Age: PADI offers SCUBA Diving experiences and certification courses for children as young as 8 years of age. Certain physiological effects of SCUBA Diving on a child’s developing body may pose risks therefore PADI India and Absolute SCUBA restrict kids below the age of 8 to undertake SCUBA diving activity. Similarly, there does not exist an upper age limit for diving; the only criteria are physical health, ability and enthusiasm, of course.
Medical Fitness: As SCUBA Diving is an adventure sport and comes with its own set of risks, PADI India has laid down certain medical conditions under which SCUBA diving may be unadvisable. In order to successfully undertake any diving program across the range of PADI courses, one needs to be in reasonable medical health. PADI has provided a medical questionnaire for self-evaluation which our PADI professionals will recommend every participant to read through.
What to expect: Details about the SCUBA experience
As part of the 3 hour Discover SCUBA session, watch yourself transform from an excited novice into someone well-versed with the sport of SCUBA diving. Alongside, learn our lingo too; SCUBA is short for Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus, that’s one to start with.
As you arrive for your SCUBA diving session, you will be briefed by your PADI Instructor about the history of SCUBA, the do’s & don’t’ s and taught a whole new non-verbal language to help you communicate underwater. This informative land-based session will be over before you know it, and you’ll find yourself much better prepared to enjoy the SCUBA session! Your PADI Instructor will provide you with world-class SCUBA equipment customized to your fit. And not just any gear – the best SCUBA gear in India!
Once you’re in the water, you’ll be taught to breathe in the confines of the shallows, until you feel comfortable to move to the deep end. When you’ve reached your comfort zone, you will be accompanied by your instructor for a ONE on ONE underwater cruise, and can do all sorts of cool stuff underwater. You get to experience Neutral Buoyancy – the Holy Grail of the SCUBA Diver – which is the awesome feeling of being Weightless Underwater!
Buoyancy control will allow you to try your hand at backflips, somersaults and other snazzy underwater tricks, and we will take great pictures of you making unforgettable memories.
This session is only the start of a lifelong adventure you could embark upon with the magical sport of SCUBA diving. Absolute SCUBA Pune assures you that the experience and skills taken from this session will enhance your comfort when you decide to sign up for the PADI Open Water Certification Course in Pune.
