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 over 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.
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!
See the News page for more information about our activities.
The last few years were challenging, but we did manage to get out diving whenever pandemic and weather permitted. We are looking forward to a full programme of dives throughout the 2023 season, on our own boats and on charters in places like Selsey, Brighton and Swanage.
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 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.
We run monthly pool training sessions throughout the year – on Thursday evenings at 9pm at Haslemere Leisure Centre, followed by a quick drink at the Tavern. We frequently meet up on other Thursday evenings whether at the boatshed (when it’s warm enough), or elsewhere, or via zoom. The Club Diver series of lectures began late in 2022 and continues into 2023.
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.
