BAREG’s membership is composed of sport and technical divers and many members are avocational marine archaeologists with formal training and certification from the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS). Several of Blue Octopus Scuba's staff and customers are also members of BAREG.
For the past five years BAREG has organized archaeological surveys in collaboration with NOAA's Monitor National Marine Sanctuary and UNC's Coastal Studies Institute. Additionally, BAREG organizes recreational type dive trips from German submarine U-1105 in the Potomac River, to Bell Island, Newfoundland, Canada, site of only u-boat attack on North American continent, to Scapa Flow, Scotland, where Germany's World War One fleet was scuttled.
BAREG is a separate training organization but will be using Blue Octopus Scuba's classroom and pool to conduct their training. Their training focuses on providing advanced recreational specialties and technical courses. All BAREG students must become BAREG members.
