The first step for anyone looking to get into Scuba Diving is to try it! Here at the Oxford Dive Centre we offer a Try Dive experience for anyone who wants to give Scuba Diving a go. Led by one of our qualified staff you will first spend a short amount of time at the Dive Centre watching a DVD, and being shown how the equipment works. We then head to the pool for a minimum of an hour in the water, using the Scuba equipment and getting used to the unique experience of breathing underwater!
8 years of age or older
Must be able to stand in 1 metre of water
Must be able to swim unaided
Provide your own swimming gear and a towel (all equipment hire is included)
What can I expect?
From the introductory DVD, through the explanation of the equipment to taking your first breath underwater, our aim is to make you experience as enjoyable as possible. Typically you will spend an hour in the water with a short briefing on the side of the pool beforehand to re-cap what we have previously covered at the Dive Centre.
How much will it cost and what do I need to bring?
The oxford Dive Centre Try Dive experience costs £50, and all you need to bring is your enthusiasm and your swimming gear. It is also recommended that you bring an old T-shirt to wear over your swimming gear.
