Looking for a dive (Bexley Sub Aqua Members Only)
Please contact the Dive Manager (DM) directly
regarding details and latest availability. Make sure you are suitably qualified

for the dive, you still may be able to join the dive for the shallower second dive -
contact trip DM for further details.If you wish to dive on a given
dive that is currently FULL, you can register yourself as a reserve.
Contact the trip DM to register your interest.
It is common courtesy to check-in with the trip
DM on the evening prior to travel. Never assume a dive is on,
always check to avoid disappointment. All dives should be conducted as safely
as possible and individuals should be aware of the BSAC safe diving policies (these can be found in the
members only section)which state recommendations to enhance the enjoyment and safety of our sport.
The trip DM and/or Diving Officer may interpret and implement these
considerations to divers should the need arise.
Rib Diving: Due to the limitations of space onboard the two club RIBs, please note that large twinsets are not usually allowed, seek permission from the trip DM prior to travel.
All Dives require deposits to confirm bookings - check with the trip DM.
