Safety is of paramount importance to everyone here at The Bude Dive Club and as a club member you will have access to high quality training and safety equipment. When you experience the exhilaration of diving off of North Cornwall’s spectacular coastline, you will do so with knowledge of some of the best diving equipment available.
Our Club owns it’s very own air compressor which is the only one in the area. Fully tested, insured and capable of filling cylinders to 230 bar.
Club members, once trained, have 24 hour use of this facility for which they pay a minimal charge for each fill.
With the nearest compressors being at Plymouth, Exeter or Newquay it’s a great perk of membership.
And if you don’t use it, you don’t pay for it.
The club owns and runs a Humber 5.5m rib. Fitted with a 90hp outboard, state-of-the-art GPS navigation and Sonar Echo systems, a comprehensive array of essential safety equipment including VHF radio, Flares and lighting.
The club has a range of scuba equipment that’s dedicated to pool training, it may however be used in the sea after a full service.
Lectures are enhanced by digital multimedia presentation, and First Aid training is made as realistic as possible with the aid of modern resuscitation manikins.
