Discover Scuba

If you've ever wondered what it's like to breathe air underwater and experience the underwater world, you can do so very easily. Discover Scuba Diving is a simple, swimming-pool based introduction to scuba diving. It is designed to appeal to all ages, and can be achieved in one evening. This is also an ideal programme for community groups such as Scouts and Guides, and even for birthday "splash" parties!

The Discover Scuba experience does not lead to a qualification. If you have already tried diving and want to take it further, you should be looking at our Open Water Course in 3 easy stages.
