​​There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time! It takes a little time getting used to it, but after a few minutes of breathing through a regulator most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Try Scuba Diving is not getting participants into the water, but getting them out when the program is over. Try this course and you will tell us and your friends back home: This was the best part of my holiday!
