Divetech supports a wide range of diving abilities, from our newly trained club divers, through more experienced air and nitrox divers to seasoned extended range, trimix and rebreather divers. The type of diving we organise as a club reflects this rich variety of talent and ability.

There are divers out most weekends & we organise social events for members, families and friends.

We usually meet up in a central Edinburgh pub on the second Tuesday evening of every month. Please check out our dive calendar for details.

Divetech offers scuba training from beginner to advanced levels. All training is carried out within the club by our friendly instructors. Scuba training is not necessarily expensive or difficult. It is a lot of fun.

Getting Started

Even if you’ve never put you head under water before, you can learn to dive with Divetech. To get you started we offer training to the BSAC initial qualification of Ocean Diver. This involves a short lecture course, training in a swimming pool, and finally carefully supervised diving in ‘open’ water.

Joining the Ocean Diver training with Divetech will cost in the region of £300, and can depend on the number of students and the venue costs. This includes all training materials, classroom and pool training, BSAC and Divetech membership and kit hire (excluding drysuit). For full details about training with Divetech, please get in touch using the contact page.
