Try Scuba Diving in Cozumel

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out and you are willing to try to scuba dive for the first time 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. While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving Cozumel experience you'll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world. The program includes orientation, pool or confined water practice and 1 or 2 optional open water dives. It allows you to try diving in a safe and controlled environment under the supervision of a PADI dive professional, and it can be taken in a swimming pool or in open water. The Discover Scuba Diving experience will place you very near to your PADI Open Water Diver certification


1How can I receive my gratis dorm night?
This is a guest promotion, so, first of all, you need to become our guest with a confirmed and fully paid non-refundable reservation using the link on the top of this page. After this, please follow the instructions in the confirmation e-mail and use the promo code provided to receive your free night. You can book any type of accommodation, we will deduct the price of a basic dorm from your diving balance. With this course, you can receive 3 nights in a basic dorm as a gift, or the value of this will be deducted if you stay in a higher category dorm or in a private room.
2When will you start the next course? Do you teach the course during my stay?
We conduct the Discover Scuba Diving try dives every day, usually in the afternoons. All you need to do is to make a reservation at least half day in advance.
3Can I try first than continue to the Open Water Certification?
Absolutely! If you plan to go on and complete your dive certification in 2 additional days, we conduct our try dives as the first dive day of the Open Water Course, therefore the full amount what you paid for this program will be deducted from the price of the full certification course.
Did you LOVE it? The FULL fee of this program can be applied to our basic PADI Open Water Diver certification course if, like most, you find that one dive is not enough.

At the beginning of the program you will go through some basic knowledge development and then it's into the water to perform a few basic skills with the dive equipment. Having completed the Discover Scuba Cozumel with us, you can schedule further fun dive trips with our experienced Dive Leaders. We hold small size classes to ensure your first diving experience is a great one to remember. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over.

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:

  • Take the plunge with PADI
  • 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

If you’ve tried diving through a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the PADI Scuba Diver or the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.


You need to bring swimwear and towel for the session and a smile. 2tank Dive Resort provides all diving equipment for this course.

Prerequisites and limitations for Discover Scuba Diving

To enroll in the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program, you must be 10 years or older in general good health and must be able to swim 200m (at your own pace). As the PADI DSD Program is not a real course, you are not having any diver level certification. Once you complete a Discover Scuba Diving program, you’ll want to check out our Scuba Diver and Open Water Diver certification courses.
