Yes! You read that correctly! You will not be required to swim while doing this scuba program. Because your instructor will be with you at all times and will take care of you. When we reach the dive site via our boat, we anchor right at the reef. Because of this reason, discover scuba divers do not have to swim to the entry point. Also we ALWAYS have a buoy line on our reef. So that once the dive is done, we can take our divers up it and get them to the boat directly.
However, it does make your experience a lot more easier if you are comfortable in the water.
