ABOUT THIS SESSION

Midweek evening safety training session at a 5m deep heated dive pool. This will give you the opportunity to practice things that you may haven’t done since your open water course. This includes things such as deploying a safety sausage, buddy breathing, remove and replace scuba units on the surface and at depth, blue water safety stops, flooded mask clearing or anything you specifically would like to practice within a controlled environment and under the guidance of a Scuba Instructor. This would also be a great opportunity to test any new equipment you may recently purchased or to simply catch up for a beer afterwards. 

Note: this is not a refresher course! If you are rusty in general, we need to schedule a different session for you. You should have recent diving experience and feel confident to dive in general.
