Try scuba diving with a £20 taster session
Would you like to try scuba diving? If you have always wanted to learn to scuba dive or are simply curious about scuba, a Try Dive with St Ives Sub Aqua Club is the perfect introduction. In the safe confines of the pool a qualified BSAC Instructor will introduce you to the thrill of breathing underwater for the very first time!
We can run Try Dives most weeks – all you will need is a swimming costume or shorts, and a t-shirt to wear in the water. We’ll provide the rest!
What to expect
We’ll introduce you to your Instructor who will tell you what will happen.
You can also chat to the rest of us about anything you like and have any questions answered.
Before your Try Dive you will be asked to read and complete a medical form.
Your Instructor will run you through a few basic safety procedures along with a brief explanation of your SCUBA equipment.
Once you are comfortable and happy, we can try swimming underwater and allow you to experience the feeling of weightlessness underwater.
What do I need to bring?
Just your normal swimming gear plus a t-shirt – this helps make wearing the dive gear more comfortable for most people.
Can anyone do a Try Dive?
Unfortunately we cannot provide try dives to anyone under the age of 18.
Can I bring a friend?
Of course! We can run several Try Dives on the same night. Or, if you have friends or family who would just like to watch, that’s fine too, just bring them along!
