Diving

We dive all year round, in the UK and abroad but mainly on the South Coast, and with regular trips to the Farnes Islands and beyond.

Recently, members have run day trips to Swanage; weekend trips to Lundy, Salcombe and Portland; and a week long trips in Scotland.

We encourage club members to organise diving with the help and oversight of the Diving Officer, who ensures that the diving is safe and appropriate to the organiser’s experience and qualification.

Our club members have a varied and diverse interest in diving, and whether it’s wreck, reef or technical diving, we’re sure there’s a SASAC dive for you! We have both open and closed circuit (rebreather) divers, with a distribution of Sports Diver to First Class BSAC grades which means a widespread level of experience and skill.

We also run training sessions for qualifications, refresher courses and Skill Development Courses with our volunteer instructors; if you’re already a non-BSAC instructor, you can still instruct with us. BSAC offer an Instructor Crossover process).
