DISCOVER AN EXCITING NEW WORLD …….. 'try a dive’ with Scapa Scuba!

“A feeling of effortless and weightlessness”, “like travelling through inner space”.

The delight that people feel as they are breathing and moving underwater for the first time is quite possibly the most exciting thing that they have ever experienced.

Trying a dive

Take all these extraordinary and phenomenal feelings – and then add a shipwreck (or two!) into the mix!

The majority of divers will have taken their first underwater breaths in a swimming pool – but not here! Not with Scapa Scuba!! Here in Orkney we offer a unique ‘try dive’ on a historic Blockship Wreck!!!

Scapa Scuba is one of the few places in the UK that you can ‘try a dive’ in the sea - and is the only place you can do it on a Blockship wreck from one of the world wars!
‘Try a dive’ with Scapa Scuba - and experience the thrill of ship wreck diving on your first ever dive!

These ships were sunk between 1915 and 1940 (before the Churchill Barriers were constructed) to protect the British Naval Fleet whilst at anchor in Scapa Flow during WWI and WWII - an incredible and unique opportunity not to be missed!

In summary ...

Scapa Scuba provides a unique experience. The half day ‘try a dive’ is one of our most popular courses and is available to everyone aged 10 and above who is reasonably fit and healthy, with a basic swimming ability. Previous diving experience is not required, making it a perfect family day out!

The dive is run on a one-to-one basis with direct instructor supervision throughout, making the experience personal to you and your needs. The instructor will instil in you an absolute feeling of safety and confidence as you enjoy your introduction to this new underwater world. The session progresses at your pace - you can do as much or as little as you like. The whole experience is simply about having fun, swimming underwater and blowing bubbles around Orkney's unique underwater attractions!
