Welcome to BSAC Kidz world!


Join us on a journey into the underwater world!
Over 70% of the Earths surface is covered by the ocean and 50% of all known species live there. It is an alien environment to humans but we can visit simply by learning to snorkel and scuba dive. Join us to explore this incredible habitat.

The best place to start is right here at home on our beautiful British seashore - by findng all the weird and wonderful creatures that live there.

Beachcombing, snorkelling and scuba diving are all healthy, active, safe, fun, educational family activities that can be enjoyed by everyone.

BSACcharactersGrace the Mermaid, Smartie the Dolphin and Oscar the Seal will guide you through this website.

We hope you enjoy it.
