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

Club News
Pool News Pool as ever, thence to The SandMartin. Please remember , if you need kit (or have asked for kit but cant make pool) to let me or Steve know. Don’t forget this is the last pool session for a couple of weeks. We are also saying “goodbye” to Darren, the caretaker. He has been very generous with us over the years, letting us in early and allowing us to use the door by the front car park, rather than going round the back. If you are at pool tonight, please do wish him well! Dive news West Wales 11/12th Well we gave it a go. That’s possibly the point at which to leave it! We launched Saturday, (and yes I forgot about the side scan sonar) to try and dive The Lochshiel and The Behar. Brendan took up the helm and got us round to the wreck site, … we jumped in….then Dave came back for more weights. Lessons learned Pre launch checks! We all need lessons on our fantabulous fish finder Make sure of your weights When you are 20 yards away from your buddies when you descend, you wont find them underwater Computers are better on your wrist than in the B&B Well I don’t like the Lochshiel anyway, so it didn’t matter that I didn’t find it, or my buddies. Brendan reckoned he found it – I think that was the only wreck seen all weekend (other than Steve). Sea wasn’t silk, more like milk. Viz was 1-2m, but through fog. After a quick call back to change cylinders, we then set off for The Behar. Brendan had called it a day (probably a wise move) so the slightly depleted boat set off for The Behar, under Dave’s gentle ministrations….after I got my breath back from being winded as I hit the deck, Dave had an admonishment for reckless driving, along the lines of “FFS, slow down”. Unfortunately the choppy sea state meant slower, meant sea sick, and half the crew were various shades of green. We dutifully found The Behar on the chart, but according to the scanner, there was no wreck beneath us. As Steve’s favourite transits (The triple breasted w…re from Eroticon 6) was lost in the low clouds, we made a best guess ……guess what……The Behar wasn’t there. Under the influence of my bout with seasickness, I decided to use the ladder. This is where a slight design fault comes in, as there is little to hang onto as you round the back of the boat. OK, at least he came back for me. On the way back it was an interesting retrieval, given the low tide, and anyway who needs a slip? Lessons learned Reverse is not the same as 1st gear. Wearing glasses when driving is often described as “a good idea” We decided to knock it on the head after Saturday. Whilst rumours of slightly better weather were abounding, the viz was unlikely to improve overnight. And given the weather we drove through on the way home, probably the best idea of the weekend. We did consider next weekend, but a very scientific comment put paid to that “It’s the county show next weekend, its never good weather for the county show” the Landlady, Brenda, said sagely. Brenda and her hubby Peter also broke the bad news, they are selling up and retiring (down the road) so The Taberna is up for sale…..I’ve tried to get Marcus from The Fag in Penarth interested, so lets see – although the prices would go up and there would probably be bouncers on the door. Cossie and a Curry Tuesday 21st August Going on recommendations have change the venue to Mos, the Indian we have been to before, by Penarth station. It is a bring your own, with a small cover charge, so you can bring beer/cider/wine etc ( there is an off licence opposite, also a Tesco a minute walk away). I need numbers mainly for the restaurant, rather than the lake. Cossie- we need to be there for 6:30 and in for 7. Dip limited to 30 mins , curry booked for 8:30. Please do come down to support the divers. Let me know if you are on the list but can't make it, or would like to be included! So far I have these curry lovers: Jeff Smith Gareth Edward Risby +1 Brian Pentland Chris Asbridge David Davies +1 Cameron Sleeth +1 Mark Warren +1 Kasra Almasian Bill Trezise Matthew Youde Ben Delphine Séjourné Sioni Hole Megan David, Matt Jones Mark Gosling Imogen Danks+ 1...
