Our Values & The PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience

  • OCEAN HEALTH: Keep Our Sea Trash Free

    • Every dive we do is a Dive Against Debris. If you take the Ocean Experience, you will see your Instructors and Divemasters pick up every piece of trash they come across, and you can help too!
  • MARINE LIFE: Protect What You Love

    • We will introduce you to the wonders of the underwater world. It's not until you experience life beneath the waves that you really appreciate it in all it's beauty and fragility. We're sure that you will fall in love and want to protect our marine environments as much as we do.
  • PEOPLE AND COMMUNITY: Leading The Way

    • We are a PADI Approved Youth Training Centre which means we are specialists in teaching kids how to scuba dive. We've got equipment specifically for youngsters to keep them comfortable and warm.
    • We remove the barriers that many individuals experience when walking into UK dive centres. There is no macho attitude at The Fifth Point. We're a friendly bunch who will make you feel welcome as soon as you step foot in the door.
  • HEALING AND WELLNESS: Let's Go Diving

    • We help divers achieve their goals.
    • We value all our customers and strive to give the best customer service you've ever experienced

We're A PADI 5* Dive Centre

We are subject to PADI’s quality assurance program. This is a globally acclaimed and fully integrated approach to ensure PADI standards are maintained throughout all elements of all courses. You can rest assured that we go above and beyond the requirements of PADI.

 

Your PADI Discover Scuba Diving session starts with a chilled out safety briefing covering some important information you'll need when you hit the water. We'll show you your equipment and explain how it all works, then we'll customise the fit so you're nice and comfy.

Once you're suited and booted, you'll hit the water with one of our experienced PADI Instructors. You'll take your first underwater breaths on the shallow platform and build up your confidence. You'll learn some fundamental scuba diving skills like clearing your regulator and mask. When you're ready, you'll drop down into deeper water to swim around and have fun!

You must take the Essential Experience before the Ocean or Think Tank Experiences.

This is your opportunity to experience real UK diving. We'll head to a local dive site where our PADI Instructors and Divemasters will take you on a guided tour, pointing out all the awesome marine life the North Sea has to offer. Your dive will last about 30 mins (perhaps longer if you have good air consumption!).

As with all our local dive spots, we are completely at the mercy of the weather. We can only run the Ocean Experience when conditions are favourable - we have your safety and comfort in mind at all times.

You must take the Essential Experience before embarking on the Ocean Experience.

What Scuba Gear Will I Use?

We only use brand new, modern gear at The Fifth Point. In fact, you'll be wearing exactly the same equipment as your Instructor! We've spared no expense to make sure that you've got gear that fits you properly, is comfortable to wear and straight forward to use.
