Who we are

Swale Divers is branch no 787 of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BS-AC). We are a relatively small club with around 40 members, but we are very friendly and very active. We are based in North Kent on the Isle of Sheppey.  We have a diverse range members from across Kent, ranging in age from 14 to 75+ and experience levels from absolute beginners to instructors with 40+ years experiences.

The club has just celebrated its 38h Anniversary.  The club is lucky enough to still have two of it's founder members, Roy Povey (Honorary Diving Officer) and Nigel Woolley.

The club has a collection of its own equipment to help beginners on through their initial training. The club also has a fully equipped 6m Rigged Inflatable Boat (RIB) which provides an ideal diving platform to allow us to make the most of diving in our waters.

We aim to dive  most weekends from March to November. We dive mostly along the South Coast from Dover to Bognor Regis to Dorset to Cornwall.  We have day dives to sites in Kent and Sussex. We also arrange three or four weekends away each year to Dorset, Devon and Cornwall. Once a year we also dive further a fields. Recent holidays have included Belize, Gozo, Ireland and the Red Sea, The Scilly Isles and the Maldives.
