Hello and a warm welcome to Southsea Sub Aqua Club, my name is Martin Davies and I am the Diving Officer for the club. My role is to oversee all diving activities that the club does and to ensure that the dives we do as a club are done in a safe and consistent manner in line with our governing body’s “Safe diving practices”. The British Sub Aqua Club has very high standards and we train long and hard to make us some of the best divers in the world. I am a big advocate of training and diving within the club environment, put simply it is the best way to learn and enjoy you’re diving. The club offers many facilities whether you are just starting out or a hardened diver of many years. There is a structured dive schedule which has something for every diver in the club, you can choose how many dives you want to do and how much you want to participate within the club. The more you put in the more you get out; it’s a simple fact of life. You will meet a lot of likeminded people in the club who are passionate and enthusiastic about going diving, I started diving in 1977 at the tender age of 14 and have never looked back.
I have seen some spectacular sights and possibly been where no man or woman has ever gone before; I love the thought of exploration in the seas and oceans of this world we live in. Make the most of it:
“One life - dive it”!
