Sub-Aqua

Sub AquaThe West Cumbria Branch of the British Sub-Aqua and have access to excellent facilities and opportunities to dive in the UK and abroad.

Sub-Aqua ClubYou might choose diving because you are interested in marine life, or visiting ship wrecks, or underwater photography, or cave diving, or ice diving or much more. However the best way to decide if it is for you is to come and try it! [Try-Dives are not available for those under 18).  

Our Try-Dives are held at Egremont Swimming Pool and all you would need would be your swimming kit and maybe a tee shirt. Try Dives are charged at £10 to cover our costs and it is our policy in West Cumbria BSAC that you would get the best experience we can offer you in the time.

Try-DivesWe think you should think about one of our no obligation Try Dives now so that if diving is for you then you can start training in time to be in open water as the weather improves.  If it is for you then we will take you through the full details of membership and start getting you diving. Egremont Swimming Pool (available due to the generosity of SASAR) is simply the best pool in Cumbria to learn to dive. After theory and pool lessons you would progress to open water diving in Wastwater which is one of the best places in the UK for training and it is free!

During your training you would benefit from the free use of branch kit. Once you qualify you might go sea diving anywhere in the country using our new 6.2m Rigid Inflatable Boat (partly funded by SASRA and Awards for All) which comes complete with all the latest equipment for your safety and comfort.  Of course it would not be long before you were asking for the opportunity to learn to Cox the boat. We also have the best breathing gas facilities in the area which we would be teaching you to use.

We also offer ‘experience’ Try Dives but they are not available for groups or children.

Club Contact Details

All requests for Try Dives should be directed to Colin Robson 07587008547 who can discuss availability and any other matters.

We hope to see you soon.
