Join our Club!
If you are interested in midweek and weekend dives, UK trips and exciting warm water holidays as well as social events for divers and non-diving partners, why not join the Club Andark! The club is independent from any agency (BSAC, PADI etc) and is run by Andark. We welcome any diver of any level and their families. To get the most out of the club, members are encouraged to get involved with the planning, organising and implementation of the dives and events which will teach you new skills and help enhance the fun of the diving experience. The full calendar is planned with the members, giving everyone a chance to discuss the options and put their own ideas and interests forward. The meetings are held on the third Friday of each month and start at Andark at 7pm if a dry session, or 7.30pm if a pool session (unless otherwise stated). Meetings are typically in the form of a presentation and/or pool session followed by a social in The Old Ship Inn across the road around 9pm. See meetings for further details. We have a RIB available for club use. This will be used for midweek and weekend dives and in the summer for weekend club trips. Boat fees will be kept to a minimum; these fees will depend on distance to the launching site, launching fees and distance to dive site (fuel, etc).
