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 survey prgramme for 2014 is now well under way and the remaining dives are shown in bold type below. There may be more in the planning stage. Contact the organiser using the link for each event for further information and bookings.
