Welcome to the web site for Southend Sub-Aqua Club BSAC 22. Our club was formed in 1955 and since then its members have dived all over the UK and around the world.

We carry out regular day diving trips from ports on the south coast with easy access to the many wrecks and reefs found in that area. We also venture to locations such as the Farne Islands and Scapa Flow for longer trips.

For training and refreshing rusty dive skills we use inland dive sites but we also have access to a 6m pool for new skills development. See the diving courses page for ful details of the scuba training available through the club as part of your BSAC membership.

If you qualified with another agency you can easily transfer your certification to BSAC. Our training officer will be happy to arrange refresher training if you have not dived recently.

If you would like to arrange a try dive session or are interested in joining our club contact the Dive Officer for further information.


BSAC is the largest diving agency in the UK with over 1000 clubs in the UK and overseas. There are many benefits to joining and diving with your local BSAC club which include:
