Discover Scuba Diving on Kuredu

14 Jun 2016

With so much to do at Kuredu, it is understandable that not everyone wants to enroll in the full PADI Open Water Diver Course. For all those who want to experience the thrill of breathing underwater and get a glimpse of what lies beneath the water surface around the resort, the best option is the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program. The Discover Scuba Diving program is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

During the DSD (as we commonly refer to the program), your instructor will explain to you the basics of scuba equipment, you will learn the key skills to make you feel comfortable and safe and most importantly, have loads of fun.

The first dive takes place in the shallow water of Kuredu’s lagoon, so that you can get used to the gear and the pleasant sensation of being almost weightless. This is couple with learning a few handy skills. The second dive is where the real experience begins! Your instructor will take you for a dive on the house reef, where you will see the real deal: coral, fish, a shipwreck, and if you’re especially lucky – turtles.

With so many beautiful dive sites in the area, which are accessible by boat, most of the DSD students decide to do the third dive as well. Given the ideal conditions, such as warm water, small groups (max. 4 students per instructor) and so much to see on reefs around the island, most guests get hooked on diving and use the particular Discover Scuba Diving sections as a credit towards the full Open Water certification.
