Souting Discover Scuba Promotion

Scouting Discover Scuba Diving Promotion.

Thanks to PADI, Sussex Diving & Leisure and The Scouting Association experiencing the wonders of the underwater world has never been more accessible.
Instead of the normal £55 we are offering the  scouts this fantastic experience for just £20, yes that’s right £20.
We have found the easiest way to explain the experience is by Q&A so we have listed below the most common questions and their answers.

Who can undertake the experience?

Broadly speaking anybody over the age of 10 who is physically fit and comfortable in the water.  A self-certification medical form will need to be completed when you register with PADI and providing no risk conditions are identified you way to adventure is open.

What do I need to bring?

We provide all the equipment, all you need is your normal swimming costume, a towel and a T shirt to put on under the equipment in the swimming pool.

How long will it take?

Dependant on ability the eLearning takes between 15 and 20 minutes.
During the in-water sessions the poolside briefing takes around 10 minutes followed by 20/30 minutes in the water dependant on the group size.

Where and when will the in-water part be held?

The Pool we use is Havant Leisure Centre, Civic Centre Road, Havant.
We have sessions booked every other Saturday afternoon / evening from 16:30hrs.

We have access to our own swimming pool facilities can you come to us?

YES – With pools closing across the country, time in a pool is at a premium. 
So if you have access to a preferred local swimming pool we are happy to bring the experience to you - you supply the pool and we will supply everything else. We have standard HSE risk assessments, insurance and DBS checks ready to supply to you pool on request.

How do I book?

We would rather take “Troop bookings” as this is easier to administer, however if your troop doesn’t want to make a group booking we wouldn’t want anybody to miss out so watch our shop page for individual places.

Do you have dates already arranged?

We have a regular booking at our pool every other Saturday and with enough notice will be able to move things around to accommodate your group. Although the initial promotion only runs till June we have an undertaking from PADI that as long as the session is booked before the end of the promotion we can conduct the in water session at any time in the future (we currently have one group booked in for September).

Why can’t I use my local PADI Dive Centre?

Only dive centres who have been awarded the converted status of Youth Training Centre are able to take part in this promotion, that is why there are so few listed on the Scouts website.

How Many Scouts can you teach at a time?

For safety and child protection reasons we limit the group size to 2 PADI Professionals to 5 students with a total number of 10 in the water at any one time.
Don’t worry if you have a large group we have done this kind of thing before for Schools where we work in teams to provide 20 experiences in an hour and a half.

How do I pay?

With this experience we have cut costs to the bone so we would prefer payment in cash or bank transfer to avoid card transaction fees.  Due to the high demand payment is in advance at the time of confirming the date / numbers and is non-refundable unless we have 28 days notice.

How do I book or get further information?

Initially we are requesting that Troop Leaders canvas their Scouts to assess approximate numbers  and email us at
