The PADI Discover Snorkelling experience teaches you to snorkel comfortably and confidently. Snorkelling is simple, fun, inexpensive and has no age barriers. It is the perfect family experience, a great way to introduce children to the underwater World in the safety of a pool, and is excellent for building in-water confidence. Build your confidence here in the UK, and take your skills away on holiday with you to investigate what snorkelling has to offer.
Our PADI Discover Snorkelling sessions are held in our pool in Telford, Shropshire. Typical sessions last about an hour (sign up, gear up and fun included). You should be comfortable in the water, but you don’t have to be a super swimmer. We can even include PADI Discover Snorkelling experiences in your pool party with family and friends.

– Swim effectively with fins
– Breathe effectively with a snorkel
– Maintain themselves comfortably in the water with ease
– Remove water from a snorkel and mask
What does it involve?
The PADI Discover Snorkelling session lasts approximately one hour, during which participants learn the basics that they need to snorkel safely and effectively. You do not need any prior experience to take part in the PADI Discover Snorkelling experience. You just need to be in good health.
On arrival we will fill in some required paperwork, introduce you to any other participants who are joining your session, and conduct a short briefing so that you understand the basics of snorkelling and the equipment they will be using. You will need your normal swimming equipment, a towel, and a t-shirt is advised.
What is next?
Once you complete a PADI Discover Snorkelling program, you’ll want to check out the PADI Skin Diver course which teaches surface diving techniques which build on your snorkelling skills, and PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience which will introduce you to scuba diving and what it is like to breathe underwater on scuba.
