Try Scuba Diving Overview

Try Scuba Diving (10 year-olds +)

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving but aren’t quite ready to complete a certification course, this experience is for you.

You will be instructed by one of our highly experienced, professional & patient diving instructors in a comfortable & learning-centred environment.

Flying after diving: because of the reduction in atmospheric pressure when going to altitude, you will need to wait 12 hours after your dive before flying.

To try scuba diving, you must be at least 10 years old. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but you need to be in reasonable physical health.

The total experience time, from arrival to departure will take 3 – 4 hours. You will spend 60 minutes in the water. 

All required dive equipment for your experience is supplied by ABC Diving. 

The total, fully inclusive cost of this diving experience start at €80.00 with out ‘Standard’ option. Our ‘Bespoke’ option is €190.00 (for those who go on to complete their PADI Scuba Diver Course or PADI Open Water Diver Course with ABC Diving within 12 months, this amount will be deducted from the course cost).

This includes:

– All dive equipment needed for the completion of your experience

– Educational materials

Swimwear for the dive and a towel for afterwards.

When you try scuba diving, you learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of one of our diving professionals.

  • Go over the scuba equipment you use to dive and how easy it is to move around underwater with your gear.

What about sharks?

Although sharks do inhabit the Mediterranean Sea, they are extremely rare to see while scuba diving. In fact, only a few divers have ever seen a shark while diving in Malta. Many divers have completed thousands of dives here and have not been lucky enough to see a shark. If you become one of those lucky divers, enjoy the extremely rare sight as the shark passes on by.

My ears hurt when I go to the bottom of a swimming pool or when I dive down snorkelling. Will I still be able to try scuba diving?

Yes. Assuming you have no irregularities in your ears and sinuses. The discomfort is the normal effect of water pressure pressing in on your ear drums. Fortunately, our bodies are designed to adjust for pressure changes in our ears – we will show you how to equalise during your experience.

Do I have to be a good swimmer to try scuba diveing?

Some swimming ability is required. You need to have basic swim skills and be able to comfortably maintain yourself in the water. 

Do women have any special concerns regarding diving?

Aside from pregnancy, no. Because physiologists know little about the effects of diving on the fetus, the recommendation is that women avoid diving while pregnant or trying to become pregnant. Menstruation is not normally a concern.

What if I feel claustrophobic?

People find the “weightlessness” of scuba diving to be quite freeing. During your try scuba diving experience, your instructor gives you plenty of time and coaching to become comfortable with each stage of learning.

What happens if I use up all my air?

Your dive kit includes a gauge that displays how much air you have. You’ll learn to check it and your instructor will also be regularly checking your remaining air throughout your experience. 

Can you go diving with no experience?

Yes, you can go diving without being certified. This introductory course is a great way to get your feet wet with scuba before you commit to a full diving certification.
