We are one of the most active dive clubs in the northeast of Scotland. Our membership of 40-50 divers carry out hundreds of dives every year (and no, we do not stop over the winter!). We dive locally (east coast and Moray Firth), in the west coast, the islands (even St. Kilda!) and abroad. We dive from inflatables, hard boats and the shore. We do wreck dives, night dives, drift dives, decompression dives, and lots of shallow, easy, scenic dives.
As well as local diving in the NE of Scotland, we have several trips/expeditions per year, ranging from long weekends to week long trips (see the Expedition Programme Page). If you want good, varied and safe diving in a very relaxed and friendly environment, then we are the club for you!!!
We are very committed to diver training, at basic and more advanced levels, including a wide range of speciality courses (in-house and SSAC-organised). We are purely voluntary and consequently our aim is to train, not to profit, but our standards are fully professional. We also welcome divers from other organisations - your level of training and experience will be taken into account in your cross-over! Please have a look at the ScotSAC crossover pages.
Pool training for brand-new divers has resumed in the 2022-23 season after Covid-19 caused the closure of local pools for two years. After issues with our standard pool slot on Monday nights (19:30-21:15 h) at the Aberdeen Grammar School pool due to refurbishment, this year we are using the International School of Aberdeen pool on Tue. nights (20:15-21:30; 7 Nov-13 Mar). Trained divers (crossing over) from other agencies (PADI, SAA, SSI, CMAS, BSAC, etc.) who are dry suit trained and therefore do not need any pool sessions are welcome to join us at any time - if needing dry suit training, you will generally need to do that in the pool but there are other alternatives, depending on your experience. Please use the web form on the Contact page and we will get back to you. Anyone without prior experience interested in learning to dive with us in 2023-24 should contact us and we will get back to you once we know more about next year's plans.
