Swansea Divers Try Dive

19/02/2014 - 19:00 - 22:00

A few times a year the club hosts a 'TRY DIVE' which offers members of the local community to try out scuba diving in a safe, friendly, pool environment.*

An instructor will take you through the basic SCUBA skills, and for the more adventurous (or if you've dived before), the instructor may show you some more advanced skills.


The format of the evening is very simple -

  • Come along to the Club House at 7pm on the evening of the try dive.
  • Bring some pool wear, usually swimming trunks or shorts and a t-shirt or rash vest (a t-shirt or rash vest will prevent the equipment rubbing on your shoulders), and a towel.
  • At the club you will receive a brief introduction from our Diving Officer and then our Training Officer will give a brief presentation about the equipment.
  • This usually takes no more then 20 minutes, and then it is off to the pool, where a well trained group of club members will organise the equipment, and answer any questions you may have.
  • After that its time for the main event! You will don your SCUBA (Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus) equipment and your instructor will take you for your first underwater experience, all in complete safety.

After that, its a quick trip back to the club, where we have a short debriefing and hopefully you will put your name down to complete our Ocean Diver Course, the first step on your scuba diving career, and a qualification that will allow you to dive the world over!

The Try-Dive costs just £10!

If you can't make it on the night but still want to learn to dive, please contact us using the details on the website contact page, as we can be flexible about arranging sessions at later dates.

Happy Diving!
