Are you living in, or visiting Kuwait? If you are already a qualified diver, why not come out with our well-established club? If you want to learn to dive, we can also offer training. Please explore the site through the links on the left. We look forward to hearing from you.

Oliver Gardner, Chairman for 2012-2014

Welcome to the Kuwait Mantas Diving Club; an overseas branch of the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC). Last year we celebrated the 35th anniversary of the founding of the club and in 2013 we celebrate 35 years as BSAC branch number 1045. We continue to thrive as a club and look forward to another great year.

As a club we welcome both BSAC members or those from any recognised training agency. If you do become a BSAC member you can take advantage of our training which we run throughout the year. And we run regular courses for those wishing to learn to dive.

An important part of the club are our regular social activities. Every Tuesday a member takes a turn to host a social. This is a great place to meet other divers and like-minded people. Other regular events for club members and friends are held throughout the year.

Brian Gilding, Diving Officer for 2013-2015

Diving in Kuwait can vary from bright shallow reefs to more challenging drift dives and deeper, darker explorations, weather permitting. From Khiran, where our boat Mantas III is kept, we can access most sites within an hour of leaving shore. Wildlife to be seen in Kuwait waters includes turtles, corals, schools of small barracuda, the occasional whale-shark (allegedly!), and a fantastic array of reef fish, including several species of sting ray and some *very* big puffer fish. So, what are you waiting for? Letís get diving!

Much of the organizing of dives and training is done at the weekly social, but if that is not convenient just email the Expeditions Officer.
