We welcome experienced divers from all agencies.

You can keep your existing certification when you join us, we will simply award you the BSAC equivalent certification that allows you to dive within the same safe limits. There is no requirement for extra training. All we ask is that you become a member of BSAC and the club.

For example, if you join us as a PADI Open Water diver, you would maintain this certification level. We would award you the BSAC Ocean Diver certification, without the need for any further training. You can then remain at the Ocean Diver level, dive with the club and, if you want, progress your training with us to BSAC Sports Diver and beyond.

Note that you will have to present evidence of the qualifications you already hold in the form of original and authenticated certificates, training records in other agency logbooks, etc.

As a club, we have many active divers from different agencies. We have a large proportion of PADI trained divers, even a PADI Instructor. We also have SSI and SAA trained divers.
