We believe scuba divers get much more out of the sport as part of a club. BSAC club diving offers the most thrilling, challenging and rewarding diving you are ever likely to do. It offers adventure, opportunity, friendship and fun.
The best way to find out if club life is for you is by visiting a club. There you can try scuba diving with a knowledgeable scuba instructor, or if you're already a scuba diver you can meet the club before joining.
BSAC club life
Club life is not just about having access to world-class training, club gear and great diving opportunities at home and overseas. It’s about connecting with like-minded people and enjoying diving adventures together.
If you live in the UK, there’s probably a BSAC club within a few miles of your home. The doors are open to all whether you wish to learn to dive or have already trained with another agency. Much like other clubs, BSAC clubs are all different so you may wish to visit a few before deciding. Find a club.
If you are interested in doing a training course quickly, completing a course at a BSAC centre is probably the best route for you. However, if you are interested in belonging to a group of divers and joining them on various adventures, club life will be for you.
