Try Diving

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program is the way many of us try diving for the first time. It’s an amazing experience!
You or your kids can safely try scuba using a local dive shop in your home town, or under the supervision of Pete Bucknell in New York City or at your destination.

Having close supervision in a controlled environment means that you can enjoy the discovery process without stress, and decide whether you want to go further and get your certification.

In just a few hours, you’ll learn how to use SCUBA equipment in shallow water, and get a quick and easy introduction to exploring the underwater world.

If you or a loved one (as young as 10 years old) are curious about the idea of breathing underwater, then this is a fantastic way for to find out what it’s like, either in New York City, or in an exotic diving location such as Mexico.

Here's a video shot by Pete Bucknell of a couple doing a "Discover Scuba Diving" in Playa del Carmen, Mexico:
