About Us

Clydebank Sub Aqua Club is a Branch of the Scottish Sub Aqua Club (www.scotsac.com) which was formed in 1953 and is the Governing Body for Sports Diving in Scotland.


Clydebank Sub Aqua Club started in 1961 and is based in the heart of Clydebank, famous for its Ship Building and Maritime past. In fact, the Clydebank Leisure Centre, where we provide basic training in the pool, was built on the site of the John Brown Ship yards.

There is a wealth of knowledge and experience in Clydebank Sub Aqua Club. Many members have completed hundreds of dives in Scotland and other places throughout the world and under many varied conditions. 

Where are we?

Clydebank Sub Aqua Club  has its pool training sessions in the comfortably warm 25 metre pool at the Clydebank Leisure Centre, which was opened in April 2017. It is situated on the site of the John Brown shipyard on the River Clyde.

Scuba diving equipment is brought from our club rooms in another part of Clydebank. Instructors assist their trainees in preparing the gear for pool training activities, whilst other members may pound up and down the pool to keep dive fit. 

The locker/changing room area is unisex and the showers are invitingly hot.

If you fancy taking up scuba diving, we look forward to welcoming you to Clydebank Sub Aqua Club. If you’d like to join us, just come along on any Wednesday evening. The pool sessions run from 8pm until 9pm. You could enjoy a free "Try-Dive" to see if this activity is for you. Don't forget to bring swim wear and a towel.

Go to Reception, tell them you are looking for the sub aqua club. They will direct you to the changing area. Don't get changed in to swim wear at this stage. Just come through the changing area, remove your outdoor foot wear and make your way to the deep end of the pool. We’ll be there!!!
