Your PADI Instructor will introduce you to some basic theory and skills before taking you for your first sea dive… The PADI Discover Scuba Diving course is the best introduction to diving and Coral Divers in Sodwana Bay is the perfect place to try it!

Experience what it is to scuba dive, in just one day. Your instructor provides you with a basic knowledge and skill level to experience scuba diving safely and enjoyably. A maximum depth of 12m is reached on the program, but you can always continue your diver training and complete the PADI Scuba Diver Course or full PADI Open Water Diver course to get certified, if you love it! Remember, you are also able to do extra supervised dives with a PADI Professional once the dive is complete. Not only that, but your experience gained can be credited towards the PADI entry level courses mentioned above.

Please Note:

The course price does not include any of the park fees, or your MPA dive permit (in case you have one already)…

There are three parts to the program: a theory brief, basic training in a swimming pool  and one ocean dive, each playing an important role in making this a safe and enjoyable experience.

A brief introduction to the basics starts you off. After this, a short presentation and quick review will assess that you have covered all you need to know.

In the pool is where the fun really begins! You will complete a pool session, whilst learning and practising dive procedures and skills. You will do this under the direct supervision of your instructor in our training pool, at a depth of 3m max. 

You will then go through to our Beach Shuttle with your instructor accompanying you to the dive boat launch area. Here you will join your instructor on an exciting ‘open water’ dive on 2 Mile Reef.

To qualify for the PADI Discover Scuba Diving course, you must be 10 years old or more. Under 18’s need a parent or guardian to complete and sign some paperwork.

If you answer “yes” to any of the questions on the PADI Medical Questionnaire, you will require a ‘Fit for diving’ statement signed by a doctor. As well as being signed, it must be dated no older than 12 months. You may not sign your own medical if you are a doctor.


This experience includes a theory session and pool training, as well as your supervised sea dive and full gear hire for the day. Remember that for this course, accommodation and meals are not included, so be sure to book it if needed.
