Sub Aqua

Who are we?
Leicestershire Sub Aqua Unit offers affordable scuba diving & snorkelling to all members of the Scout & Guide Associations.
We meet between 8-10pm on Thursdays in Lutterworth, Leicestershire. All of our instructors are nationally qualified by the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) for scuba and snorkelling and, as members of the scouting movement, all our adult members are fully DBS checked.

What we do?

Scuba Try Dives

A try dive is the best way to find out what it is like to scuba dive. A Try Dive is completed in one evening.
We start in the classroom for about an hour looking at the equipment and diving techniques.
A pool session follows, also an hour, where you get the opportunity to scuba dive in the 3m deep pool
with our qualified instructors who will help you get maximum fun and enjoyment from your first scuba dive. 4-6 people is the ideal number for a Try Dive session however it is possible to cover larger groups please get in touch for further information.

Experience Snorkelling:

This is the ideal taster ‘Try Snorkelling’ session’. Experience snorkelling is designed to be fun yet at the same time building in water confidence.
We start in the classroom looking at the snorkelling equipment and how to use it. A pool session follows with in water guidance on how to use the equipment from qualified instructors, and usually ends with some in water games using fins masks and snorkels.
