Participants are given a short lecture and practice some essential diving skills in the swimming pool. Once the skills are mastered the participants head off to the Open Water for a supervised dive to no more than 12m. The pool session is local to Cebu City and the whole DSD experience takes place at a resort in Mactan.
Discover Scuba diving is available to anyone who is 10 years or older. There is a medical statement to sign before the experience to ensure that you are fit to dive.
After the course, the customer can choose to have a Certificate of Experience and decide if they would like to continue to the Open Water Diver course. The DSD is the first part of the Open Water Diver course so it can be credited towards the Open Water Diver course. At Dive Cebu we allow this credit. Many diveshops do not. So, if you do the DSD with Dive Cebu you get a discount when you decide to do the full Open Water Diver certification course.
