Try Scuba

by SSI
Type: Training

The SSI Try Scuba entry-level program allows you to experience the underwater world in a confined water setting. You will earn the SSI Try Scuba recognition rating.

  • Minimum Age: 8
  • Certification Prerequisites: None
  • Academic Sessions: Online training
  • Pool/Confined Water Sessions: 1
  • Maximum Training Depth: 5 meters / 15 feet 
  • Duration: 1.5 Hours

The session will start with a 15 to 20-minute briefing from one of our experienced instructors, then a rundown of how the equipment works. Next, you and your instructor will select a mask and fins before being fitted into your high-quality total diving system. Learning to breathe with your face in the water and fin on the surface quickly turns into an hour of fun underwater, playing games and learning new skills. 

We have a maximum ratio of 2:1 with instructors to ensure you have the best possible experience.

After a full debriefing and discussion about taking your scuba to the next level, every student is issued a certificate of completion and a digital recognition rating (via MySSI App). Photos of each session will be uploaded to the Divemaster Scuba Facebook 

We currently have a 2 for 1 special offer, where you can bring a friend along for free!
