Our experienced Instructors and Divemasters have many years of diverse diving experience throughout the world and we guarantee you first rate training in a professional and friendly atmosphere. Customer satisfaction is our primary aim and Bay Divers welcomes perspective divers of all ages - you can learn to dive from the age of ten!
We also offer:

• Multi agency technical dive training between 40 and 100 metres and rebreather training.

Whats been happening:
First off, a big well done to Rod & Tristan on achieving the highly prestigious Divemaster qualification. They've worked tirelessly over the last year, assisting in the running of dive courses in the pool and open water and passing their inwater assessments and exams...Well done guys!!!!
In recent months Bay Divers has been running several discover scuba diving courses, our current PADI Rescue Diver Course and (as always!) welcoming new members. The end of February saw a few of us from the club go to the Midlands Diving Chamber for a 50 metre dry dive and a chance to talk to the chamber operator. We will be organising another of these fabulous days out towards the end of the dive season - this time on a Saturday so more of us can join! This year, we are also planning several weekends away including boat dives to 'The Smalls' in the Irish Sea, dive sites around the stunning West Wales peninsular and Gower plus a few perspective trips further afield such as Plymouth & Cornwall. We are also looking to organise some family days during the summer, where we divers can set up at a beautiful diving spot and bring picnics and BBQs for all the family to enjoy while we take in a few dives - Try dives in open water also available for the family on request!
On the 9th August we are planning our annual 'biggy' for a weeks solid diving in Egypt onboard 5* MV Voyager diving 'Northern Wrecks & Reefs'. We will be taking in the stunning wrecks such as 'Thislegorm', 'Carnatic' and 'Ghiannis D' and the beautiful reefs of Jackson Reef, Thomas Reef, Gordon Reef to name but a few in the Ras Mohammed National Park. Check out the Blue O2 website for full details if you wish to come. There are SPACES available. Divers wishing to come only need the minimum of an Advanced Open Water qualification or equivalent from any agency. The price is £1049 (with a £50 discount taken off this price should 10 or more divers sign up) and this includes all flights and transfers, accomodation onboard, food, non-alcoholic drink, cylinders, weights and air fills! We will also be having the usual end of trip night out in Hurghada with plenty of fun and shisha! Want to join? Call Karl (club owner) on 07859018970 to enquire.
We are also taking bookings for nitrox, deep and wreck diving courses, providing there is at least two of you, we can tailor a course to suit.
TEC DIVE TRAINING
Technical diving is generally described as diving between 40 and 100 metres, breathing certain gas mixes at certain depths and conducting decompression stops. Equipment differences range from twinset, backplate and harness configurations to full closed circuit (rebreather) systems with sideslung and bailout cylinders. We now provide the technical diver training. Full details can be found on the tab marked 'Technical Dive Training', for which you need to be an advanced open water diver with nitrox & deep diver training. We also provide a gateway into other technical diving organisations such as International Association of Nitrox and Technical Divers (IANTD) and International Association of Rebreather Trainers (IART)."
