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 into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. During the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in the pool and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
To take Discover Scuba Diving, you must be at least 10 years old. Children aged 8 years can enjoy a Bubblemaker experience.
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 Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the session is over!
What You Learn
You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you’ll learn is that you really can breath underwater and whether you like doing that or not. 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 breath underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step
All the equipment you will need is typically included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You’ll use all the basic scuba equipment including a mask, snorkel and fins, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that also carries your scuba tank, a regulator to breathe from and instruments to monitor depth and air supply.
What you need to Bring
Just bring along what you would usually take to a swimming pool (swimming costume and towel). If you have your own mask, snorkel or fins then bring those along too.
£40 including all equipment. There are no additional costs for this activity.
