Welcome to the Underwater World of Cardiff BSAC
Would you like to join other local divers on an exploration of the ship wrecks that have come to rest on the sea bed around the UK coast line?
Do you perhaps see your self as a modern day Jacques Cousteau?
Well why not turn your dream into reality by joining Cardiff BSAC, and taking up scuba diving.
At Cardiff BSAC we've been training divers for over 46 years, and are able to offer scuba diving courses for all levels of experience, including complete beginners, experienced divers seeking a more advanced dive rating, and divers crossing over from other training agencies, such as PADI.
If you're interested in taking up Scuba Diving, and live in the Cardiff or South Glamorgan areas of Wales, why not come along to one of Cardiff BSAC's weekly pool training sessions, and ask for a "try dive".
The worse that can happen is that you'll become hooked, and decide to join Cardiff BSAC and learn to Scuba Dive with Cardiff's premiere branch of the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC).
So take the plunge and dive into this scuba diving web siteTo see what the sport of scuba diving is really all about, check out the photos and movies in Cardiff BSAC's Facebook albums.
You can also read a full report of the survey of the wreck of the Thor (file size 2mb), which was undertaken by members of Cardiff BSAC, with the financial support of the British Sub-aqua Club.
