Who is the Try Scuba Experience for?

The Try Scuba Experience is intended to allow you to get a good feel for what scuba diving is all about. Some people want to try it out before committing to a full scuba diving certification. Others, simply want to ‘give it a go’ as a one-off activity, or perhaps as a gift to a loved one for a special birthday or anniversary gift. There’s no right or wrong. Anyone aged 8 years plus can participate, providing they can swim and are comfortable in water.

What to Expect from the Try Scuba Experience

Unlike other dive centres, our sessions are delivered on a private, one-to-one basis. This allows us to provide you with the best level of service and a completely personalised experience. It’s also possible to do the experience as a couple or with a friend / relative if you wish, but we only teach on a maximum ratio of 2 students to 1 instructor at a time.

All equipment is provided by us; you will just need to bring along your personal swimwear, t-shirt and a towel.

When you sign up for the Try Scuba Experience, we will explain in more detail what is involved and discuss the paperwork and forms that must be completed. We will also provide you access to a video and some online reading materials. You are advised to review these prior to the pool session, as they provide useful context and background information.

On arrival at the pool, we will greet you, ensure all paperwork is in order and show you where you can get changed. Once on poolside, we will start the session with a safety briefing, followed by an overview of the equipment.

From that point on, our main aim is to ensure you get a good feel for scuba and enjoy yourself! We will do some basic breathing exercises before descending below the surface. You will discover what it feels like to be completely weightless and glide through the water… a fantastic sensation! Depending on how comfortable you feel, we may introduce some basic skills too.

You will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and afterwards, well have a de-brief and talk about next steps.

Photo Memories

We provide all our clients with the chance to have their photos taken underwater. This is an optional, free service which many people opt for, since they love to share the memories with their friends, family and social networks.
