TVSAC

If you are a non-BSAC diver qualified to any level through other training organisations and wish to dive with us but not become part of BSAC you can join our sister club TVSAC. You will then need to pay the annual club fee of £113.

You will need to show evidence of your own third party liability insurance for diving – this can be obtained from Divemaster Insurance for approximately £10.

We welcome members from all training backgrounds, those who might want to cross train, move their training on into Seamanship and Boat Handling, or those who simply want to dive and socialise within an active club.

Its not unusual for recently qualified PADI Open Water or Advanced Open Water divers to approach us looking for a club environment to dive in following either training in the UK or overseas on holiday. All divers trained by other agencies are welcome to join us.
