Welcome to Haslemere Sub Aqua Club

Welcome

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 over 45 years in the town.

We warmly welcome trainees, as well as experienced divers from any agency. Do come and join us.

Sunday 14 May 2017 – Haslemere Festival – HSAC Open Morning at Haslemere Pool – come and have a go! Book at Haslemere Hall or take your chance!

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!

Diving

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.

Training

Our 2017 monthly pool training sessions began on 5th January, and are continuing on the first Thursday evening of each month at 9pm at Haslemere Leisure Centre. On the other 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. Please get in touch to book a try dive, or simply come and visit us for a chat about training or joining us as a qualified diver.

HSAC Pool Training

We are part of the Sub Aqua Association, following a programme which leads to qualifications recognised around the world. Gaining experience and confidence with one of our experienced instructors, we have an emphasis on safety and enjoyment.
