An adrenaline-fuelled diving club aimed at people of all levels is looking for brand new members.

The Lowestoft Sub Aqua Club is located in Waterlane Leisure Center in Lowestoft, where training dives for new and experienced members take place.

Founded in 1977, the club also has a site in Sea Palling, Norfolk, where the team can dive and explore the many wrecks along the coast.

Jack Grint, a boat officer for the club, said the sport is varied for people who want to try something new.

“Scuba diving offers a little bit of everything for people who want to try the sport,” Grint said.

“One minute it’s relaxing, swimming through the ocean and the next there’s a real adrenaline rush.

“The amazing thing is that the ocean is one of the most alien and unexplored aspects of our planet.

“It’s also a great escape for people in these stressful and weird times.

“Our club is also really inclusive, young and old participate and enjoy the sport.”

Mr Grint said: “The sport is very safe for new members to try.

“We dive all year round and between April and October this happens most weekends.

“We are a really active club, diving inland sites in the winter and removing the wrecks off the Norfolk and Suffolk coast in the summer.

“We have also planned a trip to Skomer in Wales in June.”

He said: “Our beginners can learn safely with a fully qualified supervisor at the pool.

“This costs £15 and includes an hour of practical training covering all the basics.

“There are then training courses for members who want to grow.

“Come try it out and join us.”
