Discover Scuba Pool Dive

Have you always wanted to try a scuba dive but you’re not quite sure?  Then discover the magic of scuba in the safe confines of our heated, four-metre deep swimming pool with a professional instructor by your side.

With the Discover Scuba Pool Dive, you will learn basic dive skills and experience what it’s like to breathe underwater. It’s safe, fun and no prior experience is necessary.

After some basic theory, it’s into the pool for some skills practice and the excitement of your first taste of scuba! The pool session will take approximately 45 minutes.

Once you’ve completed your Discover Scuba Pool Dive, you are not certified but will have the confidence to take the next step of participating in an introductory scuba dive in the waters of the spectacular Great Barrier Reef. Quicksilver Dive’s professional PADI instructors will help you maximise your dive experience so you’re relaxed and ready to take the plunge. You might even catch the scuba bug and join Quicksilver Dive’s Four Day Learn to Dive Course!
