I have been a member of this club for over about 8 years after joining from another club. It's a super club - own club house, own rib, lots of members - all very friendly. I fitted in straightaway. Quite a bit of diving and there's social side too. I've made some good friends there too. It’s a big part of my life.
My brother and I have been members of this great club for combined total of 74 years. A friendly and active club with all the facilities necessary to explore the awesome underwater world. Our motto is ‘Adventure before dementia’, So don’t delay start your adventure.
Great Club! So friendly and helpful.
I fell in love with scuba diving while learning with this club. So much so that my 3 children are now learning to dive.
A fantastic club -very welcoming, brilliant instructors and a very professional manner. Welcoming whether you are interested in a try dive, learning to dive for a holiday or taking up UK diving. Always great advice. Highly recommended.
Great place to learn to dive. Fantastic people, no one’s paid, everyone is there for their love of diving.
