We welcome all new and existing divers to our club.  Whether you are new to diving or have completed a few dives on holiday or existing diver from BSAC and other diving agencies (PADI), we can offer you appropriate training and club diving experience. 
 

We offer all BSAC internationally recognised qualifications.  Each qualification builds upon previous skills learnt and experieced gained by diving with our club. Our qualified BSAC instructors provide One-2-One training at our pool and qualify you at local quarries and sea dives to complete your qualification. 

 

The training is done at your pace and ensures you have gained the skill before moving on to the next lesson.  Once you have completed each course, we take you on club trips to dive with various instructors and experienced club divers to practice your skills and learn to cope with different diving conditions before moving forward

Each BSAC course repeats and expands on previous course kills to qualify you for deeper diving, varied experiences, safety and rescue skills.  

Finally, we hope you dive and progress with us and one day become an instructor to bring others to our diving comunity
