Try Scuba

The Try Scuba Diving program lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of a Diving Professional in pool or pool-like conditions. During your adventure, you'll master some basic concepts and scuba skills and might even head off to experience an open water adventure.
With the Try Scuba Programme, we will issue a Course Voucher by email and you can then confirm your required booking date once the Voucher is received. You will then need to register for the online training materials and we will give you access to the Try Scuba Program. Full instructions will be sent with your voucher.
We will need a unique email address for each participant. This will be used by them to access their course materials and must be unique to them. This can be changed when they initially log on. Please note that system emails will be sent to this email address so if the voucher is intended as a surprise, please use an alternative, temporary email address.
Don't forget to tell us your preferred start month when you book. Once we receive your booking, we will take a look at our current availability and agree a start date. The preferred date selected is not guaranteed until we confirm the final dates by issuing an agreed schedule.
- What will I do?
When you participate in a Try Scuba Diving program, you discover excitement and adventure - freedom and serenity. Nothing compares to the "weightless" exhilaration of breathing underwater. Only a diver knows the feeling!
After working through your online materials and following a brief Lecture and Video that is conducted at the Dive Centre, we'll go to the local pool where you’ll enter the water ready for your scuba adventure. After you and your instructor strap on your scuba gear, you’ll have the chance to dive down in up to 3 metres. As soon as you Try Scuba Diving, you’re on your way to an internationally recognised certification. That’s because you may learn skills from the Open Water Diver course during your Try Scuba adventure. If you and your instructor elect to practice these skills, they may be credited to the Open Water Diver certification.
Don't worry if all this sounds complicated, the plan is to just go diving, practice some skills with your instructor if you want or simply play and have fun, get a head start on your Open Water Diver certification!
To go on your Try Scuba adventure, you must at least be 10 years or older and complete the Discover Scuba Statement that we will send through with the Voucher. This must be brought aslong with you on the day. Additional forms will need to be completed on the day of the Try Scuba dive.
- Where can I go from here?
As soon as you Try Scuba Diving, you're on your way to an internationally recognized certification. That's because you may learn skills used in the Open Water Diver course during your Try Scuba Diving adventure. If you and your instructor elect to practice these skills, they may be credited toward the Open Water Diver certification. 
- How long will it take?
Get ready to dive today. Because you will already have reviewed the online material, you will be able to get started straight away. There will be a brief review by one of our Instructors here at the shop while we sort out your equipment, then we'll go off to the pool where you'll enter the water quickly and ready for your scuba adventure.
- What will I need?
A sense of adventure 
Have completed your online materials
Minimum age: 10
- How do I book?
We hold these events most Sunday afternoons but they do get booked up a bit in advance so you'd need to book in plenty of time.
