PADI Confined Water Dives

In parallel with your knowledge development you will begin your underwater experience in confined water (Pool).  You will learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank. 

The first pool session is normally scheduled at your in-store orientation. Once you have scheduled your first confined water session and finished Section One of the Knowledge Development, you are ready to take your first breathes underwater.  This is where the fun really starts.  For the confined water portion, all equipment will be provided by the shop...all you need is your bathing suit and a towel.

Confined water can usually be completed in two to three sessions.  However, this is a go at your own pace course and may take more time if needed. We aim to be extremely flexible with our training schedule and thus your next session is not automatically scheduled. 

When you schedule your confined water sessions, you will be assigned to one of our sites based on your personal requirements and preferences.  If you have any questions about any of the sites at all, please don’t hesitate to ask.  That’s what we are here for!
