If you are unsure if Scuba diving is for you, it would be wise to have a try dive.In the safety of the pool you will be able to take a one to one session with one of our Dive Instructors to give you a basic introduction to diving at a rate you are comfortable with.
You will be introduced to and experienced instructor, and there will be the opportunity to ask questions and highlight any concerns that you may have. You will be fitted with a mask and fins and basic scuba equipment consisting of a bouyancy jacket, cylinder containing air and a breathing regulator. You will be given a poolside explanation of the equipment, and shown underwater hand signals and safety procedures in readiness for your dive. Entering the pool at the sahallow end you will be introduced to basic diving techniques. At all times you will be under the watchful eye of the instructor, and as you gain confidence you will be able to swim around.
After approximately 45 minutes of instruction you will have completed your try dive, and we will welcome you to visit our clubhouse, see our boats and equipment and introduce you to other members.
