Cwmtawe Sub-Aqua Club are an affiliated branch of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC), the UK�s governing body for divers and the largest diving club in the world.

Our local branch, number 659, was formed over 30 years ago in 1973, has trained hundreds of members to varying levels of diver grade and still maintains a strong membership.

Although based in Pontardawe, our members are from the general region of the Swansea Valley and meet regularly every Thursday evening at either of our two training venues depending on the time of year.

Our Winter training sessions are held at Pontardawe Swimming Pool between September and April and our Summer training sessions take place between April and September at the Upper Llliw Reservoir in Felindre, which provides an ideal training environment for all levels of diver with a maximum depth of 21 metres.

During the Summer months we also organise group dives at the weekend either to inland dive sites such as the National Diving and Activity Centre in Chepstow, or out at sea from one of our two RIBs off the Gower and Pembrokeshire coast. Club trips abroad to areas such as the Red Sea are a common occurrence as are UK Dive trips which also continue throughout the rest of the year for the most adventurous members!

In addition to the two club RIBs, we also possess our own recently refurbished compressor to provide air fills for members and trainees and we hold adequate equipment and scuba sets for the training of up to twelve novices at any one time. The recent refurbishment of the club compressor enables us to blend Nitrox and Trimix gases for more adventurous and technical diving and we have a limited supply of technical kit to enable practice configurations for any member wishing to progress with their diving skills.

As well as the diving, the club benefits from an excellent social calendar with regular social events and an annual Christmas party. For more info on the latest social activities join our Facebook Group
