2DiVE4 Scuba School

Scuba Diving


Ideal if you live in Cambridge, Essex or Hertfordshire

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, a Discover Scuba Diving session with 2DiVE4 will let you try scuba to see if you like it.

While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

The Fun Part

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to. After all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realise how easy scuba diving really is.

The biggest challenge diving instructors have with Try Dives is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!

2DiVE4 can take complimentary photos of the session and with permission of the participants (or parents), post them on our 2DiVE4 Scuba School Facebook Page for you to view. Pictures are the property of 2DiVE4, but your own pictures can be copied on request to steve@2dive4.co.uk

For divers/parents not wishing participate in photos being shared on 2DiVE4 social media please let us know in advance and we can identify and segregate those particular participants.
