PADI Discover Scuba Experience

  • Have you ever wanted to know what it's like to breathe underwater?

  • Ever wanted to explore a Caribbean reef or a Great Lake shipwreck?

  • Do you or your kids wish they were a fish?

  • Are you looking for a unique date night?

Discover Scuba is your chance to give scuba diving a try with little investment in time or money. After a short briefing in the classroom, this one night introduction allows for an hours worth of pool time using scuba - plenty of time to see how exciting the underwater world can be. This is also a great opportunity for divers to introduce their non-diving friends or family to this incredible experience. 


MSD's Brainerd location offers the Discover Scuba class once a month usually on Tuesday evenings. MSD - St. Cloud conducts the class through St. Cloud Community Education a couple times quarterly. When enrolling we will need to know height, weight and shoe size for each participant. There is a minimum of four participants needed so grab a few friends and have a great time. The minimum age is 10.
