Scuba diving in Llanberis
A message from Vivian dive centre that members may be interested in…
Dear Wrexham Scouts,
I own Vivian dive centre which is located in Llanberis we are in the process of speaking with scout groups to enquire if they would be interested in offering an introduction into scuba diving as an activity.
Vivian dive centre can offer a PADI discover scuba diving experience. The programme lasts for between 2-3 hours and can be taught to anyone aged 10 and above. The entire experience is conducted in Vivian quarry making it a lot more exciting than using a swimming pool. The experience will begin with a group safety briefing, we will then take 4 participants in the water at a time. The experience will begin in our purpose built training cage in standing depth water, once the students and staff are happy we will then take the group underwater and down to the deeper part of the cage to a depth of 3 meters here the staff will ensure that students are comfortable underwater before taking the divers out into the quarry for a dive to a maximum depth of 6 meters.
Vivian dive centre has full public liability Insurance cover. All the staff at Vivian dive centre are DBS checked, site risk assessments are available on request. Due to teaching ratios the in water work will be 2 students to 1 instructor. Should there be a larger group of cadets completing the experience The instructors will brief the entire group at once then take the divers in groups of 4. Due to the colder water conditions Vivian dive centre recommended that the discover scuba diving is not conducted until May or June.
The price of the programme is usually £45.00 however we are offering it to groups at a discounted price of £38.00. This is fully inclusive of all equipment instruction and entrance to Vivian quarry. If you would like to discuss the above in more detail with myself then please don’t hesitate to contact me.
