Discover Scuba Diving

Scuba Dive Beginner Courses | Con Dao Island Vietnam Discover Scuba Ding | Try DivesIf you feel more confident about your first time diving, but don’t want to take the full PADI Open Water course, then PADI Discover Scuba Diving is for you. To begin with, one of our instructors will take you to the pool and teach you the basics about your equipment. Then  practice some skills and get you used to the water scuba gear. Then you will take two ocean dives, with your PADI instructor, to a maximum of 12 meters. For this the instructor does not need to have contact with you, you are free to dive unassisted. You will also earn a Discover Scuba Diving certification that is valid for one year and the program may count towards your PADI open water course, putting you one step ahead of the game if you do decide to go for it!

PADI Medical Form

If the answer is YES to ANY of the questions, please print out the form and see a doctor BEFORE travelling to Con Dao. You must obtain medical certification that it is safe for you to dive. We cannot do this on the island. If your answers are all NO’s, that’s fine – we can complete the medical form when you get here.


Also please note that when diving in Con Dao we require divers to be covered via insurance for diving, and emergency evacuation due to the remoteness of the island and limited medical facilities. If this is not already covered by your travel insurance policy, we recommend DAN (Divers Alert Network) for their cover.
