Beginners: Discover Scuba Diving

There are three stages to the course:

  • First of all, you will be given a briefing which explains the equipment, how it works and the effects of pressure underwater. You will be taught some scuba diving theory including safety rules and hand signals for underwater communication. There will also be various diving skills you need to learn prior to going in the water.
  • Next, you’ll complete your first dives in shallow water. This allows you to become familiar with the equipment and practise your new found diving skills.
  • Once you feel happy with these skills, you will be taken for a little exploration in a sheltered bay. This is the fun part. You won’t forget this amazing experience of breathing underwater! Discover this fantastic new world at a depth where you feel confident and comfortable. You will have an instructor with you, so your first experience in open water will be relaxed and fun, but importantly nice and safe. You might see a Loggerhead Turtle! They are the only sea turtle that nests around Kefalonia and the Mediterranean.
