RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES OF UNDERWATER DIVING FOR BEGINNERS

Introductory diving or Try-Dive
Also known as introductory scuba experience, trial diving and resort diving are dives where people without diver training or certification can experience scuba diving under the guidance of a recreational diving instructor. Introductory diving is an opportunity for interested people to find out by practical experience if they would be interested in greater involvement in scuba diving. For scuba instructors and diving schools is it an opportunity to acquire new customers. An introductory diving experience is much less time-consuming and costly than the completion of autonomous diver training, but has little lasting value, as it is an experience program only, for which no certification is issued. Introductory scuba diving experiences are intended to introduce people to recreational diving, and increase the potential client base of dive shops to include people who do not have the time or inclination to complete an entry level certification program.

Procedure
Beginners-divers are usually required to read and sign waivers to minimise liability of the dive center, and to provide a declaration that they do not suffer from any medical condition listed that would be an unacceptable risk for diving. Prior to the dive itself, an instructor teaches essential theoretical knowledge, so that the beginners-divers can dive with a low level of risk, and with informed consent. After putting on the necessary diving equipment, the beginner-diver enters the water under close supervision of the diving instructor. First of all, breathing from the scuba regulator is practiced at the water surface.
At shallow water depth, some scuba skills are learned: Clearing the diving mask, removing the regulator from the mouth and replacing and clearing it of water. These two skills are essential for the safety of the participants. Afterwards, there may be an opportunity to either play underwater games or explore the surroundings in shallow water. Trial diving usually takes about one to one and half hour.
The beginners-divers learn the basic minimum safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a diving professional instructor. If one or more open water dives are included, a few more basic skills will be practiced in confined water.

The course includes:
- Introduction to the scuba equipment used to dive and how to move around underwater using the equipment.
- Breathing underwater on open circuit scuba and how to avoid barotrauma.
- Learning some of the key skills that are used during every scuba dive.
- Swimming around and exploring within the limits of the program and the local environment.
- Information on how to enroll in a training course to become a certified entry-level recreational scuba diver through the providing agencies such as CMAS, PADI and SSI.
