Family Scuba Diving
People really like this Experience located handily in Ipswich, Suffolk.
Become submerged in the aquatic world of scuba diving with the family. After a briefing and being fully equipped with all the scuba essentials, hit the pool to learn fundamental diving techniques and get acquainted with the principles of underwater mobility. Scuba diving is great fun and everyone comes away with a satisfying new skill. This experience is also ideal for anyone thinking of taking a PADI Open Water Diving Course. To conclude, younger children (less than 10 years of age) get a surprise gift to take home as a reminder of this incredible experience.
