Sports Dry Dive
The 40 metre dry dive course comprises a short presentation on the work carried out at the Recompression Unit. Diving safety, decompression illness and basic management of a patient suffering from Decompression Illness (DCI). You will be briefed on the safety aspects of the Recompression Chamber and introduced to the chamber environment where you can, under close observation, observe the effects of nitrogen narcosis.
Qualifications and fitness
The minimum number of persons for a dry dive is 10. You must possess a self-certification and be able to provide evidence on the day that you are medically fit to dive. We also require proof of a diver qualification. Note that non divers will not be allowed in the chamber. Age minimum is 16 and the facility is available at weekends only.The cost is £35.00 which includes the presentation and tour of the facility and the dry dive to 40m. You can bring your dive computers along and your log books can be stamped with the centres logo. These guys do fantastic job and give a great insight into the hyperbaric medicine world. Let’s hope you never have to see the chamber for real but at least you will know where the front door is if you ever need them.
