Try Dives

Try Dive Request Form

Prior to diver training we organise 'try dives' in a local swimming pool to let you experience scuba diving in a safe environment. You will be taught everything you need to be able to grasp the very basics of diving and experience breathing underwater.

What do I need to bring with me?

  •  Normal swimwear

  •  A t-shirt you don't mind getting wet

  •  Towel

  •  £10* donation for 'try snorkel'

  •  £20* donation for 'try dive'

* Includes a free Octopush voucher for one person

​We will ask you to acknowledge and accept the potential risks of the event. It also ensures you are covered by our third party public liability insurance.

If you wear contact lenses, we suggest you avoid using them unless you have very poor eyesight as contact lenses and water don't tend to mix well. During the training course you will learn how to flood and empty your mask. You can buy prescription masks online if needed or mask inserts. Again, ask club members for more information. 

Thanks! Message sent.
