Snorkelling

Learn new skills with
Buxton’s only snorkelling club.

Open water snorkelling at Capernwray with Buxton Black Sheep.

We are the only High Peak based snorkelling and scuba diving club based right here in Buxton, Derbyshire. We’re a BSAC branch which means you get all the great training you’d expect; all underpinned by a great sports governing body. We offer the following BSAC snorkel training programmes.

Dolphin Snorkeller course.
This course is aimed at younger children and introduces snorkelling via a series of seven progressive fun in water sessions.

Snorkel Diver course.
There are classroom sessions to teach the theoretical knowledge of snorkelling, coupled with practical lessons in the pool or in sheltered water.

All our training is delivered both in Buxton Pool and at various outdoor locations by qualified BSAC and PADI qualified instructors – all designed to develop confidence and skills ideal for water safety.

We also offer a unique progression programme for children, taking them from snorkelling to scuba diving through experience in the pool when younger and finally to BSAC’s first diver qualification, ‘Ocean Diver’ at age 12.

We like to think of it as your club as well as ours.

If you’d like to learn to snorkel, are already an expert yourself or would like to be an instructor then this club is definitely for you.

Parents and children very welcome.

Buxton Black Sheep Dive Club was set up by divers who had children who wanted to learn to snorkel and dive.
