The training base is located in Jiangjiayuan in Zhongliang Town in Shapingba District. It has a water area of over 20,000 square meters, a maximum depth of 40 meters, visibility of 6-10 meters, and an average water surface temperature of around 25-30 degrees Celsius between June and October. The base has eight diving instructors and one divemaster who all hold national diving instructor certificates.

The club provides four kinds of service: international diver certification, domestic- and foreign-theme diving tours, diving equipment sales and maintenance, and diving photography.

“We will introduce water sports such as kayaking to make it a base that provides diving experience and water amusement, and that brings fun to more residents,” added a club representative.
