Welcome to Haslemere Sub Aqua Club
Haslemere Sub Aqua Club is a friendly scuba diving and social club with around 25 members. We have been active in Haslemere in Surrey for 50 years, having started in 1971. We hope that Covid may allow us to celebrate this milestone later in the year.
We warmly welcome members who are new to diving, as well as experienced divers from any agency. We’re an open, friendly bunch – do come and join us.
Pandemics aside, 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!
2020 was no normal year, but we managed a few socially-distanced dive outings when conditions allowed. Our much anticipated first planned dives of 2021 were weathered off, but the diving season is now underway.
We own two Club boats, fully kitted out for diving. The larger is kept 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 normally 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 (Rigid Inflatable Boats) or charter hardboats, and occasionally dive from the shore.
We also organise trips to warmer waters overseas, including the Red Sea, Turkey and Indonesia.
Finally from September we’re back to our monthly pool sessions, after 18 months on hold due to Covid. We have pool training sessions on one Thursday each month – at 9pm at Haslemere Leisure Centre – and meetings at the boatshed, or via zoom on the other Thursday evenings.
We train new divers once they have a basic open water qualification. Our experienced instructors help you build your skills and confidence in a relaxed and friendly environment in the pool and out on dives. The Sub Aqua Association qualifications you gain are recognised around the world. Do get in touch and come and meet us.
