Welcome to SSAC

We are a BSAC dive branch (number 0626) based at the Quarry Pool in Shrewsbury.

Members of Shrewsbury Sub Aqua Club have mixed diving abilities, ranging from beginner Ocean Divers to highly skilled Technical Divers, many of whom regularly take part in the calendar of dives and social events frequently organised by the club.

We have a group of friendly and experienced instructors who take our divers through various training courses and qualifications, and there are additional skills development courses such as chart work and boat handling on offer to members.

We have a 5.8 metre rib and our own air compressor available for members to use.


Shrewsbury Sub Aqua Club meet every Thursday night from 7.30pm in the upstairs cafe at The Quarry Pool in Shrewsbury, and afterwards in the Wild Pig pub from around 9pm.

Lectures and pool training all takes place in the Quarry centre, while we visit a wide range of locations to do open water dives.


We normally run beginners courses twice a year. See our courses page for further information about what's involved.
