Try scuba diving: discover a new world underwater

So, you’re interested in trying scuba diving? You’ve come to the right place!

Your first try dive with East Cornwall Divers is an experience you’ll never forget, and the perfect way to find out if you’ll enjoy diving before you sign up to a full course such as BSAC Ocean Diver. Try dives are a great fun – even more so if you bring your friends and family to have a go too!

Firstly, you’ll be met by our friendly members who will give you your registration pack, including a free DVD all about diving in the UK. You’ll be taken through to the pool and shown around, and introduced to your fully qualified instructors who are responsible for keeping you safe and making sure you have fun during your try dive.

Next you’ll be shown the kit you’ll be using, and introduced to some basic underwater signals. Then it’s a quick swim to warm up, then your try dive experience begins!

You’ll have at least 25 minutes underwater with your instructor, often longer, and if you’ve opted to allow us to take photos we’ll get as many pictures of you underwater as possible to send to you after your dive.

Once your try dive comes to an end, we’ll take you for a drink and a chat with the club members to discuss your experience and what the club does. We’re a members club – not a dive shop – so there’s no ‘hard sell’ – but we’ll explain what your options are to continue your training and become a fully qualified diver!

You’ll be presented with your try-dive pack and certificate, and invited to join us at any future club social evening.
