Want to try scuba diving, but have never been certified? This is the activity for you! With our Discover Scuba Diving resort course, you can be scuba diving in only 90 minutes! Your expert PADI  instructor will teach you how to breathe underwater and the basic skills you will need in order to go scuba diving to a depth of 40 feet. There will be a PADI divemaster in the water with you the whole time.

You will spend about 90 minutes in the swimming pool with your instructor going over your skills and learning about how to scuba dive. Then it's time to do the real thing!  We'll go out to the ocean and you can do not one but TWO boat dives at either Los Arcos marine park or Mismaloya, two of Puerto Vallarta's best dive sites. Swim with tropical fish under the water, look for manta rays, sea turtles, and other amazing sea life.

If you like scuba diving (and we're sure you will), you can also credit this class toward your Open Water Certification - you're already halfway to being certified to scuba dive anywhere in the world. If you like, you can also book additional dives with us for the remainder of your vacation.

Cruise Passengers:  Yes! This tour makes a great shore excursion.

Runs:  Monday through Saturday at 8:00 AM.  If you are on a cruise ship, we will work with your schedule to ensure you get to do this dive.  Groups of 6 or more we can take out on Sunday upon request.

Duration: 5 hours Approximately

Requires: All participants will be required to fill out a PADI medical questionnaire prior to diving. If you will answer "Yes" to any of the questions, you will need a note from your doctor clearing you to dive in order to participate in this course. This is a PADI requirement, so all PADI certified dive shops require the same form.
