SO HOW MUCH £££ TO START DIVING?

Club Monthly Fee - £15 which includes training, use of club kit, air fills, local diving Arlesey Blue Lagoon and use of Stevenage Swimming Centre. 

 

SCUBA Equipment - As a club, we provide all SCUBA equipment for training except drysuits or wetsuits. For open water you will need to provide a thick wet suit at the very least, but preferably a drysuit.

 

A drysuit is a very worthwhile first investment in dive kit due to the cold UK waters. As part of your training, we will teach you how to dive in a drysuit at no extra cost.

 

Also we recommend purchasing your own dive mask as the club masks may not always fit correctly - different people have different face shapes and sizes

We are always happy to provide advice for any kit investments
