Discover Scuba Diving

January 22 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


Have you tried scuba diving? You can have a one-hour taster session with us to see if you would like it. The sessions are organised by the Octopus Explorer Unit and uses the professional JC Scuba Dive School instructors to deliver the session. These sessions are open to Scouts and Explorers (and if there are any unfilled spaces left over, we can take Network and other Adults). For Scouts the session has the added advantage of delivering the Water Sports Activities Badge. If you like it Octopus can take you on to become a qualified scuba diver.

Usually the January session is based in Lydney but current pool hire costs are twice those we can get in Gloucester and given the additional  travel costs of the instructor team it is uneconomic for them to go to the Forest. We’re sorry about that, but if costs come down at Lydney perhaps we can go back there next year.
