Entry Level

Try Scuba Diving

When you Try scuba diving, you discover excitement and adventure – freedom and serenity. Nothing compares to the “weightless” exhilaration of breathing underwater. Only a diver knows the feeling! At TGI Diving Centers, the SSI and PSS Try Scuba Diving program lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of a TGI Instructor in ideal conditions, such as those found at our resorts. During your adventure, you’ll master some basic concepts and scuba skills before heading off on an open water dive on our beautiful multicolored coral reefs. Your TGI instructor will guide you on your open water dive and you may go as deep as 12 metres/40 feet! (Of course this depends on where you dive), after you complete the Discover Scuba Diving course you can book up to go on some additional supervised dives during your vacation and the SSI and PSS Try Scuba Diving experience is a great way to get a head start on your SSI and PSS Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver course if you then decide to continue. That’s because the skills you complete during your adventure may credit towards these certification levels, be sure to ask our staff how.
