We accept novices and already-qualified divers alike. If you’ve never dived before then check out our try dives. If you’ve qualified with a non-BSAC agency then check out the cross-over page.

Regardless, start your underwater adventure by following these three easy steps. Any questions, then get in contact.

1. Register online with OUUEG

Fill in our online registration form.

Pay for your OUUEG membership (and training package if applicable) by using your debit or credit card using the ‘Pay by PayPal’ link’. You don’t need a PayPal account to pay. You can select ‘Pay by Debit or Credit Card’ and pay for your shopping cart using your card details as normally when shopping online. We really appreciate you paying online – it saves us a lot of admin work. If you have no way of providing a debit or credit card, please read our alternative payment instructions.

OUUEG Student Membership is £39 and Full Membership is £72. More options are available in the online registration form; please choose the most suitable one for you.

2. Register online with BSAC

In addition to the membership with our club OUUEG, you also need to be a member of BSAC, the national governing body of recreational diving in the United Kingdom.

You can register your BSAC membership on the BSAC membership website  by clicking “Join via club” and searching for OUUEG.

Make sure you fill out the Medical Declaration Form also online during the registration process on BSAC.com. If you answered “yes” to any of the questions, you must seek advice from a medical referee before you dive.

You may need additional paperwork to dive. Please find more information about this including an up-to-date list of medical referees at the BSAC Medical Matters pages. You can also contact our Diving Officer for further info.

But don’t worry – the doctor can certify you as fit for diving unless there is a change in your medical condition. In practice, you’d probably only need to see the referee once and then submit a self-declaration every year alongside that initial certificate authorising you to do so.[/idea]

You are not insured to scuba dive with OUUEG until you provide us with a medical certificate.

BSAC membership fee is £31.50 for Student Members and £60 for Full Diving Members. Advanced Divers or Instructors might pay cheaper BSAC rates.
