Discover Scuba Diving


Discover Scuba Diving Course £95.00

The Discover Scuba Diving course with Big Squid is an exciting taster session that is suitable for anyone who wishes to try scuba diving for the first time.

You will have the opportunity to experience the thrill and weightlessness that comes with being able to breathe underwater.

The Discover Scuba Course takes place within the safe confines of a large heated swimming pool. The class lasts for approximately 2 hours and comprises an introduction to the concepts of pressure and buoyancy. We also teach you about equipment familiarisation and cover all the important safety drills required for this safe and enjoyable experience.
