Swimming Pool Sessions
PADI Speciality of the Month
At Chapeltown Swimming Pool
We will be running this course at either Stoney Cove or Capernwray, and will consist of two dives in one day. During these two dives you learn how to Correctly weight and trim yourself Effortlessly descend and ascend Cause no harm to marine life or organisms. You will gain valuable skills to fine tune your buoyancy and streamlining, this will help to make your dives less taxing and easier, which will have the added advantage of helping to reduce your air consumption, thus increasing your dive times.
As Dive Club members, you can use the pool for only £5 per person, during our pool sessions, using your own kit, or just £15 per person including rental of full kit. So whether you just want to refresh your skills, have a piece of new kit to try out or just having that burning desire to get wet. Call the dive centre to book your place.
