Try Dives and Training for Beginners
Calshot Sub-Aqua Club offers the entire range of BSAC diver training from total beginner to Advanced Diver. Initial training requires a number of lectures and pool session before progressing to open water (ie, in the Sea!)
Before all of this though, you'll want to see if you like it - therefore we organise regular 'Try Dive' sessions where a qualified instructor will take you in the pool with scuba gear to let you get a feel for what it's like. It's safe, exciting and great fun!
Try Dive sessions start at 7:30pm with a short presentation about our club, including our affiliation to BSAC (the British Sub-Aqua Club), the training we offer and the diving we do both in the UK and abroad. You'll then get in the pool for a short swim test (just a few lengths and a duck dive to retrieve an object from the deep end) followed by a quick snorkelling lesson, after which we get you into scuba gear and you'll experience what it's like to breathe underwater for the first time!
Try Dive sessions cost £15 per person and are normally run at Hounsdown School (SO40 9FT) near Totton.
All you need to bring on the night is a towel, swimming attire, and an old T-shirt to help keep you a bit warmer in the pool. If you do have any snorkel or diving kit, feel free to bring it along.
