The Duke of Cambridge Scuba Prize is awarded annually to the member or group of members of the BSAC for outstanding achievement in research in the field of scuba diving.
This prize is to supersede the Duke of Edinburgh Prize. HRH Duke of Edinburgh has recently retired from public duties, this includes the award and presentation of his prize for sub-aqua.
We are very proud to say that the President of BSAC, HRH Duke of Cambridge, will now be presenting an annual prize for scuba – the Duke of Cambridge Scuba Prize.
