Learn to Scuba Dive

Try Dive in the pool

If you’re thinking about learning to scuba dive but are not sure where to start (or even if it’s for you), then you’ve come to the right place!

We offer Try Dives where you can experience using full scuba kit in a safe pool environment with one of our experienced instructors. We will provide all the equipment you need, although you may find it useful to bring your own mask and fins if you have them. Try Dives are £20 payable on booking.

We run our Try Dives in January to March each year, aiming to find a cohort of up to 4 Ocean Diver Trainees for the coming year. If you are interested in attending our next Try Dive session, please get in touch and we will put your name on the list, as places are limited.

If you enjoy your Try Dive, and want to progress, then you may have the option of signing up for our next Ocean Diver Course. Read the account of our member Becky’s experiences of training throughout Covid restrictions.

To Book a Try Dive or for more information Contact us.

We have one intake of Ocean Diver trainees each year timed to make the most of summer training and diving. Normally starting theory and pool lessons in March/April progressing to Open water in May/June.

We are looking for Ocean Diver trainees who not only want to learn to dive, but also want to be involved in our club once qualified. Imagine diving with seals at the Farne Islands, or coming on a club trip to Egypt, both trips that we enjoyed last year. Have a look at our events pages to see what’s happening this year.
