A Try Dive is where the journey begins.
Sessions are held nearly every Sunday evening at our training pool at the One Leisure St Ives Indoor Centre. Almost anyone over the age of 16 can do a Try Dive. A Try Dive can help you save time and money by finding out in advance if you like diving. It allows you the chance to sample an exciting sport and to gain an insight into the fascinating world beneath the waves.
Each Try Dive is about 1 hour in duration, including poolside tuition on diving techniques and equipment. This is followed by a scuba dive in the pool with a BSAC qualified instructor, to make sure you get maximum enjoyment from your first scuba dive.
In the equivalent of 4-6 days continuous training you could be a BSAC Ocean Diver, a scuba qualification that will help you witness first hand the wonders of a coral reef. Experience the host of marine life, underwater wrecks, a whole new world for you to explore. And it is a sport that keeps you fit too.
What do I need to do a Try Dive?
- Minimum age: 16.
- An optional t-shirt to wear in water – helps stop the aqualung straps from rubbing.
- Any mask or fins you may already have, but we can supply these.
- And…a sense of adventure!
Can I give someone a Try Dive as a present?
St. Ives SAC can organise a Try Dive as a Birthday, Christmas, Thank-you, Congratulations or whatever the occasion may be.
Are there any restrictions?
The only requirements are that you have no known significant medical problems (especially heart conditions, serious ear or sinus problems, lung damage, asthma, fits or epilepsy).
