PADI Discover Scuba Diving: 1 Cenote Dive from Tulum
There are 3 different parts of this experience that aim at making you a confident and safe diver. Please bear in mind that this is not a certification course, but will credit you towards it if you wish to continue:
1. DSD Briefing
Your instructor will explain the basic rules and techniques for breathing and equalizing underwater, the hand signals to communicate efficiently, and show you the scuba equipment and how to use it. You will learn how to easily clear water from your regulator and mask in case you need to during your dive.
You will learn more about the area which you would be exploring by diving and the importance of respecting the environment and protecting marine life. So you can responsibly fully enjoy the dive.
2. DSD Confined water exercises
Once the equipment is ready and your instructor has double-checked that everything works the way it should. You will learn how to enter the water, practice inflating your BCD (buoyancy control device) on the surface. And after that, when you feel ready, you will descend hand to hand with your instructor into shallow waters and practice these skills that your instructor will always demonstrate first:
how to equalize
regulator recovery and clearing
monitoring air supply
basic buoyancy control
3. DSD Open water tour
All right! After completing the required skills, you have now earned the reward – your first scuba dive. You will now swim around close to your instructor and explore the area, getting a taste of what it is like to be a certified scuba diver, discovering the lack of gravity and the amazing feeling of breathing underwater!
