Welcome to Apollo SAC

We have a nice blend of both recreational and technical diving members and instructors. We are passionate about safe diving and love our sport. The club has one Rigid Inflatable Boat, fully equipped with VHF radios, echo sounder, electronic navigation and safety equipment. In addition the club has an air compressor, gas boosting and blending equipment for Nitrox and Trimix diving.

New members are always welcome. From complete beginners who want to learn to dive, to experienced divers looking for an active club with a varied dive programme you are welcome to come along for a splash.

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 Apollo SAC 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.
