You’ll be met in Portstewart at the start of your three hour session by a qualified guide who will provide you with all the equipment needed for your dive. The three hour session will include a safety briefing and instruction from a fully qualified PADI instructor.
The session lasts approximately 3 hours and normally takes place in the Portstewart area. We will first meet in the dive centre in Portstewart where you will be fitted out with diving equipment and complete any paperwork. We will then go to the dive site in Portstewart where staff will brief you on the dive and skills you will be doing. After getting on the dive equipment you will be led to the waters edge – where the adventure really begins! We will then gently lead you into the water to waist depth and get you nice and relaxed with some simple skills. Once comfortable you will be taken by an instructor on a proper dive and experience all the thrills of being underwater.
