Learning to scuba dive can be a life-changing experience, bringing a whole host of exciting underwater opportunities and friends to enjoy them with.
From beginner to advanced, Bermuda Sub Aqua Club provides the full BSAC training programme enabling divers to progress through a framework of qualifications at their own pace.
BSAC’s Ocean Diver course is the place to start. This entry-level open water diver qualification will equip you with the core skills to dive to a maximum of 20 metres in open water.
With BSAC, diving skills are taught progressively, with each new skill and experience built upon, step-by-step. The blend of theory, swimming pool and open water skills sessions along with continual technique practice enables you to develop your diving in a safe and enjoyable way.
With BSAC there are five internationally-recognised diver grades, from the entry-level Ocean Diver through to First Class Diver.Get started today!
To learn to scuba dive with Bermuda Sub Aqua Club will cost you around $150 for the course itself, plus your BSAC Bermuda membership fee – for further information, please contact membership.
All of our instructors are volunteers, so you are paying only for the course materials and the Club membership – which you then have for the year and gives you all the benefits of BSAC membership in Bermuda!
As a beginner, you will have lots of questions about scuba diving equipment. Do I need all the dive kit from the very start? How expensive is it to get all the kit I need?
Once you start your Ocean Diver training, it’s a good idea to purchase your own basic gear – a mask, fins, wetsuit and snorkel. We suggest going to Makin’ Waves in Hamilton who will happily be able to help you with that, or there are various different online options – come down to talk to us on a Wednesday or ask your instructors and they will have suggestions! BSAC Bermuda has scuba diving equipment that we will loan to you in order that you can complete the Ocean Diver course.
When you qualify, you’ll want to get your own gear. There can be a huge range in prices and there’s lots of variation – everyone has their own preferences! Your friends at BSAC Bermuda can provide suggestions of where you can buy from, and there are dive shops on the island who occasionally order in gear. Again, come down to the Club and chat to us and we’ll help!
Learning to dive with Bermuda Sub Aqua Club is fun and great value. For many learning to dive starts with a Try Dive, why not take the plunge yourself to try it out?Find out more
