Experience Diving without Prior Training and SEA What Lies Below!
The Discover Scuba Program here at Sweet Bottom is all about making your first experience underwater safe and memorable. We start with a classroom session to teach the students the basics to scuba diving. Then we head into the confined water (on-site pool) to get our first breaths in. Here our instructors will work in very small groups (1 instructor to 2 students) and train the students on basic scuba skills. After all of the students are comfortable, we transfer the dive gear to the beach entry and conduct a 30-45 minute dive on the beautiful house reef. We will dive to a max depth of 40' bringing us right to the edge of the wall.
How Long is the Course:
We pride ourselves in making this first experience unforgettable and we know everyone learns at a different pace. However, on average our course is 2-3 hours in length.
Minimum Age of 10 Years Old
Be Able to Complete the MEDICAL STATEMENT With ALL "NO" Answers OR Be Able to Have a Doctor SIGN OFF a Medical Statement with any "YES"s
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, understand we WILL NOT allow you in the pool or ocean if you have a "yes" without a medical signed. We have been the "bad guys" before due to this issue. We will not risk our student's safety just so they can try scuba diving.

What Will I See:
Beautiful soft & hard corals including sponges, sea fans, and brain corals
Schools of reef fish including tangs, wrasses, angel fish, damsels, barracuda, eels, & squid
Little critters such as shrimps, gobies, flamingo tongue, and arrow crabs
Turtles including Hawksbills and Green Sea Turtles
Sting rays & eagle rays
We can't promise everything, but these are what call the North Shore Reef, Home.
What If I Want to Dive MORE?:
We offer additional dives called ReDiscover Dives at an additional $85 per wall dive or $95 per pier dive. These don't necessarily need to be scheduled for the same day as your first dive. The ReDiscover Dive will be conducted just like your first experience except we will not need to go to the pool or classroom prior to the ocean. We can do these dives at the Pier or on the Wall. The ratio for ReDiscover Dives are still only, 1 instructor per 2 participants. Dive gear is includes in these dives. These must be done within (14) days of your DSD program with Sweet Bottom Dive Center.
The other option is to looking into taking a certification course! Why not take home a SCUBA DIVER or OPEN WATER Certification and really take the plunge into diving. We offer discounts for DSD students to upgrade to do, just this!
