What is a Discover Scuba Diving program?

Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) is an excellent way to get introduced to scuba diving. During this experience, you’ll learn to breathe for the first time underwater in a controlled, relaxed manner, all while under the direct supervision of your instructor. It’s a unique and fun experience that’s much easier than you might think.

Trying scuba diving without a diving license is the best option available. It’s a great way to explore the underwater world and observe the diverse marine life, including animals, plants, corals, turtles, and fascinating shapes and lights that nature has to offer.

What do I need to know before diving for the first time?

The idea of doing a try dive can be overwhelming, and you may have a ton of questions. We get many try-dive inquiries at SDDC every day, so don’t worry! We’re here to help you out with anything you need to feel confident about your dive. So, keep reading, and we’ll ensure you have all the info you need to make your try dive an unforgettable experience!

✔️ The first thing to ensure is that you feel up for it and in good health. It’s essential to check for any medical restrictions that might prevent you from diving, but as long as you’re willing, able, and healthy, you’re good to go!

  • Do not book your first dive if you are in poor health.
  • You must be well, without colds, flu, mucus, or feel sick to your stomach or ears.
  • Nor if you come from an injury or had surgery for something less than a year ago.

✔️ The second thing you need is to have rested well the night before:

  • Don’t book your dives after going out partying and consuming alcohol.
  • Sleep and rest well.
  • Have dinner and breakfast, but light.
  • Do not eat large, greasy, or indigestible meals.

✔️ If you’re prone to getting seasick during voyages or while out at sea, consider taking a motion sickness pill (after consulting with your doctor) to alleviate the symptoms. Don’t hesitate to ask your instructor; we always have them on hand in the first aid kit.

🤩 You just need to really want it and be ready to have one of the best days ever – guaranteed 🤩

How long does a discover scuba diving in Bali with Southern Dreams Diving Club last?

Our diving schedule typically runs from 8:00 AM to between 2:00 PM and 3:00 PM depending on our dive location.

We do 2 dives in the sea. Between dives, we relax on the beach or the boat while having tea or coffee and some snacks; finally, we all eat together while talking about the adventure we just experienced together that day.

It is an activity where we do not have to be in a hurry, but the most important thing is that you can enjoy it safely and at your own pace with an instructor always by your side.

👉 Here you can read in detail how we organize DSD at Southern Dreams Diving Club.

Where do we do the dives?

In Bali, the sea conditions can change from day to day. The good thing is that from SDDC, we dive in more than 50 different spots along the entire east coast of the island! Every day, we look at the sea conditions and choose the best spots where we have the ideal conditions so that you can enjoy your try dive to the fullest and safely.

The most popular diving spots for the try dive are the Liberty Wreck in Tulamben, Jemeluk Bay in Amed, and the Blue Lagoon area in Padangbai. All of them are unique and full of life.

🐢 🐙 You will see all kinds of corals and hundreds of reef fish, and if we are lucky, we can also see turtles, octopuses, squid, some wrasse, or barracuda 🐙 🐢

Environmental Recommendations

The sea conditions for you to safely enjoy your first dive must be perfect! We have apps, friends in each area where we can inquire daily about the sea conditions at that time. However, forecasts can change from one day to the next, and your safety is always our top priority. For this reason, dive plans may be modified at any time at the discretion of the dive instructor. What we can assure you is that we will always take you to a completely safe area to enjoy your first dive.

👀  Many divers ask us if we offer first dives on the island of Nusa Penida or the islands of Candidasa, as other dive centers do. The answer is NO. This is for your safety as those points are in open ocean and there are often strong swells and currents ranging from moderate to very strong 👀 

☀️ °🌊 The sea conditions for your first dive must be perfect. And we will recommend the best sites for you every day. You’ll be able to safely enjoy more challenging dives once you have the appropriate training. °🌊☀️

Try Dive for kids

Discover scuba diving for kids is quite an experience. Their natural instincts make them more receptive, and learning to dive is much easier.

In order to participate in this experience, the children must have some familiarity with the sea. They should enjoy spending time in the water and engaging in related activities such as swimming, diving, and splashing. However, they do not need to be expert swimmers.

Minimum age

According to diving standards, 8-year-old children can do a Try Dive, but their status as minors and their nature in the development phase must be taken into account.

Every child is unique and different, and their physical and mental development occur at their own pace. This can make it challenging to determine a specific age when they can safely start diving. When deciding whether a child is ready to start diving, their maturity level, reasoning skills, and physical limitations should be carefully considered.

Before signing your child up for diving, you should ask yourself these questions and talk to your kid:
  • Does the child really want to dive?
  • Can he swim?
  • Does he feel comfortable in the water?
  • Is he medically fit to dive?
  • Is he/she mature enough?
  • Can the child feel comfortable telling an unfamiliar adult (instructor) that he or she feels uncomfortable or doesn’t understand something?

✅ If you and your child can answer YES to all the questions, then the kid can enjoy the try dive. He will have an instructor just for him with whom he will learn to communicate, work on the buddy system and relax while discovering the underwater world.
