Breathing underwater for the first time is an exhilarating experience, and it is something you can easily achieve with our try dive sessions.

Try dives give you the opportunity to experience scuba diving in the safe environment of a swimming pool. Each try dive is about one hour in duration. We’ll start poolside explaining some basic diving techniques and showing you the equipment you’ll be using. This is followed by a dive in the pool with one of our club’s BSAC qualified instructors – who’ll make sure you get maximum enjoyment from your first scuba experience.

Our club holds regular try dive experiences, so if you’d like a taste of what scuba diving is all about, please get in touch via the Contact Us section to arrange your first dive.

Are a member of a club or society who would like to try Scuba diving as a group event? Please get in contact with us and we can arrange a tailored session.
