Scuba diving in South Wales with Cardiff BSAC
Have you ever wanted to go diving and swim amongst the fascinating and varied marine life that inhabits the underwater world?

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 42 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 contact us about taking a "try dive" in our local pool.

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 site

Thanks to Sioni and Megan for organising and for everyone else for turning up! A few made cossie in the morning, mainly those who hadn't made the meal, or had the sense to leave early the night before! Cossie still reasonably clear, with some very defined thermoclines! Pink stuff is making a come back though, and its not gin! Mark Warren, finally remembered his dry suit, he was late in the water mind you,as his buddy Bill, had a round trip first to get his weight belt! Mark however showed his mettle when he took to the water sans hood and gloves, " them’s for wimps" was the comment. Mark Gosling however finished off Ed and Abi’s Ocean diver training with trips to Cromhall and Cosmeston - Mark also threw in a “fish interference course” as an added bonus “I had a fun incident with a fish last night. Abi and Ed were doing their dive leading exercise with me following along, when I felt something touching my fin. I turned around to find a large blind carp coming straight at me, it swam all around me coming very close and in the end I had to put my hand on it to push it away. It didn't look healthy and it's eyes were obviously not working. Don't suppose it will be around for much longer.” reported Mark Well done to Ed and Abi on becoming Ocean Divers Plymouth and Weymouth Matt is organizing 2 trips The Plymouth trip has 2 spaces left, and there is one space on the Weymouth if you are interested, let Matt know.
