Trafford Sub Aqua Club (TSAC)

We are branch number 584 of the British Sub-Aqua Club and have been in existence for over 40 years.

We offer training for anyone over the age of 18. This does not only include diving but boat handling, life guard training, first aid and many other courses.

We have had around 70 members and for the last 10 years we complete, on average, around 1100 dives a year.

Our club isn't just about diving, its about training and it's also about having fun! We have many social activities going on in the club, when we aren't diving.

Diving is an activity that has been shown to be extremely satisfying and good for your mental and physical health.

Diving for all programme (DFA)

The BSAC DfA Programme seeks to promote scuba diving to people with disabilities and provide divers, clubs and centres with the knowledge and skills to ensure that diving is safe for all BSAC members.

A national instructor is required for this particular programme and although we haven't got a national instructor ourselves, we can help facilitate this via BSAC.
