Discover Scuba Diving (DSD)

Dip your toes into scuba diving without committing to a full course?
With the PADI® Discover Scuba Diving half-day experience, it’s entirely possible.
Together with a Scuba Point instructor, you’ll partake in a brief 30-minute theoretical session where you’ll learn the basic principles needed for a safe diving experience. You’ll be guided through the use of diving equipment and the essential underwater conduct.
After this, you’ll board a boat, and within 10 minutes, we’ll reach a secluded cove within the breathtaking La Maddalena Archipelago. Our diving adventure starts from a picturesque beach, sheltered from winds and waves.
You’ll embark on your first dive, descending to a maximum of 12 meters, exploring our submerged paradise for approximately 40 minutes.
Once the adventure concludes, a swift 10-minute return trip brings us back to Palau, where you’ll be awarded a PADI certification. This certificate can be used to gain credits towards future PADI® courses.

I had a great time with two fun dives during a morning trip. After fours years of no diving for me, Sabrina did a very helpful and relaxed refresher course at the beginning of my first dive. Davide led the second dive and showed some great spots.
