Our club meets at Fore Street swimming pool in Ipswich from 7.30pm-9:00pm on Thursdays, and afterwards we are most likely to be found at the Admiral Nelson Pub which is nearby. This is where the real organisation of trips and social events really happens!
We are a friendly local dive club based in Ipswich, Suffolk. We are branch number 32 of the British Sub- Aqua Club (BSAC) which is the national governing body for scuba diving and snorkelling in the UK.
Our experienced members organise dive trips in the UK as well as overseas so we are certain you will find a trip that will be of interest to you. It would be easy to fill this page with all of the things we can do but the best way to get to know us is to arrange a meeting and visit us at the pool.
Want to learn to scuba dive? Scuba diving is an adventure open to anyone aged 10 or over and iDive provides high-quality BSAC training for beginners.
PADI, SSI or another agency qualified? Great! Joining our club is a great way to develop your scuba diving and to simply get out there and enjoy some great diving!
If you have always wanted to learn to dive or are simply curious about scuba diving, then a Try Dive with iDive is the perfect introduction!
In the safe confines of the pool, a BSAC Instructor will introduce you to the basic skills and equipment needed to experience the thrill of breathing underwater for the very first time. Try Dives cost £20.
A typical Try Dive session lasts about 45 minutes. It involves poolside tuition on diving techniques and equipment, followed by a scuba dive in our pool with a BSAC-qualified instructor.Book a Try Dive

We are a friendly club focused on UK diving but also venturing overseas when we can. If you like your diving to be sociable why not come and join us.
Diving around the coast of Britain can be excellent. If you are a qualified diver or thinking of learning, a club like ours is a great place to pursue your interest.
I’ve been diving for many years and can honestly say that our coastal waters offer some of the best wreck diving in the world (when the weather and visibility are on our side!) and exploring it with friends in our club is the best way to enjoy it.
