Updated: Jun 10
I'm getting all fired up for Waterfest on Sunday12th June and keeping everything crossed for some sun and no wind! Clearly we'll be at the merci of the weather but hay it's Scotland so I'm sure it'll be awesome!
On the day I'll be offering the opportunity to experience Scuba Diving or Snorkelling off Lamlash Pier. As the day is all about trying something new I've slashed the price from £90 to JUST £15 for 3 lucky people. You wont get this price again so if you want to try scuba diving, today is your lucky day!! You must book this in advance of the day so drop me a message ASAP and when these 3 slots are full then this incredible offer will be gone...
If you don't fancy scuba diving then I'll also be on hand to help you try Snorkelling (sometimes called Skin Diving) between my Discover Scuba Diving sessions. I've popped some key details for you to check out below:
PADI Discover Scuba Diving - £15 (Normally £90!) *3 PLACES - BOOK NOW*
If you plan to be at Waterfest and want to experience breathing underwater, try scuba diving or aren't quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course then the PADI Discover Scuba Diving is for you! As a local independent provider committed to getting more people into our incredible waters we're taking the hit on cost and offering this experience for JUST £15. Honestly no where offers this experience for this insane amount of money. Unlike my full Discover Scuba Diving experience which costs £90 there won't be a mini open water dive but you'll still do the theory, skills and have the change to actually dive under the water on a condensed version of our 2 hour session. At Waterfest this experience will last about 45 minutes; actual in-water time will vary and we'll be staying in confined open water which will be between 1-2m deep.
We'll complete a small guide book together, talk some theory, learn some skills and then put these into practice in the water where you'll discover just how awesome Scuba Diving really is! At the end you'll get a certificate to show to your friends/family and prove that you really are a proper explorer!
Age: You must be over 15 years of age to join this session
Health & Fitness: You need to be medically fit to dive and there are some conditions that may mean you can't Scuba Dive. Please check out the Medical Form by clicking here before hand. If you answer yes to any of these questions then you'll need a doctors signature.
Equipment: You must have your own wetsuit and wetsuit shoes/boots - these are available to hire on the day from the club if you are taking part in the other events. We will not provide exposure protection for this session. All other scuba equipment will be provided.
While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
Exclusions: this offer is only open to new divers who do not hold any current diving certification from any training organisation. If you feel a bit rusty and want to refresh your skills and knowledge then the PADI ReActivate is the course for you.
PADI Skin Diver (Snorkelling) - FREE *LIMITED PLACES*
If you're not able to try Scuba Diving then I'll also be on hand to help you with some of the Snorkelling basics. It's a great way to experience life under the waves without all the gear.
Come on over and have a chat if you want to try this and if I'm not doing a Discover Scuba Dive session then we'll hit the water!
Age: Over 8 years old

Equipment: You must have your own wetsuit and wetsuit shoes/boots - these are available to hire on the day from the club if you are taking part in the other events. We will not provide exposure protection for this session. All other snorkelling equipment will be provided.
