Students prepare for the discover dives by reading the Reef Check handout.  The PDF is free of charge and can be found at on the Scuba Fusion website. The reading is optional but highly recommended.

Also, these dives are a great opportunity to break in new gear.  You will dive in varying conditions to see what works and what does not.  A Scuba Fusion instructor/divemaster will be with you every step of the way to guide you with new equipment.
