Discover Scuba in Panglao with Valm Divers

Scuba diving seems scary for someone who never tried it before. However, guided by professionals your first time trying scuba shouldn’t be frightening at all, but excited rather. Many people who come to the Philippines and to Bohol do it for scuba diving as it’s really one of the best destinations in the world for diving. You could join the experience yourself and try scuba is the smallest step you can take, and perhaps even the best thing to do even before you do your Open Water Course.

If you choose to continue from your Discover Scuba Experience to an Open Water Course immediately after you finish, we’ll waive the cost of the Try Scuba Experience and consider it as the first dive of your Open Water Course. You could continue with the same instructor for a seamless experience. The open water course takes around 2 to 3 days so take it into account if you plan to progress to it from your discover scuba.


Booking your Discover Scuba with Valm Divers in Advance is recommended. Booking ahead will ensure that our instructors will be free to take you on the first step of your fascinating journey underwater.
