Has Blue Planet II inspired you to explore the Underwater World?
Booked a Blue Water holiday and want to maximise what you see?


The underwater environment is exciting with opportunities to encounter wonderful and in many ways strange marine life. 

We offer three types of Experience ('Taster') sessions so you can start to explore the underwater world for yourself!

  • SSI Try Scuba (with an option to progress to SSI Basic Diver);
  • SSI Try Freediving;
  • SSI Try Snorkelling; this is also suitable as a Lesson if you want to Learn to Snorkel before a holiday.
Each session costs just £40 per person based on two people sharing the experience (including equipment hire) and are usually available
  • Wednesday evenings 18:45-20:00
  • Saturday morning 08:30-09:45
  • Saturday afternoon 16:00-17:15

The session starts with a Health and Safety briefing, an introduction to the equipment you will use and a Briefing on the session's activities. Then you get in the water under the guidance of one of our experienced SSI professionals. Once you are comfortable we will show you one or two simple skills and then over to you to have fun in a safe environment. These Experience sessions are open to anyone age 8 (age 12 for Freediving) and over on completion of a medical statement. 

Each session is tailored to your safety and comfort - we want you to enjoy your time in the water; please let us know beforehand if you have a particular concern or just feel nervous about being in the water - our SSI Dive Professionals have conducted hundred's of Experiences so there is very little we haven't already seen!

As part of each Experience you gain access to the relevant free SSI Digital Learning materials to help prepare you to get the most from your session; afterwards you receive a Free Digital Recognition card and details of opportunities to further explore the underwater world..
