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).

Currently all our holidays are full and we are getting our new schedule ready please check back soon for an update.

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.

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!

Event details :-

2015 was the first year BAD did an 'Underwater Pumpkin Carving' Dive. It was so much fun, we are doing it again this year! The dive will be done at Capernwray, in fairly shallow water. It is suitable for all levels of experience. Each group will have at least one experienced diver / member of staff with them, should you have any questions or need any help. You will need to bring your own Pumpkin and cutting tools. You can carve out your design before you arrive if you like (it all helps!)   We will also be having a Halloween-themed dive too. This will again, be suitable for all levels of experience and there will be staff on hand as needed. You are encouraged to get into the Halloween theme by dressing up (over the top of your Drysuit!) We always have lots of fun with that!
