Try Dives

The best way to see if you like the sensation of being underwater and want to learn to dive is to come along to a try dive session. We can arrange these most Thursdays and the cost is only £10.  At 7pm you will receive an introduction to scuba kit and at 8pm you will get in the pool with an instructor.  A great value evening out.

Next dates: 5/12/19, 12/12/19

Ocean Diver

Next course starting date is: Thursday 28th January 2020

Ocean Diver is BSAC’s entry-level diving qualification. Ocean Divers are qualified to dive to a depth of 20 metres with another similarly qualified dive buddy. The qualification is recognised worldwide and there is a strong emphasis on safety, and training confident and competent divers. As everyone learns at a different speed the course is designed so that you can progress at your own pace.

Pool and Theory

The theory and pool sessions are run over 7 weeks on Thursdays from 7 – 9.30pm. Theory starts at 7pm and covers key topics such as diving equipment, physiology, planning and dealing with problems. At 7.50pm we kit up and from 8 – 9.30pm we train in the pool.

The total cost of Ocean Diver Pool & Theory is £201.50, this breaks down as course costs £59 + training materials and qualification book £40 + BSAC membership £57.50 + 3 months of Clidive membership £45 =£201.50.

Open water qualifying dives

To qualify as an Ocean Diver, you also need to successfully complete four open water dives. Clidive provides plenty of opportunities for you to do this, either in the UK or abroad. We can also refer you to a BSAC school if you want to complete the training on your own holiday.

The cost of the open water training will vary depending on the location. A popular way to qualify is a two day UK based trip to Weymouth or Plymouth, which usually costs around £200 including overnight accommodation. Travel costs will be extra and are variable depending on your preferred mode of transport. We also do training trips abroad in Gozo and the Canary Islands.
