Stirling Sub Aqua Club

We're a branch of the Scottish Sub-Aqua Club, the governing body for Scuba Diving in Scotland

Membership Overview

Stirling Sub Aqua Club is a branch of the Scottish Sub Aqua Club (ScotSAC). ScotSAC develop the training courses, provides all our training material and carries the third party liability insurance.

Stirling Sub Aqua is one of the biggest and most active diving clubs in Scotland with many branch and regional instructors. A large and active membership also means that there are always dives (either training, shore or boat) most weeks. The club meets up at The Peak Leisure centre in Stirling every Thursday evening, followed by a social get together at the Birds and Bees in Stirling.

To become a member you need to join ScotSAC and Stirling Sub Aqua Club. Just contact us for more details.
