Already a Qualified Diver?

  • Perhaps you stopped diving a while ago and are keen to back into the water?
  • Are you an experienced diver moving into the Rugby area and looking for a club?
  • Have you recently completed a diving course with another agency, such as PADI Open Water?
  • Are you an active diver just looking for new buddies and a chance to try different dive sites?

We’re always keen to welcome both guest divers and potential new members. We have an active diving and training schedule, and a friendly membership always up for a chat over a drink after diving.

No matter what your existing qualification – from PADI Open Water to an Advanced Technical Instructor from another agency, we welcome all existing divers into our club and encourage you to dive with us within the limits of your existing qualifications.

If you’d like to further your training with us, we take your existing training into consideration, and you will begin training for the next level of BSAC certification – no need to start back at the beginning!
