Mid Cornwall Divers are an active British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) located in St Austell, Cornwall. Formed in 1976 our club caters for all diver qualifications. We are able to facilitate Try Dives and also provide training to take you right through your qualifications – Ocean Diver, Sports Diver, Dive Leader, Advanced Diver (we also welcome cross overs from PADI qualifications – Open Water, Advanced, Rescue Diver – and other diving organisations). Diving every weekend, members are guaranteed to have an opportunity to advance their diving experience and enjoy the wonderful dive locations situated around St Austell Bay, as well as the north coast (Rock, Hayle) and further west (Penzance, Sennen Cove).
We have a wealth of instructors who are able to offer specialisms, Boat Handling, Radio, Diver Cox and Rebreather training to name but a few.
Diving is our passion, the reefs around our Cornwall shores are alive with sea life (John Dory, Octopus, Cuttlefish, Lobsters, Crabs to name but a few and Dolphins are a regular observer of our divers on shot lines) and we also have some amazing wrecks. We have three RIBS to facilitate our diving and go out every Sunday. All members wanting to dive are accommodated on our Sunday dives. Running alongside this, we also have regular Deep Dives for those more qualified – and these also present an opportunity for members to practice their boat handling and diver cox qualifications in exchange for a beer!
As well as diving, members can enjoy various social activities throughout the year. We meet every Wednesday evening at The White Pyramid, Trewoon. We also attend the legendary Kernow Festival held every year in Penzance. This sees members from all the clubs in Cornwall, some from Devon and some from beyond get together to enjoy a weekend of great diving from Penzance. On the Saturday night clubs take it in turns to host the barbeque for up to 150 people – all to raise funds for the DDRC (Diving Disease Research Centre) in Plymouth who serve our diving community so well. We camp at Cardinney, dive from Penzance and party as much as possible!
So if you are looking to learn to dive, or are qualified and looking for a great group of people to dive with, contact us at www.midcornwalldivers.com
