Try Scuba Diving

The first time you breathe underwater is an experience to remember – and you will be surprised by just how much fun it is.

A Try Dive is a scuba diving taster session and can help you save time and money by finding out in advance if you like diving. Our Try Dive sessions last one hour and involve brief poolside tuition on diving techniques and equipment, followed by a scuba dive in our pool with a BSAC-qualified instructor to make sure you get maximum enjoyment from your first scuba dive. We hold these sessions on Thursday nights at the Pool in the Park at 9pm.

It’s easy to try scuba diving with Surrey Aquanauts. Just send us your name and contact details via our contact form below or email us on and one of our club members will contact you to arrange your Try Dive.


Who can do a Try Dive?

There is no lower age limit for try dives. Before your Try Dive you will be asked to read and complete a medical form, please download now to take a look at the Try Dive medical and responsibility declaration. If you are under 18 you will need a parent/guardian to sign this declaration form.

How much does it cost?

Our Try Dives are £20 for adults and £15 for under 18s. If you decide to join our club and sign up to our Ocean Diver course your Try Dive fee will be deducted from the cost of your course.

What do I need to bring?

Just your swimmers, a towel and an old T-shirt that you don’t mind getting wet. We’ll provide everything else.

When can I do a Try Dive?

We hold our pool sessions on Thursday evenings at 9pm at the Pool in the Park, Woking, so as long as we can arrange an instructor for you, we can book you in on a date to suit you.
