Why dive with Holborn?

So, you think you might want to learn how to SCUBA dive, but you’re not quite sure?

Then why not do a try-dive at our Central London pool and discover if this amazing sport is for you?


Holborn Sub-Aqua Club has been introducing people to SCUBA diving since 1961 and our prime Central London location makes us the ideal choice for those who live or work nearby.

The personal touch

Holborn has always prided itself on teaching SCUBA to a high standard and it is no different when it comes to our try-dive sessions.


Each try-dive is conducted with a fully qualified dive instructor and safety is always our primary concern.

Being a club run by its members (as opposed to a commercial dive centre) we always hope that those we train will continue to dive with us for many years to come.


For this reason we invest a lot of time and effort to make sure we train those people as well as we can – they are our dive buddies of the future!

Come and try diving with us


Just bring yourself

For your try-dive session we will provide all of the equipment you require, you just need to bring yourself, your swimming costume and a towel (and 20p for the locker).


The session will be conducted at your pace and you can do as much, or as little as you like. Arrive at the pool around 19:00 – sessions last around two hours with the actual pool dive usually lasting between 35 minutes to an hour.

Who can do a try dive?

If you are at least 18 years old, able to swim reasonably well and don’t have a medical condition which would endanger you if you dived, you can do a try-dive. But hurry, places are limited.
