Already qualified elsewhere?  You could start diving with us straight away!

Many of our club members are PADI qualified.  To dive with South Bristol Divers you will need to undertake a small amount of training with one of our instructors to bring your training in line with the BSAC qualification system - this can normally be done within a couple of weekends diving and the cost of this conversion (as with all training) is included within your membership. Membership for your first year is £250.

We are also able to take SAA (Sub-Aqua Association), NAUI (National Association of Underwater Instructors) and CMAS (Confédération Mondiale des Activités Subaquatiques) qualified divers.
