Dive agency BSAC is organising an archaeological expedition to the Croatian coast this autumn.

This trip will be the third, following successful expeditions back in 2007 and 2009.

It is being organised in conjunction with the West Midlands Regional Expedition Scheme (REDS). The third expedition is set to run from 25th September to 2nd October 2011.

To take part, you’ll need to be qualified to a minimum level of Sports Diver (or equivalent) and pay for the trip yourself.

Keen amateurs are encouraged to complete the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) Introduction to Foreshore and Underwater Archaeology, although it is not essential. BSAC says if there is sufficient interest, an NAS course may be arranged specifically for expedition divers, at Stoney Cove or a similar venue.

The expedition will be based in Korcula and will be supported by Dupin Dive Centre. They will provide an expedition diving package including air fills, cylinder and weight belt hire, boats and dive support. The ten dive / five day package costs approximately 240 pounds. Twin bed / non-ensuite accommodation will costs 84 quid per person for seven nights.

BSAC stresses this will be no picnic. Participants should expect long days and a demanding schedule, as well as fun and uncovering the history of Croatia.

Interested divers should email west.midlands.coach@bsac.com with their current qualifications, diving and archaeological experience, and why they’d like to take part.
