The information below explains the entry procedure for Gildenburgh Water.


For Health and Safety and insurance purposes, Gildenburgh Water maintains a daily roster of all divers using the dive site.

Immediately upon arrival, you must check in for diving. No unloading of kit, kitting up or diving is to take place without the diver having checked in beforehand.

The following details will be required:

  • MEM – Membership number (if you are a current member)
  • NAME (PRINT) – Diver’s full name printed
  • CERT – Diver’s qualification
  • CLUB/BUDDY – Full name of buddy (if diving privately) or name of club/dive school (if a marshalled dive)
  • TIME – Time of arrival
  • M/NM/R – Payment of the appropriate dive fee (member or casual diver or registration)

The checking in process is your own responsibility. Each diver must complete the signing-in form individually, clearly and legibly and pay their own dive fee. Gildenburgh Water staff will not accept divers signing in anyone else apart from themselves or paying for a “block” of unnamed divers. Dive schools wishing to use Gildenburgh Water must clearly advise their students of the individual diver check-in and dive fee payment process.

Conditions of diving are clearly stated on the checking-in sheet. Please ensure that you read them and agree to them.

Gildenburgh Water management and staff reserve the right to check divers’ qualifications, so proof of diver qualification must always be brought to the dive site.


After parking please check in at the main reception in the Club House. Gildenburgh management and staff may vary at reception, depending on the day and time, as well as the volume of divers. If there is no-one at reception when you arrive, ring the bell above the bar.
