PADI Scuba Courses

Scuba For Scouts

A great way to introduce children to scuba diving in a pool!

From as little as £20!

Scout Diving (8 Years +)

Scuba is fun, simple as that! Compared to many other activities for kids scuba is extremely good value for money.

Our standard cost is £39.99 for a bubble maker course and £29.99 for a discover scuba course.

If you have a group of 10 or more scouts you will receive a discount of £10, bringing the discover scuba down to £20.00!!

The evening explained

Scuba Diving Session

Once the instructors have given the safety briefing and delivered the discover scuba introduction we start the adventure in the shallow end of the pool.

Here the kids will practice a few skills and get familiar with all the scuba diving equipment.

Once the kids are happy with the use of the equipment we provide the option to explore the deep end of the pool and start to experience weightlessness that scuba diving provides.

As part of the session we will introduce a few games such find the pool toys, underwater frisbee and torpedo and practicing buoyancy control by swimming through our underwater hoops.

Why not consider taking scuba to obtain your Water Activities Activity Badge?


Environmental Education 

Once the scuba session is all done a dusted, the kids have showered, changed and warmed up then we sit them down for a 30 minute talk on the issues out beloved oceans are facing.

We discuss how we impact the oceans with everyday life choices, discuss how we can make a difference by implementing small changes in our everyday lives.

We will discuss how the scouts group can get involved and how they can help without going diving, such as beach clean ups and even just changing their choice of toothpaste!

As part of the environmental discussion, we try to cover the top issues we face, time permitting.

  • Plastic in our oceans
  • Ocean dead zones
  • Shark Finning

As you can imagine there are many more issues that we could cover, but we limit this session to 30 minutes so the kids remain engaged as much as possible.

We are more than happy to arrange an evening presentation at your local scouts meeting, just as our staff for details. 

Once the environmental education session has completed we then have our certificate presentation session, every participant gets and certificate for coming along to the DiveStyle session.


We must warn you that Scuba diving is addictive, so don’t be surprised if some of the Scouts want to continue onto the full certification!

As part of the Scout package we do offer discounts on the full open water certification. This then opens ups a huge amount of possibilities, including dive trips in the UK and abroad.

The UK has some amazing dive sites suitable for Scouts of all ages, such as Swanage Pier for amazing marine life, or the Farne Islands to see the seals.

All scout leaders receive free places.

Sessions last around 1 - 2 hours depending on the numbers attending the evening.

The scuba gear you use.

Children use all the basic scuba gear, which is made for their size and stature:

We have jackets specifically designed to fit children.

We use small 7ltr cylinders to allow the child more control during the lesson.

We have child mask and snorkel sets for the duration of the bubble maker.

How long will it take?

Get ready to dive today as this takes just a couple of hours. Once your instructor has briefed your child, we will get them in the water as quickly as possible so they can start the fun. So get ready for your child to have a great scuba diving adventure.

10 Reasons to Learn to Dive

1. Escape to a different world. Scuba diving takes you to a different world with new colours, shapes, textures and creatures – a world where the roles you play – husband, wife, mother, father, friend – take on a new dimension. Become a scuba diver and escape to a peaceful place to renew your energy and excite your senses.

2. Explore new places. Scuba diving frees you to explore the underwater world – from historic shipwrecks and pristine reefs to the mysteries of your local quarry. Become a scuba diver and explore what you’ve been missing.

3. Experience a connection with nature, a feeling of freedom, and a transformation. Diving connects you with nature. It immerses you in new sensations and experiences. It transforms your perception of life forever. Become a diver and transform yourself.

4. Inexpensive compared with getting started in other popular adventure sports and outdoor activities learning to dive isn’t expensive. For example, you can expect to pay about the same as you would for:

  • a full day of surfing lessons
  • a weekend of rock climbing lessons
  • a weekend of kayaking lessons
  • a weekend of fly-fishing lessons
  • about three hours of private golf lessons
  • about three hours of private water skiing lessons
  • one amazing night out at the pub!

5. Great value as learning to dive is a great value when you consider that your PADI diving Instructor is a highly trained and experienced dive professional. Invest in scuba diving lessons and learn something you’ll enjoy the rest of your life. From the first day, diving starts transforming your life with new experiences you share with friends. And, you can do it almost anywhere there is water.

6. Dive anywhere there’s water – from a swimming pool to the ocean and all points in between, including quarries, lakes, rivers and springs. Your dive experience level, site accessibility, conditions and your interests determine where you can dive. For example, if you’ve just finished your PADI Open Water Diver course, you probably won’t be diving under the Antarctic ice on your next dive. But, don’t limit your thinking to dive in the warm, clear water you see in travel magazines. Some of the best diving is closer than you think, and more unusual than you think.

7. Dive Local Diving. Your own back yard has more to offer than you might first think. They may be a ship-wreck, manmade reservoir or a fossil-filled river. It’s not all about great visibility because what you see is more important than how far you see.

8. PADI training is the best system in the world. The only truly important thing about where you dive is that you have the training and experience appropriate for diving there, and that you have a dive buddy to go with you. Your local PADI Dive Centre or Resort can help you organize great local diving or a dive vacation. Visit today to get started.

9. Dive Now! You’ll be diving in less time than you think. Typically, you complete the PADI Open Water Diver course over anywhere from three or four days to six weeks, depending upon how frequently you meet with your dive instructor. PADI diving courses are performance-based, which means your dive instructor is interested in you learning to dive, not in how long you sit in a class. This means that you progress at your own pace – faster or slower depending upon the time you need to become a confident diver who dives regularly.

10. It’s fun! You will find your social life really takes off when you start diving. The contacts you make through this sport can potentially last a lifetime. The fun you have outside of the water can equal the enjoyment you have in it. What have you got to lose?
