sub aqua

hello, we are the essex blades sub aqua club

We are a SCUBA diving club based at the University of Essex, providing great opportunities for experienced and novices alike. If you've never dived before, why not come along to a Try Dive session to give SCUBA a go. Those who already hold a certification can fun dive with us or enrol on any courses to gain additional experience. We are PADI affiliated, but welcome any other certifications.
