Are you curious about diving, but not ready for a commitment? Do you ever wonder what it’s like to breathe underwater, and experience the underwater world? Then Dive In! In one easy pool session you’ll get a feel for breathing and weightless swimming underwater. It’s for everyone aged 8 and up. Perfect for scouts, guides, and birthday splash parties, or for corporate parties, anniversaries, or any special occasion!

The Perfect Introduction to Diving

The PADI Discover Scuba & Bubblemaker Experiences teach anyone aged 8 and up to dive in the safe, relaxed, and fun environment of a warm pool. At only £49.99 for 1 adult and 1 child, it’s not a qualification, but if you try it, and like it, you can progress onto the PADI Seal Team programme at the age of 8, or the PADI Open Water Diver Course at the age of 10.

What’s Involved?

• It’s for anyone aged 8 and up of average good health, able to swim, and comfortable in the water
• It’s conducted by PADI Leaders & Instructors
• No pre-training is required
• All equipment is provided, using equipment made for children and adults
• The maximum depth is 2 metres
• A typical in water session lasts for approx 45 mins, but briefing, kitting up, dekitting, debrief & presentation of participation certificates extends the session to around 2.5 hrs
