Try Dive

What is a Try dive

Have you ever wondered what it's like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge with a full certification course, a 1hr pool try dive will let you try scuba to see if you like it.

While not an actual scuba certification, during the scuba dive experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

The Fun Part!

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to – after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realise how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Try Dive programme is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the programme is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!

What You Learn

You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional.
You will learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it.

Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater, learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step

The Scuba Gear You Will Use

All the equipment you will need is typically included in a Pool Try Dive experience. You'll just need to bring a towel, your swimming costume and a T-Shirt you don't mind getting wet in the pool. You’ll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask, snorkel and fins, a buoyancy compensating device that also carries your scuba tank, a weight belt and a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor your air supply.

The Learning Materials You Need

Just your willingness and undivided attention


To take part in a Scuba Diving North West Pool Try Dive you must be at least 10 years old and complete a standard liability and medical questionnaire form.
