Try Dive

Get to breathe underwater and see the beauty of the underwater world after with an instructor to oversee you all of the way.


Have an instructor show you how to stay safe with scuba gear before he leads you around the underwater world to see the marvels of the Red Sea on a simple try dive.

What happens?

You have the option of doing a half day or a full day. You start with a medical questionnaire and a little paperwork before we issue equipment for your size. You have a talk with an instructor to prepare you for the try dive by explaining a little about the equipment, some hand signals and what you might be asked to do while underwater on your try dive.


This is purely about the experience and does not come with a qualification at the end. A try dive is sheer fun and that is its own reward.

Next Step

You can continue straight into the PADI Open Water course, if you have the time. In just an additional day and a half you could be ready to be certified as a PADI Scuba Diver.

Typical Day

Try dive with instructor

Day One Try Dive

After a little paperwork, we will issue you equipment and give you a briefing about the wearing of the equipment and what it does. We talk a little about breathing underwater, what you will need to do on the try dive and what the instructor will be doing. You'll learn hand singles so you can "talk" underwater. Then you go into the water and kneel in the shallow and get used to the strange sensation of having water all around you but still being able to breathe. You can try a few skills and then go for a swim with the instructor to help you. On the try dive you can take as much control as you are comfortable with.

By the end of the try dive you will have enjoyed the experience of using scuba gear and be ready to give a PADI course a go.
