Bolton Area Divers came into existence over 15 years ago as a divers "drop in centre", somewhere to go for advice, air fills and training. At the end of 2003 the current owner closed the business and the associated dive club started to break apart.

At the start of 2004 11 Club members, all with full time jobs, came together to form ‘Bolton Area Divers Limited’. Because of our love of diving the 11 members voluntarily run the non-profit business with the aim of once again providing the ‘drop in centre’ for the local dive community. The business regained PADI 5star status and became a dealer for the major brands of dive equipment that divers believe in and trust. The club has since grown to over 200 paid up members and circulates its monthly newsletter to over 1400 divers. The club dives locally and worldwide so the business is kept busy very with training and sales. A club member can hire a full set of dive equipment for just £25 for 4 days.

The doors are open to all divers BSAC, SSAC, SAA, CMAS, NAUI & TDI (sorry if I left anyone out) who are welcome to use the state of the art training suites and facilities (as long as they replace the tea, coffee and milk).


With the number of trips we organise each year it was inevitable that we became a Scuba Travel Recommended Dive Centre. Enquires from the non diving public are growing weekly, many wish to learn whilst on holiday so a mix and match a package holiday, currently we have the following departures scheduled.

Mistral

Mistral

Escorted by Bolton Area Divers. Mistral is a stable steel liveaboard with all mod cons! Departing from Sharm, you will spend 7 nights on board on a full board basis (twin share cabin). This is a classic itinerary in the Northern Red Sea with up to 21 dives over the week. All marine park fees, 12lt tank and weights are included in your package.

Dates: 11 Jul 2015 - 18 Jul 2015

holiday package £1195

One of the best ways to learn to dive is to complete the pool training and classroom sessions in your local dive centre and then finish off the four open water dives in tropical warm waters. Why spend time in the classroom when you could be diving?

This package includes both parts of the course, course materials, plus flights and accommodation in some of the best places in the world to enjoy your first diving experience.

Home and Away with Camel Dive Centre

There are few names as well known in Sharm as Camel Resort and their dive centre stands out for their excellence, attentive manner and friendly welcome. The original dive centre in Naama Bay has literally decades' of diving experience and local knowledge around Sharm's many dive sites. The team is the very definition of professionalism yet they always manage to combine this with a relaxed atmosphere and careful eye on safety.


Finishing your PADI Open Water course couldn't be easier with Camel. With a whole week to enjoy in the sun and sea and no classroom work left to do, you'll come home not only a newly certified diver but with a few fantastic dives to rave to your friends about as well!

We are returning to Treborth Leisures campsite Nr Bangor this year, some will remember this site from 2013 some despite being there may have fuzzier memories. :) We have Quest Divings boat booked for both Saturday and Sunday. Boat places are limited to 10 people so it is strictly 1st come 1st served and only secure once boat fees of £55 each day have been paid. Boat divers need to be at least Advanced Open Water Qualified, own their own DSMB & Reel and know how to use them. Shore diving in and around the local area will also be arranged suitable for all levels of qualified Divers. We plan to hold a BBQ on the Saturday evening once everyone has returned from their Days Diving so we can all exchange stories with a burger and a beer. This is a camping weekend (camping fees payable on arrival directly to Treborth leisure) so unless you plan to organise your own accommodation you will need a tent and appropriate camping gear. The site has pitches for mobile homes and caravans for those with their own home on wheels (please contact them to book in advance to avoid disappointment if you require this).
