Want to get a taste of scuba diving? Then come and join the PADI Discover Scuba Diving course on the stunning island of Terceira with a team of expert scuba divers.
You'll meet the team of expert instructors at the diving centre, who'll help you settle in and answer any questions you may have. You'll then have a short theory session explaining the basics of scuba diving.
Your instructor will then give you a presentation of the equipment you'll be using, after which you'll get geared up to make your way into the diving pool. In the pool you'll put your theory into practice, making sure you understood the basic techniques and gestures such as breathing underwater.
Once your instructor is fully confident that you're comfortable in the water, he'll take you over to the house reef, so you can try scuba diving in the open water.
