Aqua's experiended staff, who will go over basic safety procedures and instroduce you to the equipment you will be using. After the introduction, you will procede to the Manhattan Plaza pool. This is where you get your first chance to make like a fish and breathe underwater! Your PADI professional will teach you a handful of the essential skills for diving and allow you to swim around in the pool under their direct supervision. Once you’ve finished the experience, the next step is to enroll in the next Open Water Diver course and become certified! 

No prior scuba experience is necessary! You just have to be at least 10 years of age and be in reasonably good health to participate.


Course is $199. If you decide to continue with the certification course, we will apply $100 to your Open Water Diver course fee.
