What We Offer
Early Bird Renewal Incentives
If you pay your membership on time then you can pick up an added bonus. These vary from time to time but can include some amazing deals on selected PADI Specialty programmes conducted throughout the year saving up to £110! That’s right, all the benefits of six months membership for £60 and we give you £110 straight back…
Reduced Kit Hire Rates
You get 50% off normal kit hire fees. Hire for the Thursday club dive will be £10 instead of £15 for full kit and free on a Sunday pool session. And for those of you who already own your gear we are including lightweight travel equipment and specialist equipment such as DPVs and rebreathers in the offer.
Free entry to our on site, heated dive pool during our club Sundays which run on the Sunday of every second and fourth full weekend of the month (2pm to 4.30pm). Don’t worry if you don’t have your own equipment, that’s free to club members too, saving you £15 every time you jump in. If you would like to introduce a friend to diving we also offer a free tasters session for club member family and friends (pre-booking is required).
Yeap, you read that right. We host a Club Aquasport barbecue at least once a month throughout the warmer months, usually on the fourth Sunday to coincide with the club pool. These are at the centre starting at 3pm. This is free for all of our club members and you can even bring family and friends along with you (please do let us know in advance if you are bringing a guest or two).
Free air Fills
Limited to two fills per visit unless otherwise arranged, but otherwise an unlimited number of fills throughout the year.
Free Diving Workshops
We will offer all club members free training workshops during our Sunday pool sessions and Thursday evening club dives. Digital Media, rescue skills, diving first aid and cold water diving are just a few of the workshops on offer throughout the year.
UK Diving Trips
We arrange at least 6 UK coastal trips a year plus holidays, dry dives, other weird stuff and inland site visits during the winter months. Both scheduled and non scheduled trips diving can be arranged. As a club member you get first dibs on all trips, events and holidays.
We will arrange a minimum of, but not limited to, at least two scheduled club events a year held at Aquasport International featuring talks by equipment manufacturers, celebrity divers and other relevant topics including ‘try it’ evenings.

Membership may also be granted to non affiliated divers, regardless of qualification, who have shown willingness to become involved with the the centre and the club.
Membership is not open to divers who are actively involved or affiliated with other dive clubs, schools or shops. Such divers however will not be barred from diving events arranged by Aquasport International as set out in the guidelines of the individual events.
Cost of Membership and Methods of Payment
The cost of membership is £120 per year. You can pay half yearly or annually by cash or card at the shop. Monthly subscriptions are in full and there is no concession for ‘missed months’. If you drop out from the club for 12 months or more membership is renewed as a new member. Otherwise payment is in full of back fees.
The regular Thursday club skive dives are running in full swing at Dosthill for both club members and non members. £6 gets you in, £5 with tank and weights and £20 (£10 for club members) for a full set of kit. Dosthill now opens earlier in the afternoon (call them for exact opening times) but we still aim to be there for 6.30pm. Then it’s off to the pub for apres dive!
PLEASE CALL THE CENTRE IN ADVANCE AND LET US KNOW YOU’RE COMING FOR EQUIPMENT AND WE’LL HAVE IT READY FOR YOU WHEN YOU ARRIVE.
We also offer Diving Workshops on both the Sunday pool sessions and on the Thursday and Friday club dives. These will be free to any member of our club and will consist of sessions aimed at improving your general diving skills, from tweaking your buoyancy to deploying an SMB or practicing free ascents and descents. The level of skills practiced will vary with each divers qualification. Open Water Divers will benefit form the basic skills, whereas Rescue Divers can practice lifts and searches.
