These facilities are perfect for any introduction to diving. The pool depths range from 1 metre to 3 metres which is sufficient for all diving training requirements. Our central London dive courses take place just behind London's iconic Carnaby Street in the state-of-the-art £38m Marshall Street leisure centre, containing arguably the finest pool in central London.
This 30m long pool gives students tonnes of room to swim around in, practice their skills and fine tune their buoyancy. The pool is constantly heated to 27 degrees celsius and has a maximum depth of 3m (10ft).
This centre also has a conference room for any study aspects of the dives and for registration prior to getting the kit.
PADI DISCOVER SCUBA - £45.00
A try dive is also available which is a taster dive so you can briefly experience being underwater with the equipment. This will be cheaper than the official PADI Discover Scuba.
Have ever wondered what it's like to breathe underwater? This is an ideal way of experiencing the under water world without having to commit to a PADI course like for example the PADI Open Water. If you want to check out what scuba diving is like than the try dive is the perfect option for you. You will me assisted by excellent qualified instructors who are trained to offer you the best experience and make you feel comfortable in the water allowing you to enjoy the experience. Once you complete a try dive you will be unable to remove the smile from your face for a while as you soak in the experience of the underwater world. This is not a scuba diving certification it is certainly a good way of seeing how you feel under water. During the scuba diving try dive experience you'll learn how to use scuba equipment in a warm pool and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. Of course it can take a little getting used to but with a little time and guidance you will be diving underwater enjoying the experience. You will soon see how easy scuba diving is and also gain experience of what scuba kit is and what it does which is perfect exposure prior to any PADI Open Water Course. Usually it is harder to get people out of the water than into the water as the experience takes hold of them and they don't want it to end. What You Learn
You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of one of our PADI Professionals. One thing you'll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not. You will!
Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to glide around underwater while wearing it.
Find out what it's like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there.
Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step.
The Scuba Gear You Use
All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask , snorkel and fins, a buoyancy compensating jacket that also carries your scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply.
PADI REFRESHER DIVE/REVIEW - £75.00
If you are looking to go on holiday soon and have not dived for over a year then you will want to consider completing a scuba diving refresher course. This course will give you the confidence again prior to any planned holiday.
If you haven’t dived for a while, or are a bit apprehensive about getting back in the water and want to freshen up your skills then a PADI Scuba Review is for you. Most dive centres around the world will insist that you complete a Scuba Review if you haven't dived for 12 months or longer.
You’ll run through the important aspects of the theory and go through the important skills you learn't on your PADI Open Water course in the safety and comfort of a heated swimming pool.
The course normally takes 3-4 hours.
Please remember to bring along your PADI certification card and log book.
POOL SESSION - £15.00
If you are looking to just spend time in the water and you are already qualified as PADI Open Water then you can join us for this session and spend time in the pool testing out kit and practicing. Lets be honest it is difficult to find the opportunity to have time in a pool testing out kit and getting used to equipment or dive computers. This way you will not have the pressure of group holiday diving and you can have around 1 hour 30 minutes to do what you want.
If you want to undertake any of the above dives then RSVP and let me know which dive you want. All dives will need to be booked in by us and paid for so payment will be requested prior to the event itself once dive has been confirmed.
