Seasearch Diving

Seasearch dives are organised by Seasearch local coordinators and a number of the participating organisations. We list all of the dives we know about below but you can also contact local Seasearch Contacts for your area for the latest information.

You need to be a qualified diver before you can take part in Seasearch organised dives. Minimum qualifications are BSAC Sports Diver, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, SAA Club Diver or CMAS 2 Star equivalent. You need to have done at least 20 dives of which 10 should have been in temperate sea water. You will also need to have a diving medical certificate or a Sports Diver medical self-declaration and have 3rd party diving insurance.  Preference is always given to those who have attended Seasearch courses.

Seasearch is not a diver training organisation and we insist that you do not dive beyond your previous level of experience on our dives. For some dives there may be higher experience levels required, depending on the likely conditions.

The organised dive survey prgramme for 2015 is now completed with over 75 dives planned (though of course some were lost to weather conditions), However, many Seasearchers will continue to dive and record throughout the winter where conditions allow.

There will be a new survey programme for 2016 and the first dates to emerge are listed below. There will be many more to come in other areas. If you would like to host a Seasearch dive please contact National Coordinator Chris Wood to get your dive added to the list.
