Welcome to Havelock Divers. We’re very glad that you’ve chosen us for your diving program and we’re sure you will have a fantastic time diving with us. The Try Scuba & Basic Diver program is designed to allow beginners and even non-swimmers to experience the thrill of scuba diving in a fun and safe environment. The program is not a training/certification course, but aims to give you a taste of being underwater which will hopefully leave you craving for more.

The Try Scuba & Basic Diver program we offer is associated with the globally recognised training agency – SSI (Scuba Schools International) and at the end of the successful completion of your program, your dive will be registered on the SSI database.

The program is conducted on a one-on-one basis for maximum fun and safety. You will first get briefed on what you need to do and what to expect from the day’s activities. After completing some simple paperwork you will watch a short video with instructions. This will be followed by a skill training session in waist deep water, getting comfortable with the equipment and learning basic problem solving skills. Once you’re ready to proceed, we head out for a dive. The maximum allowable depth is 12 metres, but this isn’t a target and there is plenty to see at any depth. The depth you achieve will depend on your comfort level and this is something our dive professionals will decide. The dive will last between forty to sixty minutes, but we have to disclaim that heavy breathing could lead to shorter dives. We will take photos and videos during your dive which we will share with you at no extra cost. All we need from you is your smart phone or a memory card/stick.
