What happens on the day?
During your lesson you’ll both familiarise yourselves with the scuba equipment and learn basic safety, as well as manoeuvres under the water, breathing skills, and other mobility techniques to get the most control of direction and force under the water without excessive exertion. The unusual feeling of weightlessness adds an element of surrealism to it all, but you’re in good hands with your trained PADI instructor.
This experience for two begins with a poolside briefing. This goes over the basic principles of scuba diving and the safety aspects involved. You will discuss what you hope to achieve from the lesson and any other queries. Then you’ll both be kitted out and it’s into the water to learn how to manage the equipment. All scuba gear is provided and all you will need is a swimming costume and a towel.
