Welcome to the Sunstar Sub Aqua web site. We are a friendly BSAC Scuba diving club based in Ipswich, Suffolk (UK).

We now meet every Thursday (apart from bank holidays) at 7.30pm in Fore Street Swimming Pool in Ipswich which we share with the ISAC club, for diver training, social swimming, snorkelling and occasionally a lively game of Octopush. Afterwards (between 9.00-10.00pm we head off to the Lord Nelson for a chat and a drink.

We dive locally off the Suffolk and Norfolk coast, which provide plenty of interesting wrecks to explore in reasonably challenging conditions using our two well equipped boats.

For more exotic diving we arrange or have supported club holidays all over the UK and abroad. Popular destinations have included the Hebrides, Scapa Flow, the Farne Islands (Northumberland), Thailand, Falmouth, Pembroke, Ireland, Sardinia, New Zealand, Gozo, Australia, Bonaire, the Shetland Islands, Croatia as well as our perennial trip to the Red Sea.

Our training covers all BSAC levels from entry level Ocean diver up to Advanced Diver. A BSAC diving qualification is internationally recognised allowing to dive anywhere in the world. We can also run the majority of the BSAC Skill Development Courses in house. These are special interest courses, designed to ensure you get the very best out of your diving.

Use the menu on the left to have a wander round our site. As well as the diary the news page and photos pages will give you some idea of what we get up to.

New members are always welcome and the club is open to everybody - both new divers and those already qualified. We often arrange Try Dive sessions in the pool for those new to he sport so come along and see if it is for you. If you are interested in joining then see how to join.

Sunstar is a not-for-profit club which has The British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) as its parent body. We are also affiliated to Adastral Park Leisure and Sports (ATLAS) and are a partnership organisation with Ipswich Borough Council (IBC) through our use of the Fore Street Pool.

The club has benefitted through grant aid from both Ipswich Borough Council and ATLAS.
