Blackbeard Discover Scuba Diver Discover Scuba Description: There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to-after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!

Blackbeard Course Outline: The Naui Discover Scuba Diving program begins with a short theory session with your instructor covering some basic tenets of scuba diving. Then it's off to the swimming pool where you will be introduced to scuba equipment and master some basic scuba skills. Nothing will prepare you for the joyous feeling of being weightless and those first breaths underwater.
