What You Can Expect

St Thomas Discover Scuba Diving

Discover scuba in St Thomas!

Make your way to the Coki Beach Dive Shop, located on Coki Beach in St Thomas. Meet your PADI Dive Master and small group of 4 students or fewer, ensuring personalized attention and safety.

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.

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.

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!!!
