Following on from the success of BSAC’s first NW Diving Festival at Capernwray last year, the event will be returning this September.

Originally held to mark BSAC’s 70th, the event saw more than 200 members attending the day to help celebrate the milestone anniversary. Now, thanks to popular demand, Friday, 27 September will see its return, this time re-named the NW Dive Festival.

Organised by the North West Regional Team and supported by BSAC, the event at Capernwray Dive centre in Lancashire is promises a jam-packed day of activities, both in and out of the water.

While the itinerary is still being finalised, an underwater photo competition, treasure hunt, scooter sessions and CCR try dives are just some of the activities attendees can expect. The day will also be compered by DJ Coshe. Current event sponsors include Apeks, Northern Diver, AP Diving, Fourth Element, Dive Manchester and the NW Underwater Police Search team.
