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, Gili Lankanfushi offers a Discover SCUBA Diving (DSD) program. We begin either in the pool or off the beach and if you’re comfortable then we can head out by boat for an amazing reef dive! Our team of instructors have been fortunate enough to take over 100 guests in the last couple of months alone for their very first breaths underwater. As an instructor, it has to be one of the most rewarding parts of the job as it’s not every day that one gets the opportunity to introduce someone to a whole new world! Some of our first time divers have even been lucky enough to spot turtles and Manta rays on their very first Discover SCUBA Diving experience – well worth a try!
While not a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it’s like to explore the underwater world. To sign up for a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least 10 years old, and no prior experience with SCUBA diving is necessary, but you do need to be in reasonable physical health and be comfortable in the water.
