Here's your chance to learn to scuba dive and see a shipwreck -- the ideal introduction to scuba for first-time divers. This experience is part of the Discover Scuba Diving program developed by PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) for people who would like to try scuba diving, but have not taken the full certification course.

Board a USCG-certified 45-foot Corinthian boat for a ride to the Buck Island Marine Sanctuary. Here, you will participate in the Discover Scuba Diving introductory course. The course consists of three simple steps.

First, a brief orientation is led by a certified scuba instructor. Then, you'll have your first experience of scuba in a pool-like body of water. Finally, under the careful supervision of the certified instructor, first-time divers go on an actual scuba dive in shallow, calm water over a shipwreck. No prior experience is necessary to participate.


Minimum age is 10 years, accompanied by a parent or guardian in the water. Participants must know how to swim and be comfortable in the water.Wear your swimsuit; bring a towel, sunscreen and a hat. Guests with heart problems, epilepsy, diabetes or asthma are not allowed to participate. Waiver must be signed and medical conditions disclosed. Wetsuits are available for rental at USD $15 per person.
