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.

Club News and Notice of Committee Meeting
Pool session Fitzalan – 7:30 – 8:30pm - as ever if you need kit please let me or Steve know – afterwards in The SandMartin Lanzarote Cardiff BSAC Lanzarote 2019 “Those funny black ones are Ross’s. The scabby yellow ones are Bill’s. The pinkie ones are Rhi’s” He stopped momentarily. “I know those” He blurted out, glancing in Andrew’s direction. “Right set of coral crushers those are” Ross decided he wanted his wildlife interference badge, and in the presence of Bill (an old exponent of the dark art) had decided to grab hold of a reasonably sized Torpedo Ray (commonly called the Electric Ray) Holding onto both wings like electrodes, the fish must have thought, aye, aye. He’s worth a right old belt and whacked Ross the voltage. Meanwhile Rhian and Mark G. sat in the boat shivering uncontrollably. Water temperature was 19’C air temperature about the same with a bit of wind chill. They decided to grab some over-suits. The actual diving was the usual Cardiff BSAC standards of floundering about, running low on gas, forgetting stuff, and wee’ing in suits (even while still in the shop kitting up) Mark W’s luggage had all been spray painted with large white crosses (as if it had been condemned by Border force) and fair enough nobody was brave enough to nick it. The newcomers performed admirably and the Dive Centre was well pleased with their performance. You can imagine the fuss and kafuffle that created with grown men wanting theirs measuring. Matt J. had an app on his phone (natch) which could satisfy or dispute the claim. Mark W doubted this and said he might be able to make the grade if the measurement was taken around the back. It was two days later over several schnauzers, Kaz said in a very casual manner. “You know what I said about the 9”. I made that up” Mark G. Mark W. Mark T. Matt J. Matt Y. Linda W. Linda T. (now my spell-checker’s broken) Andrew, Andy & Rhian, Ross, Dan & Liane, Anne & Steve, Dave, Kaz, Chris and Bill To Safari Divers staff for putting up with us, and to everyone on the trip who enjoyed themselves. Having had a week away from our favourite watering hole, we were desperate to get back into the lake. Bill was there to supervise some rescue drills, which provided some amusement to the passing dog walkers! Other than were passing divers/victims had stirred it up, Cossie is still clear.
