Putney Sub-Aqua Club is a friendly diving & social club based in South West London. We welcome people new to the sport or divers who want to renew their love of diving.
Learn to Dive
We offer a ‘Try Dive’ in our training pool at Putney Leisure Centre for anyone wanting to try scuba diving. This costs only £25 with no further obligations.
If you are keen to carry on learning and want to become a new member of the club then this cost is deducted from your first annual membership fee.
All our training is arranged at cost. You will be trained by a team of volunteers so learning to dive with us is as cost effective as possible.
Return to Diving
If you are keen to renew your enthusiasm for scuba diving then you’ll find our talented instructors are always keen to help.
Putney Sub-Aqua Club is a BSAC club which means all our instructors are volunteers and do it for the love of the sport. We are a non-commercial club run for the benefit of our members.
We organise diving trips throughout the UK and abroad throughout the year. All costs are shared so this is the cheapest way to dive and share your love of the undersea world.
Meet New Friends
The club meets Tuesday evenings for training or you and your immediate family are able to swim in pool area. Members then meet for a drink and some snacks at our club venue on the banks of the Thames.
Members also have access to our own diving boat which can accommodate 6 divers comfortably and a Coxswain. If our boat isn’t seen on the South Coast you might just have seen us out for a spin on the river.
As well as organised dive trips both here and abroad we also have a full calendar of social events. What’s not to like?

You can’t possibly get blown out in the Red Sea, right?
Yes, a slight exaggeration – we didn’t miss any dives, but the itinerary had to be altered to account for the strong winds.
The trip started in the Marriott hotel in Hurghada (some making use of an extra days’ annual leave to relax before boarding the boat) where we departed on Saturday morning, heading north for a check dive before reaching Abu Nuhas.
Shaa’b Abu Nuhas is a great place for wreckies given the 4 wrecks which crashed into the reef at various points. Over the next day/two days the 4 we dived the Chrisoula K, Carnatic and of course the Ghiannis D (a picture that most divers will have seen before). Some hectic rides out on the tenders but worth it for the dives. (Read more)
