Ocean Encounters

Discover or Try Diving in Curacao

Have you ever considered trying to learn how to scuba dive? If you have, then you are invited to discover or try scuba diving in Curacao with Ocean Encounters!

The SSI or PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) programs are short try-diving experiences designed for adults and children aged 10+. These 1 day programs introduce the participants to the basics of scuba diving without certifying you as a diver. 

Discover diving experiences are designed to be fun introductions so you can easily explore the underwater world under supervision. After a detailed briefing about the effects of water pressure, underwater communication, equipment use, and diving safety you are ready to dive in!

SSI and PADI Discover Diving Experiences

The attraction to the underwater world and its mysteries is by far one of the best reasons to discover and try scuba diving.  Let’s face it, human beings cannot naturally breathe underwater therefore this unattainable undersea world then becomes an attraction largely because we cannot control it.  Or can we?

At Ocean Encounters, we specialize in both SSI and PADI courses for every level, from beginner to dive professional.

If you are short on time or just want to experience diving for the first time, then sign up for our SSI or PADI Discover Scuba Diving half day experience to give it a “try” – no experience necessary.

Once you try, you’ll definitely want to join our SSI  or PADI Open Water Diver Course to become a certified diver for life!

Why should you become a Certified Scuba Diver?

Before we can answer the question why you should become a certified scuba diver – it is important to know what scuba diving is.

The answer is surprising simple – it is the independent ability to breathe underwater via a Self-contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus (SCUBA) while exploring or swimming at depth that does not exceed your training or ability.

If you’re fascinated by the underwater world and the amazing creatures who live there, a SSI or PADI scuba diving certification is your passport to discover extraordinary experiences that support healthy oceans.

A scuba diving license identifies you as an underwater explorer and ambassador for the ocean.

A scuba certification course is much more than just learning how to explore the underwater world safely (but that’s definitely covered). It’s a great way to reconnect with nature and discover a completely new world that exists beneath the waterline!

Essentially, by the time you finish your SSI or PADI Open Water Diver course, you’ll appreciate our ocean planet in a brand new way.
