Try Dive

The RAID Try Dive program is designed to give you an introduction to SCUBA diving. You will always remember the magic of taking your first breath underwater and that feeling of weightlessness. By either completing the online academics or participating in a presentation given by your RAID Instructor, you will learn essential information to maximize your enjoyment and safety.

Your RAID Try Dive may be conducted in a pool or at an actual dive site, depending on the local conditions. Prior to your dive experience, your RAID Instructor will brief you on the important skills you will learn in the water under the close supervision of your RAID Professional. You will first learn in a controlled confined water experience to get comfortable, then progress to diving with your Instructor in open water.


To become familiar with key pieces of SCUBA equipment and practice some of the essential skills important to all SCUBA divers.
