The underwater world offers a plethora of diver experiences from diving with the seals at Lundy or the Farne Islands or visiting the underwater graveyard of the German High Seas Fleet from WWI as scuttled in Scapa Flow in 1919. With over 40,000 shipwrecks to research, your exploration can start right here at DiveLife Manchester.

Try Dive

This introduction is designed to exhibit the technology and ease of Open Circuit diving, in a pool or in a confined water environment with pool-like conditions. To be conducted by one of our Instructors or Divemasters, your introduction will be in a low-stress environment. After determining you have basic swimming skills, your instructor will demonstrate the required skills for you to swim underwater, whilst breathing on open circuit scuba. This is not a certification programme. However you can follow on and start your Scuba Diver or Open Water 20 course.
