Already a dive shop and interested in offering BSAC courses? Want to make the sport you love your job too?

Our ethos is to create more scuba divers and get people diving in the UK and worldwide. BSAC Centres can offer a faster route for people to get scuba qualified, whether they want to travel and train on holiday or find their local dive centre in the UK.
