Where is it? and When?
Our Discover Diving Experience normally takes place in one of two locations*.
On our normal pool night at 2 River Meet Swimming Pool in Christchurch, near Bournemouth in Dorset.
This takes place on a Wednesday evening at 8pm till 11pm. Full size indoor 3m deep swimming municipal swimming pool.
At TAL Scuba Ltd at our indoor heated swimming pool in St. Leonards, near Ringwood, Christchurch and Bournemouth Airport. This can be at any time by arrangement depending on instructor and pool availability. A smaller pool but more intimate and great for smaller groups.
All sessions need to be booked BEFORE the session. This is to make sure we have everything we need for you.

- Such fun!
I was given this session as a gift - and I can't believe how much fun I had - I really was unsure how I would get on as I hate getting my face wet - but the instructor was so patient and the class such a small size I felt really confident - I am going to go again - and would certainly recommend it :)
- Great Fun, Great people
Thanks guys, I had so much fun - Thank You Karen and Rheann
- First breaths underwater - not our last!!
We had a great time tonight with Reanne, she was just as excited as us, and it made the whole thing really fun! The three of us were playing cool underwater games and swimming around for ages! She was really cool at helping Clo clear her mask and it was no trouble to her when I kept forgetting to blow bubbles! - I really recommend these guys they are so cool about the whole thing! The whole session was about two hours and it flew by, In no time we were back in the bar getting our certificates! - really looking forward to the Open water course in April! - Thanks John and Chloe
- Awesome Time
This was amazing thank you! - I was really nervous but Will was really patient and took his time, he didn't rush me and let me do it at my own pace. After doing some skills we were in the deep end in no time and I was doing handstands and all sorts! I really cant wait to do it again! Thank you.
