Learn how to breathe underwater and become weightless
Brilliant fun - you may get the scuba diving bug!
Find out what it's really like to breathe underwater. Learn all about the aquatic world of scuba diving with tuition from an experienced instructor, getting to grips with scuba equipment, water safety and underwater breathing methods. Begin with a briefing on safety and underwater mobility before being issued with full scuba gear. After being fully kitted out, jump into the pool to submerge, putting your diving skills to the test with an instructor on hand at all times to provide safety in addition to offering helpful hints and guidance.
Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday dates throughout the year. Book at least two weeks in advance.
This is for children aged 8 to 14 who are fit and healthy. Beginners welcome. Sufferers from asthma, diabetes, claustrophobia or any respiratory, heart or other medical conditions need written medical approval from their doctor in advance.
