We welcome new starters and qualified divers from all agencies (BSAC, PADI, NAUI, SAA, SSAC etc.)
If you already have a diving qualification then going diving is easy. Whether you trained with BSAC or elsewhere, you are welcome. If you qualified through another agency (PADI, NAUI, SAA, SSAC etc.) there is a simple cross-over arrangement, after which you can dive on your existing qualification. You can go diving and access the full range of the club's facilities, including further training if you wish.
Go here for information (including prices) about joining Stingray Divers.
Go here to see where we dive. Finally, look here to see further training we can offer if you are already qualified.
If you are new to diving and would like to try SCUBA we offer a Try Dive scheme where you can have a go at SCUBA in our swimming pool.
If you are sure you want to join, then you begin with the Ocean Diver course. As an Ocean Diver you will be able to dive to depths of up to 20metres with a qualified buddy. Details of the Ocean Diver course can be found here. PLEASE NOTE: We are very busy and there is a waiting list of a few weeks for try dives and new starters (other than qualified divers).
We share the pool with the university scuba club, so we have a pool session every Thursday in term time only (Start of October to end of June) for actual term dates, see the University Website Term Dates. In summer we are out in the sea!
Social Meeting Places We meet after the pool session on Thursdays, normally from 9pm in the Deramore Arms which is at Main Street, Heslington, York, YO10 5EA. Please email or ring the club before trying to find us in the pub, often we are away diving! Deramore Arms on Google Maps
