Aquatic adventure for the whole family to enjoy starts with an introductory lesson on safety and under water mobility techniques, before getting to grips with weightlessness and essential scuba equipment. The course will take place in a swimming pool under controlled conditions and is a great way for the family to get a basic understanding of diving and find out if it is an activity to pursue further. It's also great for anyone thinking about taking a full PADI Open Water Diving Course. At the end of the session, younger children (under the age of 10) will get a surprise gift to take away as a memento.
Monday to Thursday evenings.
