Beginner Scuba Diving Courses in Phoenix, AZ

Step one in your journey starts right here at Deep Sea Scuba in Phoenix, AZ. As a PADI Certified Dive Center, we will guide you through the process to not only provide you the knowledge and training that you need out there in the water, but we leverage our years of experience to teach you some of the ‘tricks of the trade’ so to speak. Not sure if you are ready to take that plunge? No need to worry, if you aren’t sure if you are quite ready to take a certification course, stop by our Dive Center and try it out for yourself! We have a pool located on site where we can suit you up and get you in the water to alleviate any concern you have about diving. Our expert staff will walk you through every step of our underwater experience! While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

Start With The Basics!

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge for Deep Sea Scuba in Phoenix, AZ, is coaxing Discover Scuba Diving participants out of the water when the program is over! The fun part? It’s a ton of fun! Plus, you can get credit! If your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, your experience may count toward PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead of the game when you decide to go for it!

Learning is all a part of the experience!

At Deep Sea Scuba, in our Beginners Class, you will learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. The first thing you’ll learn is that you really can breathe underwater! You will also find out quickly whether you like doing that or not. Scuba is not for everyone! Our goal is for you to learn:

  • Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it
  • Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
  • Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step
All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You’ll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, a wetsuit, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that carries your weights and scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply. All you need to bring is your willingness to learn and undivided attention! Oh, and you must be at least 12 years old…
