A "Try Scuba Diving" session, also known as a "Discover Scuba Diving" experience, is an introductory dive designed for individuals who are curious about scuba diving but may not have prior experience. The session typically involves the following components:

1. Introduction and Briefing:

A qualified instructor provides an overview of scuba diving, including the basic principles, equipment, and safety guidelines. Participants are introduced to the scuba gear they will be using during the session.

2. Safety Briefing:

A comprehensive safety briefing is conducted to ensure participants understand the importance of following safety procedures while underwater. Emergency procedures, hand signals, and basic communication underwater are explained

3. Basic Skills Instruction:

Participants are taught basic scuba skills in a confined water environment (such as a swimming pool or shallow beach area). Common skills include clearing a regulator, equalizing pressure, and basic buoyancy control

4. Gear Familiarization:

Participants become familiar with the scuba equipment, including the mask, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device (BCD), and tank. Instructors help participants put on and adjust the scuba gear, ensuring a comfortable fit.

5. Confined Water Dive:

Participants enter the confined water environment (usually a pool) to practice the skills learned during the briefing. The instructor closely supervises participants as they become accustomed to breathing underwater and practice basic maneuvers.

6. Discovering the Underwater World:

Participants get to experience the sensation of weightlessness and the thrill of breathing underwater in a controlled environment. The instructor may guide participants around the confined water area to explore and enjoy the underwater surroundings

It's important to note that a Try Scuba Diving session is not a certification course. It is a one-time experience designed to provide a taste of scuba diving under the guidance of a professional instructor. Participants who enjoy the session may choose to pursue a formal scuba diving certification for further training and more independent diving experiences.

what does it cost, how long does it take?

Try Scuba or Discover Scuba Diving experience sessions start from £45, they run every thursday evening and take a few hours. After doing some self study at home, you meet your instructor either at the shop or at the pool (whatever you have arranged), all key skills will be explained prior to the in water session.

Once you get in the water you will cover the key skills again with your instructor, and once they have seen you can do them well you get to spend some time exploring the different sections of the pool under supervision. Once you're done we all rinse our gear and put is back in the boxes, diving is a team sport aferall. After everyone is dressed a debrief takes place either at the pool or at a local pub where you can ask about what comes next and how to get more involved with the diving club.

what comes next?

After you've completed your Try Dive you might want to sign up for either a Scuba Diver course or a Open Water diver course. The first makes you a qualified diver with an international certification, but will only let you dive under supervision of a Divemaster or Instructor. The latter is a complete stand allone certification valid world-wide allowing you to dive with a peer.
