Training Equipment

We have ten full sets of our own training equipment, so you’ll not need to buy or hire anything during your training. Although once you have settled in you should think about gathering together some equipment little by little.

After Training

We not only train you but also organize weekly dives at local sites, and at holiday periods we run trips to destinations further a-field. On the social side there are get-togethers at events such as fund raising nights, annual dinners etc. We also meet every Thursday evening at our clubhouse.

Further Your Training

As well as joining in our Club activities, there will be opportunities to broaden your diving experience by going on specialist courses such as – Boat Handling; Search and Recovery; Navigation and Chartwork; First Aid; Underwater Photography and many more.
