BSAC Encouraging Qualified Divers To Dive With Local Clubs


The British Sub-Aqua Club is encouraging divers who hold qualifications from other training agencies to find their local club and get in touch to visit and join them on a dive or dive trip.

Visiting divers will be covered with BSAC’s insurance to try diving with a club.

BSAC also announced it has scheduled two-day “Instructor Crossover Courses” through September and October for instructors from other agencies to easily get involved in instructing. Plus, divers from all agencies are invited to come along to the NW Dive Fest at Capernwray Dive Centre in Lancashire on Friday, September 27th.

According to BSAC CEO Mary Tetley:

“Qualified divers have always been very welcome and this summer we’re making an extra effort to encourage divers from all agencies to try diving with BSAC. We believe our local UK waters offer unparalleled diving experiences and we’d love all divers living in the UK to experience that.”

This summer, BSAC clubs across the UK are opening their doors to qualified divers from all agencies. Whether they’re certified by PADI, SSI, CMAS or another organisation, BSAC is challenging all divers to experience the unique underwater experiences Britain has to offer.
