PADI Discover Scuba Diving Program ( DSD )  
 
The PADI DSD Program has 2 components: 
 
1.    An introduction to Scuba Diving:  we teach you diving skills that are essential to your safety and comfort. You will also learn how to breathe underwater. Our aim is for you to become comfortable and aware in the water. We show you HOW things are done!  The introductory  sessions will be done at Murudeshwar. 
2.    In the Sea : After you have completed the Pool session,  you make your first OPEN SEA dive at Netrani Island. During this dive your instructor will assess you on your dive comfort and safety. The main focus is on you interacting with this beautiful world and becoming one with it. Upon completion of this dive the instructor will issue your DSD completion certificate.

WHAT TO EXPECT : 
Netrani is a coral island and therefore suitable for diving activities. Many varieties of coral, butterfly fish, trigger fish, parrot fish, eels and shrimps can be seen here. Divers have also reported seeing large Dolphins, Turtles and Cobia around the island. Normally diving is done from a boat which is anchored close to the island.
 
FAQ's

1).What is S.C.U.B.A?

Short for Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus. Scuba has been around as a recreational sport since the mid 1950’s.

2).Why SCUBA diving?


Because it takes you on a fascinating voyage of discovery into the Liquid world beneath the Oceans.  Because you become part of a Global community with a recreational, non-competitive sport that takes you places, helps you discover your Oceans and meet like-minded people. Because we still know more about the moon than we do about the Oceans!
Besides, its amazingly simple to learn. And very few experiences will allow you Zero-gravity like freedom as well as the ability to not only breathe underwater but also see the citizens of that world up close. 

3).Age?

Minimum age to start is 8 years. And one can dive as long as they are Fit to Dive. something for all ages with Scuba, making it an ideal activity for everyone. 

4).What about Swimming skills?

We’ll say it loud, again.  “YOU DON’T NEED TO BE A SWIMMER TO ENJOY SCUBA”. This hold true for all who want to experience Scuba. The Pool Splash and Discover Scuba Diving programs are meant to encourage people to possibly get into the water more. Swimming skills are not required for these.

However, those enrolling for Certification Courses must have the ability to freely swim for 200 meters with no time limit or stroke –restriction and float or tread water for 10 minutes. The rationale is simple: if you want to be a Diver, you need to be able to hold your own reasonably in the swimming department. Besides, it’ll only be a Plus during Training.

5).How Fit is “Fit to Dive”?


The Medical Form gives you all the parameters that one would need to keep in mind if diving. A pre-existing condition may not always interfere with diving but a Doctor’s clearance is required should one answer “yes” to any questions in the Statement.

Our Instructor is also qualified to help you with basic queries on Health and Diving, so feel free to check with him should you have questions.
