Interested in learning to Scuba Dive and about the adventure of Scuba Diving and the true sensation of Weightlessness? Then you’ll love this.

We meet at the DiveLife shop in Whitefield, where we will go over the basic theory and Scuba Diving concepts with you, once completed we will find the right size Scuba Equipment to suit you and head over to the pool. The 1-hour sessions start with a quick briefing from one of our professionally trained instructors and then it’s into the shallow end to put on the Scuba equipment and take your first breaths underwater.

You will be introduced to the basic concepts of Scuba Diving and at your instructor’s discretion, you will be invited into the deep end of our pool.

What To Expect At Your Try Dive

What To Bring To Your Try Dive

Your Instructor will explain to you what it takes to safely embark on your Scuba Diving Try Dive, you'll be asked to do 2 or 3 really basic but fun skills that allow you to feel in control in the pool. If all is well you will go for a little swim and may even go to the deeper part of the pool.

Your Scuba Diving Instructor will keep a close eye on you and our group sizes are small, so there is plenty of personal attention!

Bring some coins for the lockers at the pool, bring appropriate swimwear and a towel.
If you like, some shampoo for the showers afterward can be pleasant.

Most of all bring a positive attitude and a big smile ready to enjoy the underwater experience.

We often go for a refreshing beverage afterward and you are always welcome to join us!
