Joining the Club

Anyone is welcome to join the club but we do ask that prospective members have at least the basic PADI, BSAC, NAUI, SSI or CMAS qualifications, and can obtain their own basic kit to use for diving.

There are two parts to the membership payment. Membership to the Club is only $30 and offers qualified divers access to all club activities. This money goes towards expenses such as the club's first aid and oxygen kits. The BSAC membership costs approximately $110 and provides BSAC club benefits such as monthly magazine, insurance and the chance to do further training in a not-for-profit club. Both memberships are mandatory for you to become a full diving member of the Sydney Sub Aqua Club.

Membership of the Club will give you access to all of the diving we do, as well the chance to get to know a number of potential buddies to call up if there is no club dive. By booking as a group we can often take advantage of club bookings, meaning that you can dive some of the best sites at very reasonable prices.

As a member you will be able to participate in a range of BSAC dive training courses including Sports Diver, Advanced Nitrox / Extended Range, O2 Administration and Dive Leader, all of which are available to club members with the appropriate qualifications. Please contact our diving officer Owen Davies for further details.
