Discover Scuba Diving in Tioman

Home / Tickets / Update* / Blog

Have you always wondered what it's like to be able to breathe underwater? Well, now you're able to experience for yourself what it is like, but without needing to take the full scuba diving certification course. How? By following a kind of Scubadiving Light program called Discover Scuba Diving.

Discover Scuba Diving, which is also known as DSD, enables you to have a go at scubadiving to see if you like it. If it's not for you, no harm done, at least you tried. But if you find that you like scubadiving and you want to go further, then just go ahead and do the full-on scuba course, for example, the PADI Open Water course.

Now, whilst Discover Scuba Diving isn't an actual scuba certification, by following the Discover Scuba Diving experience you will learn how to use scuba equipment and get a quick, basic and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the magnificent underwater world. By the way, Discover Scuba Diving will be in shallow water, so there's no worries about the depth of the water you're in.

Best of all, when doing the Discover Scuba Diving course, you'll learn the basics needed to scubadive whilst under the direct supervision of PADI Professionals. So you're in good hands.

Discover Scuba Diving - Beach Option

Relax by one of Tioman's countless gorgeous beaches and gain your first insights into the marine life and the world of scubadiving. Our Discover Scuba Diving Instructor will take you into the shallows so you can practice the basic skills of scubadiving. In most cases, you'll find yourself gliding alongside the fishes of Tioman Island before you can say "easy-peasy". This first Discover Scuba Diving dive will, our Instructor will take you to a maximum depth of 12 meters. This option is a great way to try scubadiving whilst still being with a stone's throw from the beach, i.e. terra firma.

Discover Scuba Diving - Boat Option

The Discover Scuba Diving course can also be taken from the safety of a boat. In fact, we'll take you to one of the best scubadiving locations off Tioman called "Coral Island". Here, your Discover Scuba Diving instructor will give you a three part Discover Scuba Diving experience, consisting of:

1. A short briefing on equipment, pressure and the marine life.
2. Your first confined water dive where you will learn the basics.
3. Next, you'll experience an amazing dive to 12 meters in Tioman Island's warm, crystal-clear waters.

Incidentally, the skills you've learned during the Discover Scuba Diving program may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification. This means that once you've done the Discover Scuba Diving course, you can hit the ground running doing to the full PADI Open Water course. With this head-start, you'll be certified faster than if you'd started from scratch. Win-win!
