The British Sub-Aqua Club or BSAC has been recognised since 1954 by the Sports Council as the national governing body of recreational diving in the United Kingdom.
The club was founded in 1953. It is a diver training organization that operates through its associated network of around 1,100 local, independent diving clubs and around 400 diving schools worldwide.
BSAC is unusual for a diver training agency in that most BSAC instructors are volunteers, giving up their spare time to train others.
Given that UK waters are relatively cold and have restricted visibility, BSAC training is regarded by its members as more comprehensive than some. Specifically it places emphasis on rescue training very early in the programme.
The current President of BSAC is the Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.
About the Club
We have CRB approved and experienced BSAC qualified instructors who will train you in a safe pool and sheltered water environments.
As members become more experienced divers, they are encouraged to progress through the various levels of BSAC Instructor qualifications. Our instructors regularly help deliver and support regional and national training events.
We have a comprehensive range of well-maintained equipment for SCUBA training together with a 6 Metre Tornado RIB which has just completed a £20,000 refit project. Plus, other supporting equipment for undertaking diving expeditions.
Besides having an active and thriving social life, past and present members also communicate socially through our club’s Facebook page Southport BSAC Sub Aqua Club page LINK, and there are usually fresh postings almost daily about our diving and social activities.
