The Try Dive starts with your instructor leading you through a flip chart that imparts some information you will need to know before you enter the water. Once you have been familiarised with the basics your instructor will take you to the poolside where you will be helped on with your equipment and then assisted into the pool to take your first breaths underwater!
During this lesson you will be taught some of the basic scuba diving skills.
- How to equalise ears
- Breathe from a regulator
- How to clear a regulator
- How to clear a mask
After the skills have been mastered, we’ll have a tour dive where you can spread your fins and get a taste of what it’s like to be qualified.

• Try Dive + Certificate- £0
