Exeter's oldest dive club

Try dive

A one hour session with all the kit plus instruction. Safe and secure in a warm 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 have to be pre-booked, and paid for in advance. Try dives are at the Riverside pool, Exeter (EX4 1AF) on a Tuesday evening 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 ……

Fridays at 8pm in our clubhouse

Come and have a chat and drink in our licensed bar on a 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!
