Planned Events

Plymouth Sound BSAC meet every Monday evening from 8.30pm onwards. During the spring and summer, we meet at the Mount Batten Centre Bar but, during the winter, we meet at the Borringdon Arms in Turnchapel. The second Monday of each month is our Committee meeting and so reverts to the Mount Batten Centre.

Dives usually take place every weekend, and there are additional dives arranged midweek during the Summer months.
