If you're interested in diving for the first time then a try dive is for you. Firstly you'll get an an introduction to SCUBA diving and what you can expect when you enter the water. Then we'll introduce you to all the equipment and get you into the pool. You can begin to get a feel for the basic equipment and skills, we'll give you plenty of time to enjoy the feelings of weightlessness and breathing underwater, before leaving the pool and talking over your experience. You'll finish the try-dive with a certificate and a BSAC information pack.
We meet on Friday nights at The Duston School pool during term-time (September to June). If you are interested in developing your skills as an Ocean Diver(the first BSAC qualification) you must complete a programme of training in the classroom and pool before progressing to open water. We'll make sure you have all the basic skills to dive to a maximum depth of 20 metres with a "buddy" in British open-water conditions. After Ocean Diver there are many other opportunities to advance your dive skills, progressing to Sports Diver and Dive Leader and to develop first aid and boat handling qualifications.
British Timken Members organise dive trips to a variety of locations around the UK and further afield. Recent destinations have included Scapa Flow, Norway and Swanage
