At boot 2020, you can now discover new trends such as mermaiding (with a mermaid’s tail), freediving (without any type of technical device) and rebreather diving (using rebreathers) besides “conventional” diving tasters with compressed air cylinders.
At boot Düsseldorf, visitors can take a first test dive at the Dive Center in Hall 12 under the expert guidance of diving associations and equipment suppliers to find out whether diving could perhaps become their new passion.
In addition to watching demonstrations by ambitious divers who have already spent a lot of time in this different world underwater, this is your chance to participate and try it for yourself and gain your first practical experience.
Handling the equipment
Diving requires quite a bit of preparation and equipment. But with some tips and tricks from the experts, entry into the sport is easy. Before taking your first dive, you have to get dressed in suitable diving gear. Taking your time to get acoustomed with the equipment will help a lot with your future dives.
Following a detailed briefing by your experienced diving coach you will go into the diving pool and experience this unique feeling of weightlessness for the first time. There is always a trainer with you to make sure that everything goes smoothly and to calm down his protégé when insecurities should arise. The classic way to communicate underwater, however, is still to use hand signals. When diving for the first at the Dive Center of boot Düsseldorf, you can of course resurface at any time!
Have we sparked your curiosity?
Way too fast, your first "diving taster" will already be over, and hopefully it will have sparked your desire to go diving many more times and to discover something fascinating and new for yourself through diving.
You can search for a free space and make a reservation in the booking calendar. Only one starting place per person is permitted as we want as many people as possible to try our diving tasters. Please read the Terms and Conditions of Participation carefully before you register. When booking slots for children, the specified ages are minimum ages. In the child’s own interest, individual physical and emotional maturity is always decisive. In any case, you must be a good swimmer.
