Try Something New

Just to see if you like it... We're pretty sure you will.


Do you want to know what the fuss is all about? Are you short on time? Then a "try dive" is the option for you. It is an exciting, relaxed and safe introduction to scuba diving, carefully supervised by a PADI Instructor. Starting off in our diving pool, we will teach core competencies and review the safety aspects of diving before you enjoy a dive to 12 metres! Discover Scuba Diving allows you to explore a whole new world and feel the "weightlessness" of flying underwater for the first time- we have no doubt you'll be hooked. Disclaimer – scuba diving is addictive and Blue Marlin Air cannot take responsibility for those try-divers find their newest addiction!
