When you book onto a BSAC liveaboard you can have BSAC instructors on hand to support you, if required. This means any training can be delivered on board included in the price.

If you just want to enjoy a diving holiday, that's fine! Crew members will be on hand to guide you and get the most from the experience.

However, on one of our liveaboard boats BSAC instructors are also able to offer bespoke training to meet divers' needs. You'll be in a stunning location on a world-class vessel with BSAC instructors on hand, ready to offer personalised development plans to help meet your diving goals.
