  • Tyneside 114 BSAC

    Welcome to Tyneside 114. We are a small friendly BSAC dive club based in the North East of England. The club meets at Dunston public swimming pool on a Monday night 6:45pm onwards. We also meet at the Moulders Arms in Birtley on a Monday night at 8:30pm.

    We offer a range of training opportunities, depending upon the demands of the membership, as well as train a small number of complete beginners. The club has a number of advanced instructors who are also active in the Regional BSAC training scheme, and the Regional Expedition Scheme (REDS).

    Interests amongst the membership are varied, with individuals involved in underwater photography, archaeology and a growing band of rebreather enthusiasts. More recently we are pleased to have seen an increase in female membership, many of whom now play a prominent role in the running of the club.

    We also welcome members who have trained with other dive agencies, but are looking to meet other dive enthusiasts within a 'club atmosphere' rather than a commercial operation. We can offer relevant 'swop over' training, which will enhance individuals dive skills as well as give them a good introduction to the club.

    The North East coast line offers some of the best diving opportunities in the UK, whether its wreck diving off the Tyne, diving with seals off the Farne Islands or exploring the u/w scenery off St Abb's. The club dives locally most weekends, weather and sea conditions permitting, either from local hard boats or from one of the club's own RIB's.

    We also have organised trips to other areas of the UK, such as the West Coast of Scotland, Scilly Isles, as well as trips abroad to places like the Red Sea or Gozo.

    If you live locally, are keen to either learn to dive or are an experienced diver seeking to join a friendly and active dive club, then look through our web pages and make use of the contact details to arrange a visit to see us.
