Welcome to North Wales Sub-Aqua Club

North Wales Sub-Aqua Club (NWSAC) are an affiliate club of the Sub-Aqua Association (SAA Club #136). We offer SCUBA diver training in a friendly, relaxed and professional atmosphere. We are based in Llandudno, North Wales which has some of the UK's best dive sites within easy reach of our club slipway. We follow the SAA motto of being the "friendly divers" and always welcome new members to the club. We have our own fast RIB and air compressor onsite.

Our main focus is on fun and progressive diver training with safety being of paramount importance. You will learn in a structured way at your own pace with instructors who hold internationally recognised qualifications. The emphasis is on safe, thorough training in a friendly club atmosphere with volunteer instructors who provide training for the love of the sport, not for profit. We dive more or less every weekend throughout the year at various locations, which include boat, shore and inland dive sites. We also organise regular trips within the UK and abroad.

We welcome all members of the community including those with disabilities. We have several club members who have attended the Disability Sport Wales UK DIT Course and the club recently received the Disability Sport Wales Insport Ribbon Award. All instructors are DBS checked.

Whether you've yet to experience the underwater world or are a qualified diver already then just come along to one of our club meetings which are held every Sunday evening at 8pm in Llandudno Sailing Club.

North Wales Sub-Aqua Club - Diver Training

NWSAC are able to offer the open water portion of any of the SAA courses in a local dive environment. On occasion NWSAC also organises dive trips abroad. It is during these trips that it may be possible to progress your training still further.

Chris Jones, the Diving Officer and Principal Instructor at NWSAC teaches a wide variety of SAA courses and has a wealth of diving experience and knowledge. It is because of his passion that NWSAC and its instructors are committed to taking that extra step to work with you as much as you need to feel comfortable and confident in your new found diving skills.

Chris’s vision as an instructor, however, is far greater than just providing students with their certifications. He believes that given the opportunity and the personal desire to dive, he can help anyone become a safe and confident diver. His gentle, yet motivational teaching style has been acknowledged by both the Sub-Aqua Association and other diving agencies.

Chris’s experience and reputation has been significant in making him one of North Wales’ most respected and frequently praised recreational dive instructors. He has created a solid base of students that continue to further their dive training with him and prove the point that good training and the ability to meet individual needs is what keeps students diving.
