Sub Aqua Club
and your window to the underwater world!
Clydebank Sub Aqua Club pool sessions have restarted for the late summer and Autumn programme. On 15th August we invited club members to bring along family and friends to have a swim or a "Try-Dive" in the pool. The atmosphere was lively and noisy with around 35 participants in the pool.
Clydebank Sub Aqua Club sessions start at 8pm every Wednesday evening at the Clydebank Leisure Centre. Whether you are an "old hand" or new to scuba diving, you are welcome to come along and see us. Diving Officer John Morgan and his team, offer training throughout the year. You are never too old and it is never too late to enjoy the excitement and wonder of the underwater world. So why not join us at Clydebank Sub Aqua Club or contact the secretary for more details.

Around the coast of Scotland, the water is fantastic!! Scotland's seas are full of many varieties of colourful life. From the delicate, sensitive Fan-worm to colourful Cuckoo Wrasse and Ballan Wrasse to wary lobsters and inquisitive Seals. There are the wrecks of Scapa Flow in the north covered now in marine life, the amazing submarine tunnels and gulleys around St. Abbs and Eyemouth in the south-east, the Moray Firth in the north-east with its whales and dolphins which you might be lucky enough to see, the rugged and fjord-like sea lochs on the west coast where you can nearly always dive regardless of the weather and then there are the Western Isles such as Jura, Skye, Mull, Coll, Tiree, Rhum, Eigg and Muck and finally but by no means least-St.Kilda. Take a look at the photos on the website and see what you have been missing and what you have to look forward to.
You've probably seen amazing underwater documentaries on the TV made by Sir David Attenborough, Paul Rose, Monti Halls, or if you are a more mature person!, Jacques Cousteau and Hans & Lotte Hass films. You might have thought: "I'd like to try that!" Well believe it or not, the waters around Scotland are full of colour and life. Now you have the chance to join in and see this colour and variety under the sea for yourself. Clydebank Sub Aqua Club will teach you to dive in a safe, controlled manner. You will learn all the skills necessary to enjoy exploring the underwater scenery around Scotland. Divers in Clydebank Sub Aqua Club regularly dive in Loch Long, Loch Fyne, Loch Leven, the Sound of Jura, the Sound of Mull, the Oban area. The east coast around Eyemouth and St Abbs are also fantastic diving areas. We also have the wrecks of the German High Seas Fleet in Scapa Flow, Orkney, and further north still, the amazing Shetland Islands. Of course it doesn't end there. Having learned these skills you can explore other great diving areas of the World, such as the Caribbean Sea, the Maldives, the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, the Far East and the Australian Great Barrier Reef plus many other exciting places.
Almost all of the photographs on this website have been taken in Scottish waters.
