This course provides the essential knowledge and skills needed to prepare for open water diving.  The Ocean Diver course prepares for this in the safety of a swimming pool and an introduction to open water in a controlled, safe manner.  Experience and confidence will be gained under the guidance of a qualified BSAC instructor.  Maximum depth 20metres.

Cost: £358  (correct as of 20-09-2023, includes BSAC membership, all equipment and materials)


We train and dive under the internationally recognised standards of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC), but we also welcome divers qualified from other agencies.  So, whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced diver, Bexley Sub-Aqua Club can help you achieve your diving goals.

If you’ve ever wondered what it is like to be a scuba diver then why not start your underwater adventure with a Try Dive taster session?  Try Dives involve poolside tuition on diving techniques and equipment, followed by a scuba dive in our swimming pool.  Sessions last appx 90mins and are supervised by a BSAC-qualified instructor.

Cost: Adult (18+): £25.00   Child (min age 10*): £17.50

Please note for previous divers needing a refresher dive we charge £35.00

*For safety children must be at least 0.9m at the shoulder.

Sports Diver training builds a sound foundation of open water diving skills and experience with structured, practical lessons. Qualified Sports Divers are ready to take part in dives with other Sports Divers or higher. Depth can be built progressively to a maximum of 35m after qualifying.  Sports Divers can embark on the first stage of the route of instruction.


Dive Leader training covers responsibilities and safety of leading other divers. Practical lessons will give divers confidence to deal with emergencies. Leading a dive will develop enjoyment, confidence and experience as a diver. Depth can be built progressively to a maximum of 50m after qualifying.  Dive Leaders are eligible to progress to Advanced Diver and also embark on the Instructor path.


BSAC Advanced Diver training produces a trained, experienced and responsible diver.  It provides further structured broadening of experience via consolidation, through largely practical situational training. The BSAC Advanced Diver can manage and supervise a wide range of adventurous and challenging diving activities.  These include branch diving expeditions to explore unfamiliar locations and branch diving activities including dives which utilise developing technology and techniques.


Through our affiliation with BSAC you can further your training and even become an instructor.  The next grade after BSAC Advanced Diver is BSAC First Class Diver (the highest dive grade there is).  There are also many Skill Development courses on offer from First Aid and Boat Handling to Underwater Photography and Wreck Diving, whatever interests you.


Bexley members enjoy the use of the pool twice a month (to swim or train), access to club equipment including our RIB boat and all the diving and social activities that we organise.

BSAC membership also gives you 3rd Party liability insurance, free regional support and a free, monthly copy of SCUBA Magazine.

*Junior members must be accompanied by parent or guardian with Full Adult Membership.
