The West Norfolk Sub Aqua Club was founded in the early 1970's and has over 35 members. It is run under B.S.A.C. rules by a committee.
Importantly the branch is run as a members club, where every member has the chance to join in and contribute to it's success.
There is a wide range of equipment available to members; this includes two RIB's (rigid inflatable boats), a compressor and diving equipment used for training purposes. The training takes the form of both formal lectures and practical in-water sessions.
The club hires Alive St James Pool, Kings Lynn exclusively for diver training every Tuesday evening between 7.30 and 9.30 o'clock, after which we adjourn to the nearby British legion club for the informal part of the evening.
If you join the West Norfolk Sub-Aqua Club, you can progress through the B.S.A.C. qualifications, whilst gaining experience on the regular open water dives organised by club members. In addition, the club arranges diving trips which typically include such venues as:- West coast Scotland, Farnes Islands (off the Nothumbrian coast), the south and west coast of England.

More recently some of our members were luckily enough to be visited by dolphins in Egypt, courtesy of Mike Johnson please click HERE.
In addition there are day and weekend trips to inland sites as well as to our own local North Norfolk coast; occasionally, more exotic locations are included, such as the Red Sea etc. FUN, FUN, FUN!!!
Training in a club situation gives you the opportunity to make new friends who share your interest in diving.
