Learn how to breathe underwater and become weightless in a pool
Brilliant fun - and maybe you'll get the scuba diving bug!
Imagine what it's like to be able to breathe underwater and be completely weightless. Learn all about the amazing world of scuba diving, and take an initial step (or splash) towards becoming a scuba diver. Before being kitted out in full scuba gear, an expert teacher explains dive safety and how to get mobile underwater. Once in the swimming pool, get used to all the equipment and learn how to breathe underwater to achieve weightlessness - it's brilliant fun. There is an instructor around the whole time to offer expert guidance and make sure you stay safe.
For children aged 8 up to 12 or 14 who are fit and healthy and beginners are welcome. Sufferers from asthma, diabetes, claustrophobia or any respiratory, heart or other medical conditions need written medical approval from their doctor in advance.
The experience lasts for one and a half to two hours, depending on the standard of pupils. Spend around half an hour in the pool.
