PADI Discover Scuba Diving Program in the Riviera Maya

    What to Expect
    There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little time getting used to it, but after a few minutes, you will realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program is not getting participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over.

    You can head to any of the dive centers in the Riviera Maya and meet your instructor to start the program. First, you will start off with a pool session and then have a guided open water boat dive to one of the amazing local reefs. Discover this sport and the magnificent underwater world.

    Carles and the team are fantastic at what they do. They ensured that we were all safe in the water, gave adequate training and took us out to sea. They were helpful throughout and made everyone in the group feel very comfortable as we had both novices and more experienced
