Furness Diving Club was formed in the mid 50s. With just a few founder members, doing their early basic training in Cavendish dock. They carried on in the depths of winter using only jeans and woolly jumpers to protect them from the cold (brrrrrrr).
Furness Diving Club is a branch of British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC). The club today runs with a nucleus of about 45 members, the membership coming from all walks of life, all with the common interest in going diving.
We’d Love you to join us!
We meet at Life Leisure Barrow Park, Greengate St, Barrow-in-Furness on Tuesdays @7pm ready to dive in at 7.30pm
“Come & Dive with friends.”

My 12 year old Son and friend went along on Tuesday night for a Try Dive. Thoroughly enjoyed it. All the instructors were brilliant with them, gave one to one training and loads of encouragement. Would recommend this if you are thinking of trying diving.
