Want to learn to scuba dive?
No problem, at C-Divers, our diving instructors will teach you…
No matter what your motivation is, whether you’ve been inspired by the adventures of divers on TV, or you enjoyed a ‘try dive’ on holiday, once you take the plunge, you’ll quickly find that learning to dive with C-Divers can transform your life by opening up a whole new world of adventure and discovery – and you’ll meet a nice bunch of people too!
Your introduction to C-Divers and scuba diving will start with a short, informative talk. Then, before your pool training (remember to bring your swimwear), you will fill-in a self-assessment health form, followed by the opportunity to get wet in the pool.
First, you’ll be offered a short Try Dive in shallow water with one of our instructors. This will give you the opportunity right away to see what it’s like wearing a mask, scuba gear and breathing from a regulator. Most people love this new found freedom of being able to breathe underwater.
Next, if you’re happy to continue, you’ll undergo a simple swimming assessment. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be an olympic athlete, just comfortable and confident in the water and able to perform some straightforward tasks. We’ve never known anyone to fail.
At our club sessions on Wednesday evenings, week-by-week you’ll learn a little theory in the first half, followed by some pool training in the second half, where you’ll develop your in-water skills, steadily building on what you’ve achieved before. Your pool training will include learning to swim with a mask, snorkel and fins, before progressing on to using scuba equipment.
You will probably find you’ve never had such fun when learning something new, and the feeling of achievement is exhilarating.
Take your time to wander through this website; there’s a lot to see and learn, but don’t feel overwhelmed by any of the technical stuff. At C-Divers the emphasis is on having fun and being safe, and you’ll soon pick-up what’s important for whatever stage you’re at, besides you’ll have a club full of new friends to help you, as well as qualified instructors.
