Key Details

The adventure begins with a brief orientation session, where we introduce the fundamentals of diving safety and basic skills.

Afterwards, it’s pool time! Kids will don their mini scuba gear and participate in an exciting in-water session, practicing fundamental skills and playing educational games that boost underwater confidence.

We’re conveniently located near London and other neighboring towns like Basingstoke, Newbury, and Winchester—just 5 minutes from the M3. We will send you the full address and postcode upon booking.
