The Bahrain Yacht Club (BYC) has announced the signing of an agreement with Scuba Life Dive Centre to run the watersports within the club. Under its ‘Aqua by Scubalife’ brand, Scubalife will offer a wide range of professional training qualifications for adults and children in diving, power boating, PWC (Jet Skis) and sailing. It will also provide members and their guests the opportunity to rent equipment, enjoy thrilling water toys and enjoy boat charters, adventures and trips.

In addition, Scubalife will manage the BYC’s weekly racing program.

Khaled Hejres, the Commodore of the BYC commented, “When most people think of boating, they tend to think of the BYC. What many people don’t realise is that we are a leading educator in sailing, watersports ability and marine safety and have invested considerable time in teaching children to sail through our schools programmes". He added, “Scubalife is one of Bahrain’s leading companies in providing a full range of water-based activities and its local knowledge make it a first-choice provider for beginners and professionals alike.“

Mr. Mohamed Aljasim, the Managing Director of Scubalife commented, “Following the successful launch of our Aqua by Scubalife brand in Al-Dar Islands, we believe that the BYC is the most logical partner. We aim to build empowerment for people who commit to learning new skills either on or under the water and the BYC is the right partner for that. Our team members include instructors that are qualified by PADI and the RYA, and we ensure that every team member is Emergency First Response qualified, to ensure the safety of all joining in the activities.”

Together, the BYC and Scubalife are able to provide a custom-made package to suit your needs whether you are an experienced fisherman, diver, sailor or are simply looking to enjoy the thrill of watersport activities.

The watersports centre will also rent kayaks, stand up paddleboards, loungers and beach games, so if people just want to spend a quiet afternoon in the BYC, they can do so.
