BSAC training enables members to organise their own exciting scuba diving adventures. BSAC scuba diving expeditions are organised every year all over the world for members to take part in...
A diving expedition is simply a group of divers going diving for a purpose. A dive, or series of dives, that is more challenging and that deliver specific results, rather than the usual (yet enjoyable) club dive or holiday.
Want to take part in or organise an expedition?
Expeditions can be organised by clubs, regions or by groups of clubs or individual members working together. To get started:
- Speak to the Diving Officer or Expeditions Officer in your club.

- Sign up to one of the inter-club expeditions (see table below)...
