Join PADI at Anglesey ScubaFest this weekend!


The Anglesey ScubaFest event is taking place this weekend (in North Wales, UK), and PADI is supporting activities with a PADI Pool Party at Holyhead Leisure Centre, along with a PADI Stand at Porth Dafarch beachfront, where PADI staff will be on-hand to answer visitor, diver and PADI Pros’ questions.

PADI Pool Party

PPP-logoThe Anglesey ScubaFest isn’t just about existing aquanauts having all the fun for themselves. Part of the fun is introducing new divers to the sport, helping them see for themselves why it is that we love to “get wet”!

This year, PADI is hosting a Pool Party at the Holyhead Leisure Centre. Tickets were provided on a first-come basis and this exciting event is now sold out.

This is the perfect opportunity for new divers to take their first breath underwater, and experience the weightlessness of inner space in a warm, safe and comfortable environment.

Besides PADI’s Discover programmes – and PADI goodies to take away – the Pool Party also features a get-together upstairs at the centre. PADI Pros will be on-hand to illustrate, explain and answer all your questions as required, helping new and existing divers shape their diving futures.

Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th August, 12-3pm at Holyhead Leisure Centre, Kingsland, Holyhead, Anglesey, LL65 2YE     Telephone: 01407 764111
