To take the plunge, simply call your nearest BSAC club to arrange a visit. You can locate your nearest BSAC club by using our Find a club tool or call us on 0151 350 6201 and we'll arrange it all for you.
Who can do a Try Dive?
A typical Try Dive session involves poolside tuition on diving techniques and equipment, followed by a scuba dive in a swimming pool with a BSAC-qualified instructor to make sure you get maximum enjoyment from your first scuba dive.
A Try Dive can help you save time and money by finding out in advance if you like diving.
Before your Try Dive you will be asked to read and complete a medical form, please download now to take a look at the Try Dive medical and responsibility declaration.
Or why not try a snorkelling lesson?
Snorkelling is an ideal introduction to this new underwater world. It is inexpensive and a great way to get fit or develop water confidence. Proper training is recommended for youngsters and adults, and can be arranged through BSAC. More on snorkelling courses.
