POOL TRY DIVE Let's try a new adventure with Dive Academy

PADI Discover Scuba® Diving Experience in Ireland

Have you ever wondered what it's like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out but aren't quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. 

The Fun Part

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to – after all, human beings weren't designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Try Dive (Discover Scuba Diving) program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It's all fun! Plus, you can get credit! If your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, your experience may count toward PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead of the game when you decide to go for it.

What You Learn

You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you'll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not. You will:

  • Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it
  • Find out what it's like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
  • Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step

The Scuba Gear You Use

All the equipment you will need is typically included in a Try Dive (Discover Scuba Diving) experience. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask, snorkel and fins, a buoyancy compensating jacket that also carries your scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply. You might also wear a scuba wetsuit or a weight system depending on where you do your Try Dive (Discover Scuba Diving) program.

The Learning Materials You Need

Just your willingness and undivided attention.


To take Try Dive (Discover Scuba Diving), you must be at least 10 years old.

Your Next Adventure

Once you complete a Try Dive during Discover Scuba Diving program, you'll want to go and dive in our Aquarium Tank or the Atlantic Ocean. After completing full Discover Scuba (swimming pool + Ocean) you can sign up for Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification courses.
