Joining

Where do I start?

For questions about joining or coming to meet us, please contact the membership secretary Email: membership@hackneydiving.org. If you are a new diver then why not try a
£10 hour long try dive experience (money refunded if you join).

Alternatively you can email one of the committee members listed on our Contacts page, or you can approach us on Monday evenings at the pool (8:30 – 9:30 pm) or the Approach Tavern (9:30pm onwards). We will arrange a try dive for you if you have never dived before. If you are a qualified diver we will be more than happy to welcome you to the club and discuss the benefits of membership.

Diving need not be an expensive sport and we are a non-profit club. A list of our costs is available.

What is BSAC?

BSAC is the British Sub-Aqua Club. As a member of HSAC, you automatically join BSAC, the biggest dive club in the world. The difference between BSAC and PADI is that with BSAC you join a club environment and train at a pace that suits you. You are led through the various stages of training and go on dive trips that the club organises. PADI is a commercial training qualification. Both qualifications are universally recognised. Your PADI qualifications are recognised by BSAC.

For further details on BSAC visit their website.
