Club membership

Whether you are a avid diver with years of technical experience, keen to develop your skills with a friendly bunch of like-minded people or are a beginner seeking to take your first plunge into the underwater world you will be a welcome addition to our Club.

LUEC is an inclusive Club with a healthy membership base of over 50 individuals of all ages and water-related experiences. Just over a quarter (28%) of our members are female, which is slightly higher than the national BSAC average. We also have instructors with extensive experience teaching and supporting individuals with physical and learning difficulties and encourage everyone to give it a go!

If you would like to undertake dive (or snorkel) training with us, or join us on one of our many dive related excursions we recommend that you become a member of the Club.

Membership fees

We aim to keep our costs as low as we can to ensure that we are as accessible to as many people as possible. Fees can be paid in one upfront payment or by direct debit, enabling you to spread the cost over a maximum of 10 months. We also offer significantly reduced membership rates for under 18’s and students. Please click here to download a summary of our current membership fees (PDF).
