Try Dives

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!
