PADI Discover Scuba Dive
Discover Scuba Diving in Cyprus - a very special experience
Are you fascinated by the underwater world? Ever wanted to know what it feels like to be weightless? Experience the feeling of breathing underwater? Or just swim with the fish? Then the PADI Discover Scuba Diving - trial dive with us in Agia Napa / Protaras is the perfect excursion for you.
After a theoretical introduction and some paperwork, we go straight to the sea. We don't bother you with a swim in a pool first, because the conditions at Green Bay allow us to take you directly into the sea and show you the underwater world immediately. In Cyprus, we are proud to have an underwater paradise which a lot to offer you, and if you are lucky enough you may catch a glimpse of one of our resident Turtles or Seahorses.
The ‘Discover Scuba Diving’ course is the perfect way for anyone to experience the thrill of scuba diving. It is generally the first step that most divers take and is all done in a relaxed and enjoyable environment and really is a great experience for all individuals who take part.
We offer pickup services in the region of Paralimni, Protaras, and Agia Napa. We collect you directly from the hotel at the reception and bring you to the diving school in Pernera. If your hotel is right next to our diving school, you can of course come to us on foot or in your car.
On arrival at the diving school, you will meet your diving instructor who will ensure your comfort on our premises. You will then be required to fill out the obligatory paperwork. Of course, you also get something to drink from us (NO ALCOHOL).
Afterward, there will be time for your theory input with your diving instructor. Here you will learn, among other things,
... how pressure equalization works
... what equipment you need for diving
... how we move underwater
... how we protect the underwater world and why
Now it's about finding the right equipment for you. We have a large selection of sizes and you will also find separate toilets and enough space to change. As soon as we have everything together, we load the equipment onto our vehicle and drive to the dive site
Upon arrival at the dive site, we help with your equipment with a secondary check to ensure everything is in order and more importantly safe for the dive and then it's straight into the sea. Where we enter it is very calm and clear and is only standing water. Here we can slowly get used to breathing underwater. We are happy to take a little more time here as it is very important to us that you feel comfortable and that all questions are answered.
As soon as you feel comfortable we ask you to give us the OK sign and then we slowly dive out of the bay. Here too, we do everything step by step. The bay drops very slowly, which allows us to slowly dive deeper along the bottom. It is not imperative that we reach a certain depth. Remember at all times, this is your dive and you may, of course, tell us to stop anytime if you don't want to go deeper or don't feel safe for whatever reason. There is a lot to discover even on a shallow dive. However, if you feel comfortable, we will dive to a maximum depth of 10 meters, where you will find an idyllic spot for the perfect photo opportunity. This area is full of statues to admire and pose with. From this point, we move slowly back around and begin the ascent back into the bay.
Back at the diving school, we will take 5 to sit down, have a drink, and a nibble, and talk about what we experienced. If you are interested, you can also buy photos or a video of your first dive here. You will also have the option of taking a shower or drinking or eating something directly at our connected Restaurant The Tipsy Turtle. By now we are confident you will be as fascinated by diving as we are. You have the option of obtaining the PADI Open Water Diver license. You can find more information here.
We will then be happy to drive you back to the hotel.
