Learn to dive with iDive

Our club meets at Fore Street swimming pool in Ipswich from 7.30 pm-9:00 pm 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!

Welcome to iDive

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.

Book a Try Dive

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 £25.

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.

  • Run by experienced BSAC-qualified instructors
  • Help save time and money by trying scuba first
  • A great experience that could be the start of something amazing
  • All scuba equipment included

What our members say...

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.

Ian Cross

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.

Alan Beaumont

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.
