We are based in East Kilbride, but attract members from all over Central Scotland and we dive most weekends – all year round. Did you know that Scotland has one of the best diving environments in the world – and we like to make the most of it!

In addition, C-Divers have an active Dive Calendar most weekends, with shore or boat, wreck or scenic diving on the west and east coasts of Scotland. Also, each year we usually venture abroad once or twice.

For a glimpse of what you can discover in the sea around Scotland, have a look through the slideshow on the left. There's also much more to see on our Picture Gallery.

Our diving is all about enjoyment and safety too, and C-Divers is an independent member of the UK Sub-Aqua Association, which provides certified diving courses and insurance.

We welcome divers with qualifications from any agency including BSAC*, ScotSAC*, PADI*, NAUI*, SSI* and CMAS*. We are fortunate to have a good pool for our training, and because of our facilities and experience, members come from far and wide. You’ll make friends from every walk of life and now over a quarter of our members are female – including three of our instructors.

Join C-Divers today!

All our diver training courses are fully-recognised SAA*, CMAS* and EFR* international courses. We have six full Open Water Instructors and four Club Instructors, so you won’t be short of help and advice.
C-Divers courses are tailored to YOUR needs, with safety and experience paramount.
