Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba is for you. Aquatic Adventures offers this program in an indoor, heated, Fairfax County Pool. While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

What will you learn?

You learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. Get ready to:

  • Go over the scuba equipment you use to dive and how easy it is to move around underwater with your gear.
  • Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater.
  • Learn key skills that you’ll use during every scuba dive.
  • Have fun swimming around and exploring.
  • Hear about becoming a certified diver through the PADI Open Water Diver course.

When you participate in a Discover Scuba program, you discover excitement and adventure, freedom, and serenity. Nothing compares to the “weightless” exhilaration of breathing underwater. Only a diver knows the feeling!

How long does it take?

The whole experience lasts a couple of hours. During that time, we will review some dive basics and then get you into scuba gear and underwater.
