Try SCUBA diving with our £25 ‘Try-Dive’ taster session

A Try-Dive can help you save time and money by finding out in advance if you like diving. Costing just £25, first-timers can experience the thrill of breathing underwater for the first time! Please note, minimum age is 12 years old.

A typical Try Dive session, lasting about 45 minutes, involves poolside tuition on diving techniques and equipment, followed by a SCUBA dive in our pool with a BSAC-qualified instructor. We can run Try-Dives most Monday evenings at Dearneside Leisure Centre – all you will need is a swimming costume or shorts, and a T-shirt to wear in the water. We’ll provide the rest!

Your Instructor will run you through a few basic safety procedures along with a brief explanation of your SCUBA equipment. Once you are comfortable and happy, we can try swimming underwater and allow you to experience the weightless underwater environment. If you are confident enough and, more importantly, you want to, we will teach you some more basic skills such as barrel rolls and somersaults!


If Mondays are not convenient for you, then our sister clubs Barnsley BSAC Divers and Doncaster Sub Aqua Club offer sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

Or why not try a Snorkelling lesson?

Snorkelling is an ideal introduction to this new underwater world. It is inexpensive and a perfect way to get fit. Proper training is recommended for youngsters and adults, and can be arranged through us. To find out more about snorkelling with Dearne Valley Divers please contact us.
