What is Club Diving?

Club Diving is designed for area's, Countries and regions where direct access to dive sites to practice scuba is limited or not available. Or simply wanting to share activities near your home in your local pool.

For example the UK and Northern Europe where diving maybe limited to just a few months a year... Or Dry Suit Diving, allowing divers to be comfortable in colder water. (Below 16c or below 60f.)  

Two problems exist for cold water 1. is Time in-water is limited to personal tolerance and 2. Specialist equipment is required - like a Dry Suit and Cold Water Regulator etc.

Club Diving As Groups

Another great reason to consider Club Diving is the benefit of joining other like minded people in practicing your favorite activity - i.e. Scuba Diving.

Group diving may include forming or joining a Diving Club in:
Schools, Colleges, Universities... At Work Social Clubs or work groups...
