Have you always thought about trying scuba diving to see what all the fuss is about? Then a try dive might be the best option for you.

This is a quick introduction to the underwater world without any official qualifications. You are literally trying before you dive. A qualified instructor will come with you to make sure you get maximum enjoyment from your first scuba dive. A Try Dive can help you save time and money by finding out in advance if you like diving.

There are 2 programs that you can choose, check it out!

If 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 and 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!

Please note that when diving in Con Dao, we highly recommend 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.

All those wishing to partake in Try Dives or Discover Scuba Diving must complete the standard PADI medical form before diving. Click the button below to view the 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.
