If you are a complete beginner and want to try Scuba Diving then the PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) could be the course for you. With the DSD you get to experience the thrill of being underwater in just one day, without taking a full course. It will also count towards your PADI Scuba Diver or PADI Open Water certificate if you decide to continue with your diving education. No previous experience is necessary and this will only take part of a day from your holiday in Dahab.

Your Nesima diving instructor will teach you the basic principles of scuba diving. They will then conduct a knowledge development session and briefing that will cover the following points:

  • Breathing rules and equalization techniques
  • Scuba diving equipment use and purpose
  • Hand signals
  • Regulator and mask clearing techniques
  • Respect for aquatic life
  • Importance of watching and staying close to the instructor
  • Limitations of the programme and the value of further training

Afterwards your instructor will take you to make a confined dive, not exceeding 4 metres, to practice your skills. Your second dive will be an open water dive, up to a maximum of 12 metres. This can be used as a credit towards either the PADI Scuba Diver Course or PADI Open Water Course.

This is a quick and easy introduction to try Scuba Diving and NOT a scuba certification course.

Please note that all student divers must complete the PADI Medical Statement prior to starting any course with Nesima Dive Centre. If a student has any of the medical conditions that are listed then signed clearance from a doctor experienced in diving medicine must be provided on check-in. This can also be arranged locally with the doctors at the hyperbaric chamber.
