About British Sub-Aqua Club

 

Like many great organisations, BSAC started small. A few enthusiasts came together and decided that divers needed a club.

Run by divers, for divers since being established in London in1953 by entrepreneur Oscar Gugen, the British Sub-Aqua Club has evolved over the years - from a small group of dedicated members and diving pioneers to the BSAC of today, the largest dive club in the world.

From the beginning, BSAC has received worldwide recognition as a leader, standard-setter and innovator in the field of sport diving. BSAC knows just how enjoyable and life-changing diving can be. And with a worldwide reputation for excellence and safety, BSAC provides all the training and support you need to get the best out of this exciting sport.

Our training programme is open to all levels of diver - from the entry level Ocean or Snorkel Diver through to our Instructor courses. Our complementary skill development and specialist courses enable divers to continue to widen their own experience and enjoyment of the sport.

And, as the UK National Governing Body for Underwater Activities, we also work continuously to ensure the ongoing development, safety and enjoyment of scuba for all. BSAC is committed to promoting, protecting and representing the interests of all divers and snorkellers throughout the UK.

Our Divers Making Waves…to protect our seas initiative underpins BSAC’s commitment to the marine environment, both at home and around the world.

From engaging BSAC members in the issues currently facing the marine environment through to galvanising divers and snorkellers to get involved, BSAC hopes that Making Waves will live up to its name.

Whatever type of diving you enjoy, you have the privilege of experiencing the variety and beauty of the natural environment underwater at first hand.

 

As divers it is in our interest to look after it.
