Cross Over (Already Qualified Divers)

It’s easy for PADI qualified (or other agency divers) to dive with BSAC. If you have a recognised qualification you do not need to do any further cross-over training. (Unless you want to!) It doesn’t matter who you trained with (recreational, commercial or military) if you’ve never dived in the UK or if you haven’t dived for a while, everyone is welcome so please come and join us.

All you have to do to get started is attend:
 2 theory lessons
 1 checkout dive
Once you have completed the above, you can dive with us according to your equivalent BSAC grade (and progress to further training if you wish)!
