Try scuba diving for just £25.00, or do a refresher dive for just £75.00, Wednesday evenings at the Oasis Sport Centre in Central London – Book Now

So, you think you might want to learn how to scuba dive, but you’re not quite sure? Then why not do a try-dive at our central London pool and discover if this amazing sport is for you?

Holborn Sub-Aqua Club has been introducing people to scuba diving for over 50 years and our prime location (we are based at the Oasis Sport Centre near Covent Garden) makes us the ideal choice for those who live or work nearby.

The personal touch
Holborn has always prided itself on teaching scuba to a high standard and it is no different when it comes to our try-dive sessions. Each try-dive is conducted one-to-one with a fully qualified instructor and safety is always our uppermost concern.

Being a club, as opposed to a commercial dive centre, we always hope that those we train will continue to dive with us for many years to come. For this reason we invest a lot of time and effort to make sure we train those people as well as we can – they are our dive buddies of the future!

Just bring yourself…
For your try-dive session we will provide all of the equipment you require, you just need to bring yourself, your swimming costume and a towel (and 20p for the locker). The session will be conducted at your pace and you can do as much, or as little as you like. Sessions start around 6:45pm and last around two hours with the actual pool dive usually lasting between 35 minutes to an hour.

Refresher dives
Perhaps you are already a qualified diver but it has been a while since you last dived? Maybe you are off on holiday and you want to brush up your skills before you go? Holborn offers refresher dive sessions for qualified divers, for just £75.00, most Wednesdays. During these sessions you will be one-to-one with a qualified instructor (or one-to-two if you prefer) and will cover all of the basic diving skills from the Ocean Diver course (equivalent to PADI OW/AOW). At the end of the session you will receive an internationally-recognised certificate. If you are interested in a refresher dive, please contact us.
