Would you like to go diving?

Exeter BSAC

can show you how

The sea is rather chilly at the moment, but we’ve got a lovely warm pool to learn in. Learn to dive now, and be ready for this summer.

If you’re already a diver, come on a club dive with us. It costs nothing to come and dive as a visitor. Don’t worry if you trained with PADI, SAA or anyone else. Just come and dive! See our forthcoming events page for details or use the ‘Contact Us’ form. Some of our club members dive through the winter. If you’ve not dived in a while, then for a small fee we’ll give you a pool refresher session before getting in the sea. Come and try UK diving after Easter, and don’t let that training go to waste.

Exeter's oldest diving club

Try dive

A one hour session with all the kit plus instruction. Safe and secure in a local swimming pool. This session includes everything, and is only £20 for adults, £15 for children. The minimum age for a try dive is 8 but there's no upper age limit. Try Dives are currently Tuesdays at the Riverside swimming pool, Exeter (EX4 1AF), meeting there at 19:45.

Learn to dive

Learn to dive safely under the guidance of BSAC Instructors. This usually takes 2 evenings a week over 6 weeks, followed by 4 sea dives.

Already a diver?

We welcome divers trained with any agency PADI, SSI, NAUI etc. Don't worry if you've not dived in the UK before, because we can arrange an experienced buddy to dive with you. Come along and dive as a guest. Exeter BSAC has a small amount of kit that can be hired. If you are a technical diver, we have a few members who enjoy 40+ metre dives.

The club has several Advanced Instructors, numerous Open Water Instructors, plus an Instructor for people with disabilities. There should be nothing to stop you diving. And UK diving can be colourful ......


8pm Fridays in our clubhouse

Come and have a chat and drink in our licensed bar one Friday evening. Don’t worry if you are a complete novice, not dived for years, or just curious to know more about diving.

If you can swim, then come and talk diving with us. The underwater world is amazing!


Whether you are simply curious about Exeter BSAC, fancy a try dive in the pool, or just want to learn more, then we’re here to answer any questions. Don’t be scared to ask – even if you think it might be a silly question.
