A Try Dive can help you save time and money by finding out in advance if you like diving.

What our Try Divers say ★★★★★
The team at BSAC helped me find my local club for a ‘try dive’ session and I had a really good experience. The members of the club are indeed very friendly and welcoming. Alan, the club contact, has been quick to respond to any emails and was a patient and encouraging instructor. Altogether it was an enjoyable evening.
– Lynn, happy Try Diver at Harlow Sub Aqua club.
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.
