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 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 site
To 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.

Pool News No footie! So Pool it is thence to The SandMartin Message from School re Easter Holidays “There is a strong possibility that the floor in the girls changing rooms in the swimming pool area will be worked on and replaced during the Easter holidays. This work could take over two weeks to complete. The boys changing room will still be available to use should you decide to continue with your lettings over this period. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I am sure in the long run having an upgrade of the changing room will be of benefit to everyone.” I have said we will still be there, so girls, you have a choice - not going in, going in but not showering or getting Bill to scrub your back in the men’s room. You choose J Before we get onto the Dive news, there is one thing to mention - Lets give a big cheers to Matt for his fantastic job in sorting out the club trip, now over subscribed! He doesn't yet realize that we are delegating all future trips to him J Dive news Cossie still features highly on this, but lets hope not for much longer! Sunday saw the normal contingent. Although Bob’s excuse of " no air" was quickly matched by the offer of a whip! He seemed to enjoy it…….although leaving him in charge meant he helped himself to 50 bar from my cylinder! Ross's excuse was even poorer.....”my neck seal is too tight”....he said whilst tucking into more cake Jeff however was busy sorting out his kit after a few months off, and after a 20 min dive declared all ok! Whilst we were braving the depths of Cosmeston International Dive Centre, Phil Latham, decided that somewhere warmer would be nicer, so here is his write up Diving in Los Arcos Puerto Vallarta February 2018: Day dive: Key learning is patience and focus, on buoyancy control: Manta-Rays and the beautiful undersea world Night dive: key learning is how much more there is to see, feel and enjoy once you get over your mind talk and fear of the unknown. As you go out on the boat and the darkness envelopes you, the engine turns off, then your mind runs through all the knowledge you have about the dive-site it’s dangers and potential negatives. You go through your diving plan and brief, you start getting all your equipment on and checking it with so much care and attention, then you get the signal and move into position on the boat for a backwards roll. In that moment......every cell in your body becomes synchronised and more alert than you can ever remember, all you see is darkness as you roll back into the open ocean and face your fears... SPLASH! You bob back up to the surface, feel the strength of the current and swim back to the boat where you begin the descent. The only way to describe the next part of the experience is to quote Carter: “...as my eyes grew accustomed to the light, details of the room within emerged slowly from the mist, strange animals, statues, and gold - everywhere the glint of gold. For the moment - an eternity it must have seemed to the others standing by - I was struck dumb with amazement, and when Lord Carnarvon, unable to stand the suspense any longer, inquired anxiously, 'Can you see anything?' it was all I could do to get out the words, 'Yes, wonderful things.” The colours are spectacular, beyond anything you see during the day, as is the abundance of life. The silence is so Zen like.... you feel and focus completely on the NOW! It truly was, a life defining experience. As rise, look up, the bio illuminance and stars merge into One! Enjoy the pictures 👌🏾🔦🙃 Pictures & film by dive buddies: Carlos: the Canadian Light Doug: the Great Lakes Master Dive Master: Nacho The real Deal!...
