Try Scuba Diving

Do you want to try Scuba diving but don't have a license or the time to get a license? Then you should try the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Program. In just one day you will be scuba diving under the instruction of one of our Scuba Instructors. This is not a certification class but it can count towards the Open Water class.

Important Information

Reservations are required. You must be able to tread water for at least 2 minutes and swim from one side of a pool to the other one time. There is no swim test for this class but these requirements are for your safety.

  • Minimum age is 10, and those under 18 need a parent or guardians approval and signature.


The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of a PADI Instructor in pool or pool like conditions, such as those found at a local freshwater spring. During your adventure, you'll first master some basic concepts and scuba skills and then head off to do two Dives in pristine Weeki Wachee Spring. We can typically see turtles, otters, manatees, snappers, mullett and many others.

After gearing up we learn some basic scuba skills (nothing but fun... we promise). We will then meet back up with the rest of the group where you will experience the exhilaration of your first scuba dive with a certified AUTS Instructor.
If you have a certified diver in your group that would like to join you but not take the class, we also offer diving during the same excursion!
