BSAC is the acronym for British Sub-Aqua Club.
We scuba dive all round the coast of the UK using our own 6.5M Tornado rigid hulled inflatable boat (Rhib) or on larger chartered boats. Our members regularly plan trips overseas to such destinations as the Red Sea and the Mediterranean. Our members have also dived further a field in the Far East, the Pacific and the Caribbean. We don’t just scuba dive, we also have an active social calendar with regular evening functions to local restaurants and events such as summer BBQ’s & Xmas parties.
Normally no, however scuba diving is a sport that requires general physical fitness and good health. Anyone with a medical history of diabetes, blackouts (epilepsy, etc), perforated eardrums, high blood pressure or heart disease, any lung or respiratory disorder (such as Asthma), or dependence on drugs, may not be able to dive safely and so MUST seek specialist advice before contemplating taking up this sport, unfortunately this includes participating in a ‘Try Dive’.
This is an inevitable step and must be taken carefully. Scuba needs specialist equipment and this can be quite expensive. But as with any sport, there are high end prices and budget prices. It is a good idea to seek advice from those that already dive and see what they use. Seek their advice and comments on the equipment that they use. If possible try the equipment and do not buy without doing your research
There are online auction sites and bargains can be found, but be careful as you may well be paying more than you should and there is no guarantee that the equipment is in working order. So, do not be in a hurry to buy your own equipment and seek advice from as many divers as possible.
