North Dorset Sub Aqua Club

About us


Hello! We are North Dorset sub aqua club and actively enjoy exploring the underwater world of our Jurassic coastline. We welcome already qualified divers from all agencies and those looking to learn to dive . Non-diving partners are welcome to pool nights and many social events.


With around 40 members of mixed age and ability we are a small friendly bunch who dive locally but also venture away to other destinations both in the UK and overseas. Members interests vary from marine life and photography to deep wrecks and some technical diving.


Each year we take a small number of novices to complete the BSAC Ocean diver training and the opportunity to continue to higher levels and specialist qualifications. Although the club does not own its own boat we have excellent access and relationships with the local dive skippers out of Poole, Swanage & Weymouth and we often venture down to Chesil cove, Portland for  shore dives.


You will find us every Thursday from 8:30pm at Clayesmore school pool for training and general swimming, then to the "Cricketers" public house at Shroton from 9:30pm for dive banter and beer


Our dive club was founded in 1977 to bring together divers and their families of every level  and interest of  all ages to have fun, talk and organise dives and social events with each other. This is your opportunity to meet new friends with similar interests. – we’re always happy to welcome new members to our club. Drop in and see us – we’d love to meet you!
