Welcome to Haslemere Sub Aqua Club
Haslemere Sub Aqua Club is a friendly scuba diving, training and social club with around 30 members. We have been active in Haslemere in Surrey since 1971, so we are celebrating our 45th year this year.
We warmly welcome beginners, as well as experienced divers from any agency. Do come and join us.
An important part of the Club is our programme of social events, where non-diving partners, family and friends can join members at summer barbecues, mountain bike rides, Christmas dinners, quiz evenings, and much more.
Diving is so much better when you’re among friends!
You can read our newsletter Fish Tales, see the News page, or visit our Facebook page for more information about our activities.
We own two Club RIBs, fully kitted out for diving. The larger is kept moored up on the south coast during the summer, readily accessible for getting out on dives around Sussex and the Isle of Wight whenever the weather allows. The smaller boat is based in our boatshed in Haslemere all year, ready for action locally or further afield.
We run a full programme of dives throughout the summer, from local dives on the south coast and inland training lakes to a variety of destinations further afield around the UK, like the Farne Islands, Porthkerris and Scapa Flow. We use our own RIBs or charter hardboats, and occasionally dive from the shore.
We also organise trips to warmer waters overseas, including the Red Sea, Turkey and South Africa.
Our first series of 2016 pool training sessions ended in June with some great underwater photography practice. Please get in touch to book a try dive or a place in the next intake of trainees for our next training series. We’re now into our annual summer-autumn programme. On Thursday evenings we meet at Churt Club to socialise and for lectures or workshops on photography, photo editing, fish identification, dive planning or other topics that catch our interest.
We are part of the Sub Aqua Association, following the training programme which leads to qualifications recognised around the world. Training with one of our experienced instructors, you progress through at your own pace, with emphasis placed on safety and enjoyment.
During training courses, we meet at the Haslemere Leisure Centre in Kings Road on Thursday evenings at 8:45pm. At other times, we meet at the Churt Club or elsewhere for lectures or other events.
