The easiest way to find out if you’ll enjoy scuba diving is to attend a try dive sessions with The Scuba Trust. The dive will be conducted at your pace and it’s your opportunity to discover how much fun and therapeutic scuba diving can be.
Our try dive sessions offer a friendly relaxed introduction to the underwater world in a heated swimming pool environment. Your dive will be conducted by one of our very experienced teaching professionals. Try dives take place once a month at a modern heated pool facility with easy access to the changing rooms and pool side. Getting in and out of the pool is made easy by our hoist if needed.
Before you get wet, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss the session with your “Dive Buddy” who is a very experienced scuba teaching professional. We can discuss your personal goals and any requirements, prepare your equipment and customise the session to suit your own needs.
A Try Dive Medical form must be completed before each and every dive.
Dates are variable. Please contact us at on 08445 610677 to arrange
All you need to bring is your normal swimming gear and a towel. All other equipment is provided. If you need any assistance in getting changed please bring along someone who can help you as The Scuba Trust is unable to help with personal care.
About The Scuba Trust
Helping those with disabilities – and their friends – experience the joy and freedom of scuba diving.
The Scuba Trust was founded in 1996 by Brenda Carey, Leon Golding and Rikki Singh. Its initial aims were to act as a focal point for the organisation of scuba diving holidays abroad for people with disabilities. It has now grown into one of the UK’s leading dive organisations to help individuals with disabilities (and their friends) learn to scuba dive.
The aim of the Trust is to provide a level playing field by arranging training and obtaining funding to subsidise applicants who, due to disability, encounter difficulty in finding suitable instruction and who may face a greater outlay for training and recreational diving after certification. The number of ‘Friends of the Scuba Trust’ currently stands at 285. The Scuba Trust relies on donations to ensure we can continue our work of levelling the playing field to enable our disabled friends to learn to snorkel and scuba dive.
