Discover Scuba Diving at Jumeirah Beach for just Dhs.100

Got this through an email forward from a friend

“The Royal Scuba Divers International (RSDI) will hold its 3rd Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) on May 23, 2008, Friday at Jumeirah Open beach (see details attached). We invite you to participate in this exciting event and see if diving is for you. I guarantee you that your life will never be the same again!

My friend wrote back asking for more information…and this was their reply:

Thank you for the interest. Discover Scuba Diving is your opportunity to try scuba diving and allows you to experience the excitement and thrill of diving under the safe supervision of a PADI professional. During your adventure, you will master some of the basic concepts and skills in scuba diving. No, this is not the actual course but you will be given the opportunity to experience diving underwater. An orientation will be conducted prior to the actual diving on the same day. The fee of AED100 is inclusive of all diving gears, fins, mask, air tank, BCD, regulator, everything. All you have to do is be in your bathing suit.

Sounds cool…at Dhs.100..should be a great intro to scuba diving.
