Learn to dive

As a branch of the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC), we run courses for the various BSAC qualifications, starting with the entry-level Ocean Diver grade. Within a year of joining the club it’s possible to become a competent diver at BSAC’s Sports Diver grade. Free instruction is one of the many benefits of joining SASAC. For details about the Ocean Diver and Sports Diver courses click here. For a video introduction to the club click here.

Why not come down to the club for a try dive before you decide if you want to join the Ocean Diver Course. Try dives take place on the first Wednesday of each month; after an introductory briefing at the clubhouse you’ll be taken on a dive at Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre under the careful supervision of a club instructor. All equipment is provided and the try dive will cost £10. For details call: 01727 859 829 or submit the contact request form below.
