Welcome to our web site. Please have a look around what we can offer you.
Bedford Sub Aqua Club (BedSAC) is an independent scuba diving club, which was formed in 1960 and caters for divers of all backgrounds and interests, as well as snorkeling and social members. We are branch 0089 of the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC).
BedSAC meets every Wednesday evening. Our pool session, where we swim, snorkel, carry out diver training or simply “go for a bubble” is at “Bedford School” which is the Boy’s school in De Parys Avenue, just 5 minutes from Robinson pool, between 8-00 and 9-00 pm (in-water pool time is between 8.10 and 9.10). We are also associate members of Bedford Rowing Club, and are able to use their facility in Duckmill Lane for meetings, training and social events. Many members will head over to the Rowing Club for a beer and a chat after the pool session.
We provide diver training at all levels using the internationally-recognised BSAC training and qualification scheme.
We can provide Try-dive taster sessions for those who have not tried scuba diving before. A try dive will cost you £15 per person for about 45 minutes in the water. Contact Paul for more information. Why not make it a gift for someone who is keen to give scuba diving a go? Gift vouchers are available.

All training equipment is provided, but new members are encouraged to buy their own fins, mask and snorkel early in the course; to ensure a correct individual fit.
Our divers organise a wide variety of diving trips and we have our own Rigid-hulled Inflatable Boat (RIB) based in Sea Palling.
We can also hire charter boats to go diving in locations further away, from the south of England to Scotland, Wales and Orkney (Scapa Flow) and shore dives are organised.
Trips to warm-water destinations all over the world are organised by members of the club.
Need a tune-up before you go on holiday, we can help! See our tune-up page for more details.
Anyone who has already trained with another diving organisation, eg PADI, SAA, NAUI, CMAS, to a level that is comparable, can complete a BSAC cross-over programme if they wish to do so. Alternatively, they may arrange to join BedSAC and dive using their existing qualification.
