BSAC 2655 - Darkside Diving (Redcar) a new club

It was probably late 2023 when a like-minded group of keen divers decided that they wanted to form a club which would offer the benefits of BSAC affiliation but would be driven by divers who dive and dive frequently.

We have a very active diving programme with both night and day shore dives taking place regularly around the South Gare throughout the year, if there is reasonable vis someone will be in diving either during daylight hours or night dives when some of our more interesting creatures come out to play. It’s not just South Gare, our members regularly, have away dives further afield in and around the borders and should prevailing conditions mean that diving in the North Sea is not possible then Wastwater is a regular dive site with others enjoying freshwater cave dives when the saltwater diving is out of the question.

However with the clue in the name a large amount of our weekday diving is at the Gare with Simon acting as our 'eyes on the water' giving very regular updates on conditions via our Whatsapp group. For those venturing further afield you have the Farnes vis record on this site as a guide.

BSAC 2655 - Darkside Diving @ Redcar

We are a new club and as such don’t have a huge amount of assets yet, we intend to grow and as the membership pool grows then we will invest in equipment with our first target being a compressor for club use.

Whilst the club doesn’t own a boat there are active members who will happily take along a buddy pair or two if they are out diving from their personally owned craft. Club members have personal craft at both the South Gare and Fluke Hole at Seahouses, with a little organisation small, private dive trips can be organised to compliment the occasional hard-boat charter that we organise.
