All about ECSAC

The Club was formed in 1960 making it one of the oldest sports diving clubs in the UK and forms part of the British Sub Aqua Association of Clubs. We are BSAC Branch 100 indicating our early affiliation in the history of BSAC. We are also the largest BSAC club in the North-West.

We have our own purpose built club house, boat room, mini bus, two boats, compressor with Nitrox, training kit and fully licensed bar! Your membership entitles you to use these fantastic facilities and your air fills are also included. See the facilities link for more details.


With our own boats or hiring the services of a local dive boat we regularly run trips to all parts of the country. From the Orkneys to the Isles of Scilly the club has dived many of the most amazing sites in the UK and if you fancy something a bit warmer then we go there too!

If you’re BSAC qualified then you can start diving with us as soon as you like. If you’ve qualified under a different system we offer cross-over courses to cater for individuals who wish to dive in the club based system that BSAC offers.
