Ocean Diver
Got the underwater bug? From the age of 12 you can go on to learn to scuba dive with BSAC. We've been training people to dive for more than 60 years, starting probably around the time when your grandparents were born! This is where you start using full SCUBA (Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus) equipment. Breathing underwater for the first time is something you will never forget and the experience of learning with others is great fun. With scuba, the underwater world opens up to even more exciting adventures as you can go deeper and stay down for longer! More...
