Welcome to Haslemere Sub Aqua Club

Welcome

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 warmly welcome members who are relatively new to diving, as well as experienced divers from any agency. We’re an open, friendly club – 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!

Diving

The past two years were no normal years, but we did manage a few socially-distanced dive outings, as weather and lockdowns permitted.  We have a full and varied plan for the 2022 diving season to make up for lost time underwater!  

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 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 Portland.  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 destinations such as the Red Sea, Turkey and Indonesia.

Skill development

Since September 2021 we’ve been 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 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.
