Fill out an important medical questionnaire and waiver. If you answer YES to any of the medical questions, you may not participate in the dive course.

The first step of your PADI Discover Scuba Dive course is a dry land lesson that covers basic skills, important rules, underwater communication and basic scuba diving theory.

Next, slip on all the necessary equipment and wade off the sandy shore into the shallow, calm water (conditions may vary according to the day of your course). Practice the basic skills you learned and get accustomed to your equipment.

Embark on your first open water dive, following your instructor as they feed the fish on the reef. Float weightlessly along the coral reef and keep an eye out for stingrays and sea turtles. The dive portion typically lasts about 40 minutes, to a maximum depth of 40 feet, depending on your comfort level. Your instructor will monitor your air gauge carefully. 

After your course, you are welcome to stay and use the provided snorkel equipment to explore Coki Beach. All-day rental of snorkel equipment is included with your dive course. 

You will walk away with an information booklet and a certificate of completion, which you can use toward further scuba certification.

This tour was a lot of fun, and was what got us into Scuba diving in the first place. After completing this tour we spent the next several days with them becoming certified.

Great knowledge instructors. Easygoing. Was all in surf on busy beach, but felt safe and educated. Great undersea experience. My boys wanted to do it again!

Our family really enjoyed this excursion. My husband is certified but wanted me and our kids 15 and 17 to get exposure to diving so that we can potentially all get certified together. Gabe, our instructor was very patient with our questions and made us feel comfortable once we entered the water. Staff at the place itself was very friendly and loved the fact that we also were able to get snorkeling equipment while we hung out at Coki beach and fed the fish.

It's definitely a short time, but very good for non-experienced scuba divers. They have go-pros for you to use but you have to purchase.
I suggest that this company takes some pictures and sell them. I definitely would've paid for a good picture of me scuba diving.

First time scuba diving and my wife and I had a great time! The instructor, Dale, was amazing and made us feel comfortable using the equipment and gave very detailed attention the entire time. The fish and coral reef were beautiful. I highly recommend these guys and will definitely do it again!

What a great experience!!! Def recommend going here! Even if you just go to the beach and snorkel if scuba diving isn't for you!
There was some great rocks right off the beach that you could see sooooooo many amazing fish and coral! But I suggest doing the scuba dive! We had Michelle who was amazing, patient and a great instructor! Anyone can learn and do this in a safe comfortable environment!
We were soooooooo happy we did the full experience, it was the highlight of our entire cruise!!!!
Thanks Coki Dive! Everyone was friendly and very helpful!!!

It was a great trip! First time Scuba diving, and what an experience. The staff was very knowledgeable and patient. My boyfriend and I were a bit nervous at first, at the thought of trusting the mouth piece to supply the needed oxygen! Once you get the breathing down everything else is pretty spectacular. It was just enough time for a first time dive, the pressure of the water gets to you. We didn't see any sea turtles :-, but the reef and other sea life were amazing to look at so close and personal! For an additional cost they also take pictures for you and they get sent to your email. Overall, amazing first time experience, if you are more experienced you may want to go deeper or longer, I am sure they can accommodate if you call ahead and ask. The only reason I did not give a 5 star is because I wish we saw more sea critters, although that is not the Diving sites fault, and I wish they took more pictures, it was a 4 star EXPERIENCE, but overall 5 star service!

What a great place to dive for your first time!! The staff and instructors were great. My wife and I and our three kids 15,13,12 had a great time! My youngest and I went back a second time two days later for more fun! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to explore the waters a bit deeper :

It ends up only me with the instructor. She is very nice, patient and detailed. Saw lots of fish, corals and heimcrabs. It's good for any swimming level.
