Can I SCUBA dive at BMSC?

If you wish to SCUBA dive as part of your academic study, you must consult the Diving and Safety Officer (diving@bamfieldmsc.com) well in advance of your arrival. You must be checked out before conducting any SCUBA research and are required to abide by BMSC diving safety standards.  NOTE: There is no recreational diving through the BMSC, however there is a company in town that offers recreational dive charters.

Please read the BMSC dive policy. Skin and SCUBA diving at BMSC can only be undertaken for research or educational purposes, i.e. no recreational diving. Course projects involving SCUBA require prior approval. A qualified surface attendant is mandatory on all dives. Divers must pass a dive checkout with the BMSC Diving and Safety Officer who also assigns locker space in the dive facility. Please label all personal equipment.
