We believe the BSAC Ocean Diver course is one of the most thorough entry-level diver training courses out there. We'll teach you to scuba dive and become a safe, confident and self-reliant diver.

Why learn to dive with BSAC on the Ocean Diver course...

  • Easy steps to achieve your dive qualification – sure, safe progress built upon step by step
  • Quality time - learn from some amazing instructors to ensure you learn most effectively
  • BSAC’s Ocean Diver course teaches you to dive safely and learn new safety and rescue skills for life 
  • Training for basic Nitrox - using the latest techniques

But in all honesty, we don’t think the quality of the course or teaching is the best part about learning to dive with BSAC. The best bit is being part of a club, and this is really what makes BSAC different. 

We believe scuba divers get much more out of the sport as part of a club. Club life is not just about having access to great scuba training, it’s about being part of a social group of divers and enjoying diving together.
