Pub Nights and Lake BBQ’s

“Beer ‘n’ Bubbles” Pub Nights

We have regular pub nights in Central London, Brighton and BBQ’s at our exclusive lake at Mercers Country Park where you can meet our instructors and staff and make some life-long friends and like-minded divers. You can also ask questions about our trips in the UK and overseas and also ask other customers about courses they have taken that you might be interested in. Make life-long friends and a plan to go diving!

Pub nights in London take place from 7pm at the Tattershall Castle, a ship on the Thames that has been converted to a floating bar and restaurant.

Barbie by the Lake

The BBQ’s at the lake take place on a Saturday afternoon giving you time for a dive in the morning. We provide sausages and/or burgers FOC to divers and club members and you are welcome to bring your own food. For non-members and non-divers we ask for a £10 donation to our preferred charity the Shark Trust which you can pay on the day. For more information and to book your fun dive just click here.

Unlike other clubs we are not ‘dive nerds’, we prefer to have a bit a good chat and a bit of a laugh rather than talk about the size of our O-rings!



We meet at the Tattershall Castle Ship on the Thames close to Embankment Station and Waterloo. They offer a fine selection of beers, wine, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks. They even have a fish ‘n’ chip shop on board!

We like to know roughly how many people we are coming in case we need to reserve a larger area. Please head to our Facebook Page if you are coming and you can find the pub nights under “events” and just add that you are “going”.

We hope that you are able to make it down and look forward to seeing you for a drink.
