Why not book a try-dive
A Try-Dive lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of an experienced instructor in a swimming pool. During your Try-Dive,
you'll be taught some basic diving skills before plunging into the weightless underwater environment.

We take individuals or small groups of up to four persons who want to experience scuba diving for the first time or even the second.
Each Try-Dive is about 50 minutes in duration. This includes poolside tuition on basic diving techniques and equipment.
This is followed by a scuba dive in the pool with your own BSAC qualified instructor to make sure that you get
maximum enjoyment from your first dive.
The Try-Dive will provide:
A brief explanation of the
major parts of a SCUBA set and their use
An explanation of ear
clearing, so that your progression to depth is made comfortably and
Instruction on key hand
signals so that you and your instructor can communicate in this silent
Instruction on fitting
and demisting a mask
demonstration in breathing from an aqualung and an opportunity to try
demonstration on how buoyancy control works and a chance to try it
Once you are
comfortable and happy, we can try swimming underwater and allow you to
experience the weightless underwater environment
If you are confident
enough and, more importantly, you want to, we will teach you some more
basic skills such as barrel rolls, somersaults etc...
This is all about fun, you will only do what you feel comfortable with. You
can even bring along a disposable underwater camera to record your first
exploration into the underwater world.
