Discover / Try Scuba Diving

The Try Scuba Diving session lets you experience the thrill of diving underwater whilst under the close supervision of one of our Dive Professionals.  During your adventure, you'll master some basic concepts and scuba skills, gain experience of breathing and seeing underwater and feel the attraction of SCUBA through being weightless, enhancing your own sense of serenity and relaxation.  

Whether you approach the Try Dive for a “try” or “experience” or both, we are sure the adventure will stay clearly in your memory!

What Do I need to start?

  • Be at least 8 years or older
  • Complete the Medical Questionnaire which will be released to you via the SSI App.

What will I do during a Try Scuba Diving Session

Prior to the session you will complete a small online review via the SSI App and complete all required paperwork.

Meet us at the Dive Centre prior to the pool session where you will meet your instructional team for an introductory talk, be fitted and introduced to the equipment you’ll be using as well as the all important safety briefing and what you can expect.  

After arriving at our local pool facilities - Oakham School Pool, Kilburn Road, Oakham  you will enter the water ready for your scuba adventure.  You will spend a minimum of an hour underwater but maybe the entire two hours if you can make it last that long (and most do!), and we know you’ll enjoy every minute!

We will help you through every step of your adventure.  Our staff will help you to put on your SCUBA gear and guide you into the water where you’ll have the chance to dive down up to 3 metres. 

When are your Try Scuba Diving Sessions?

Our pool session(s) are on Saturday evenings from 18:00 - 20:00, with a meet at the Dive Centre at 17:00 (this time will be confirmed when you book).  The time at the Dive Centre is spent introducing you to your instructor, the dive equipment you will be using in the pool, a safety briefing and the evenings activities.

What Do I need to bring with me?

  • Your sense of adventure 
  • Your parent or guardian if you are under 16.
  • Swimming costume, shorts/t-shirt, towel.  
  • Please note that we do provide wetsuits for divers!​

What is my next Adventure after my Try Scuba Diving Session?

Often participants, once they participated in our Try Scuba Diving session, go on to enroll in an open water course
