HOW TO START - DISCOVER DIVING
The most important decision is already made: you are reading this, which means you are interested. But what should you know before you begin your training to become a scuba diver?
First, try diving with your chosen GUE instructor without a commitment to a course. GUE’s Discover Diving program is designed as an introduction for individuals with no previous scuba diving experience. This program does not result in certification but can serve as an introduction to a course or as a standalone experience. This experience will show you what you are really signing up for, what the training will look like, and help you determine if you and the instructor are a good fit.
Diving involves physical activity, and you are dependent on a set of equipment that enables you to breathe underwater.
Diving requires some knowledge about basic physics and physiology, understanding of the equipment, team mindset, and certainly, involves overcoming difficulties. You may even be asked to face some fears because, in the end, underwater is not a human environment.
So, give it a try first and see if you like it. And if you do, we can promise you one thing – it will never let you go!
Obtain a physician’s prior written authorization for use of prescription drugs, except for birth control, or for any medical condition that may pose a risk while diving.

The program is normally conducted over one day. It requires a minimum of one in-water session and at least four hours of instruction, encompassing classroom lectures, land drills, and in-water work. An optional open water dive can be conducted at the instructor’s discretion.
