The Discover Local Diving experience consists of a site orientation, dive briefing and guided tour provided by a PADI Divemaster, PADI Assistant Instructor or PADI Instructor. Most often, divers participate in these experiences at new dive sites – places they’ve never visited. However, by focusing on an unfamiliar aspect, you could offer Discover Local Diving experiences at familiar sites. For example, instead of diving on a reef, spend the dive exploring the sandy area that surrounds it.
