In addition to these, Club members are more than welcome (and encouraged) to plan their own trips and head off for a few days diving, maybe to see somewhere new. Don’t forget though, that ALL trips need to be planned and ALL need the approval of the Diving Officer. To get started on your trip email the President and Diving Officer who will be more than happy to help!
There is more information within the club rules and regulations avaliable on the SU website, however here is a quick overview of the key rules that must be adhered to when planning a trip:
TRIP PLANNING GUIDE
Within the club rules and regulations is the Trip Planning guide. This covers all of what you need to follow when you plan your trip! If you have any questions get in touch with the committee or an experienced member of the club to help you out!
There is also a summer trip planning checklist available below, the checklist has been put together as an aid to those running a summer trip but most of the information is equally applicable to any trip.
