Dive with us!
« på: januar 26, 2006, 12:02:20 am »
SSDK (Sotra Sportsdykkerklubb) is a non-commercial  scuba diving club located in the outskirt of Bergen on the west coast of Norway. We are more than 50 members and have our own boat “Sjærgårdstrollet”, our own clubhouse and compressor with bank, both for 200 and 300 Bahr.

Location: (EUREF89 sone 32, north: 6697398 east: 278913) We are located on the very edge of the North Sea in Apalvågen 5 min. north of Møvik at Sotra. Aprox. 30 min. by car from Bergen city centre. Driving time from Bergen Airport (BGO) is 40 min. Map, follow this link:

The Diving Experience: We have more than 100 dive sites between 5 and 30 minutes by boat from our clubhouse. The area is dotted with Islands. If a real North Sea dive is desired – it takes only 15 minutes. to pass the coast line into perfect conditions for just such an experience. The dives are for pure leisure, with a little hunting. If you are lucky you will bring with you fish for the pot!

A "standard club dive" is 20 meters maximum depth and 45 minutes dive time. Divers are alowed to do deeper/shorter or shallower/longer dives on Sundays (max 60 minutes), as long as they dive within the no-decompression limits, and have the right certifiction level for the planned dive.

Visibility: We have good visibility more or less all year around. However, late spring and summer can have weeks with lesser visibility due to sea flowering.

Skills: We do not offer any form for diving education or equipment. If you don’t have a buddy you will dive with one of the members of our club. We always dive in pairs.
Most of the members have more than 50 dives in the area.
Please remember to bring your license.
Night dives: Mid October to April Thursday dives are night dives.
Two torches are required.

Equipment: Most of our members use dry-suits all year.
Equipment rental: Follow the link to http://www.nemo.no for detailed information. Nemo is located 20 min from the airport and 30 min. from SSDK. The people at Nemo are a friendly and skilled.
