Beginners Scuba Diving Intro Event

This event is for a group of beginners to complete a try dive and join other beginners in experiencing scuba diving for the first time. No previous diving experience is required as the aim of this event is to give the confidence to undertake your first try dive with other beginners. If you are interested in this event then RSVP. Come on first time divers now is the time to check out a try dive in an escorted controlled environment at a fantastic local London dive centre. We are looking at a group of 12 divers which will inlcude non try divers looking to fit in some pool time with equipment. We also welcome non try divers who want to dive at the same time with just the requirement for kit hire. The try dive will be £25.00 each and the kit hire on its own for non try divers will be £15.00. Places are still available so please RSVP if you want to come along. If people want to go for a drink afterwards then this can be arranged at a local pub.

    Yes it was very good and very enjoyable. Well Done all as it was a great success and great social afterwards. Had a great time. We will definitely organise further sessions for all those beginner divers looking to try scuba diving.

  • Zohaib

    Does a try dive need the diver to be an expert swimmer as well? That I fear I am not

    October 5, 2013

    • Steve H

      Hi. No you do not need to be an expert swimmer. You do need to be comfortable in water though.

      October 5, 2013

  • Rick C.

    Hi Mark. Looks good. I'm hoping to come as non try dive but willing to help. Need to sort out transport to come in from Wokingham that early...

    October 4, 2013

  • Steve H

    Hi Mark, I won't be able to confirm until the 12th (when I am back from holiday) for non try dive. So if you hit 6 or 12 don't worry about me. Steve

    The dive school have confirmed that we can include non try divers but we have a maximum of two groups of 6 people so 12 in total for this dive session. I think the kit hire will be £15.00 for the session. Please can all RSVP's confirm they are still available for 26 October 2013 and will be coming. Then I will know how many places are left for non divers. Thank you.

    October 2, 2013

  • Mark A.

    The date has now been set for Saturday 26 October 2013. The price is £25.00 for the try dive. I am currently requesting further information regarding whether non try divers can come along as well. Will find out today and let you know.

    October 2, 2013

  • Mark A.

    We have an agreement with the London School of Diving. We are looking at a Saturday in October 2013. It will be in the last two weeks hopefully. The price will be £25.00 each for a try dive. I am also looking at Dry Suit sessions if possible on the same day. As soon as confirmed I will update this event.

    If the eventual time suits, I would be willing to assist with training on this event. I used to instruct for my former BSAC club when I lived in Birmingham, and am very well used to try-dives and basic pool training!
