Announcing our Madagascar 2020 Spectacular!

We’ve planned a unique and exciting trip, combining great diving, warm water and eco-tourism too.

Come and join us on this amazing trip, and not only will you see spectacular wildlife – both above and below the surface – but you will be able to contribute to research into the populations of visiting whale sharks and resident green & hawksbill sea turtles.

Welcome

People get so many different rewards as members of a club, and a dive club is no different. We’re all joined by a love of our sport and a wish to enjoy the underwater world, but that’s not all a dive club is there for.

A typical diving day includes a drive to the coast, time to get changed, maybe transport to the dive site on a boat. You then spend some time in the water, taking part in the activity itself, before a surface interval and your second dive. When that’s all done we turn around and head back home. You can have been out all day, and that’s before you consider washing the salt from the kit! So, the social side of diving becomes really important, and that’s where our dive club comes in.

In the past, we’ve held events away from the water including bowling, laser quest and cider tasting, as well as countless club get-togethers for meals and drinks. Our latest club event brought together over 40 divers for a club Christmas meal at The Stable, a pizza and cider speciality restaurant in Bristol.

It’s a time to meet friends you would only otherwise see underwater, discuss your fond memories of this year’s dives and make new plans for the year to come!

TRIPS

As an active dive club, we offer dive trips all across the UK, from the Isles of Scilly in the South, Scapa Flow in the North and plenty of coastline in between. We also arrange club holidays, and have visited Egypt, Mexico and Malta recently and are looking forward to setting off to the Maldives in 2019 and planning Madagascar for 2020.

Specialities

Members also get access to our Speciality of the Month training programme, with a diverse selection of PADI speciality training courses for those divers looking to learn new skills. These courses are run for members only, and not only offer a discounted price for selected dates, they also offer the chance to learn alongside other club members.

KIT HIRE

• Free kit hire for all organised club dives*

• 50% discount on kit hire for all other diving

* An organised club dive is any dive where you are paying to attend, such as a boat trip or where you are paying for guided diving or training. If you are joining in with a local trip to a quarry where we are training you can continue to hire kit, which will be charged at discounted club member rates below.

SOCIAL

In the past, we’ve held events away from the water including bowling, laser quest and cider tasting, as well as countless club get-togethers for meals and drinks.

I was very lucky to take a group of awesome divers on this trip with me, who are not only my dive buddies but my friends too!
