Do you ever wonder what it would be like to explore an ancient shipwreck up close? Members of the Cardigan Sub Aqua Club swim with fish and explore coastal shipwrecks nearly every weekend in Cardigan Bay and around the Pembrokeshire coast.

There are hundreds of shipwrecks along the coast of Wales, many of them just offshore. The wrecks include cargo ships and naval vessels, some with the cargo and guns still clearly visible on board.

Sea life abounds in coastal waters. Club members experience close up encounters with lobsters, crabs, sea anemones, fan coral and a range of fish.

The club organises trips further afield to Anglesey, Plymouth and even to the Red Sea. Open to members from 12 years old, with no upper age limit, SCUBA diving in a club setting is a unique and sociable way to enjoy coastal waters. Families take part through numerous club sponsored camping weekends and barbeques.

Club diving offers a convenient way to get started exploring the undersea world. The club has all the equipment and qualified staff needed for beginners to start their training. Training starts in the pool, and continues in nearby waters.

Once qualified as a diver, you can continue further by developing skills in boat handing, underwater photography and much more!

Cardigan Sub Aqua Club are offering a taste of what it’s all about. Every Tuesday evening in April at 8pm they are running a Try Dive at the Newcastle Emlyn swimming pool. Listen to a talk about sub aqua adventures, then put on diving equipment and get into the pool with a qualified instructor. Experience the sensation of breathing underwater and the relaxation of weightlessness.
