Introduction to Diving


So you have never dived before but you would like to give it a go? Just what is diving? Well it can be relaxing yet on the other hand it can be action-packed. Sometimes it's tranquil, sometimes it is adrenaline pumping.

Adventurous? Yes, but it is also very safe.

Diving is a sport enjoyed by many people all over the world, and there are many parts of the world you can enjoy it.

The best choice for the first-timer is an Try Dive, also known as a "Introductory Dive". The two terms all basically mean the same thing - a way to get wet, experience the sensation of weightless feeling of flying under water all whilst under very close supervision of an instructor.

A Try Dive or Introductory Dive does not get you a qualification you can use later on. It is a one off experience to see if you enjoy the sensation.

The dive begins with a dry briefing beside the pool. Afterwards you do a couple of skills in the water followed by a short shallow dive in safe surrounds of a pool, then progressing to the deep end. Your dive takes between 1/2hr to an 1hr.

The Instructor is by your side the whole time and will even hold your hand if you feel the need. On conclusion of the dive you may get a wall certificate or card for the Try Dive (Introductory Dive) and a photo if the photographer is present.

Please remember that this certificate is not a qualification and will not allow you any privileges next time you dive - it is simply a memento of one of the best experiences of your life. To get a recognised qualification you will need to complete a BSAC Ocean Diver Course.

We look forward to seeing you in the water soon.
