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 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).

Pool session Fitzalan – 7:30 – 8:30pm - as ever if you need kit please let me or Steve know! Afterwards at The Sandmartin Dive News Cossie was “overrun” by couple of hundred 10 k’ers – all of whom appeared to be trying to get in the café at the same time. Sadly for us, however, most of them appeared to have driven there, so parking close to the slip was not an option! Luckily we got to the café before they did. We’ve been informed this isn’t a regular event – but if anyone catches anything like this on facebook, can they please let me or Steve know so we can time things appropriately!
