Sport England Grant
Hellfins are pleased to announce that we’ve been awarded a £10,000 grant from Sport England towards the purchase of a new Rib. This is part of a wider project to help university club divers to keep diving once they’ve left their uni branch and have moved to London. If you’re a uni-diver who has moved to London get in touch as membership is just £10 for your first year.
We are a central London scuba diving club (based right next to Victoria station) but that doesn’t stop us getting out for a dive. We’re a friendly and active club who place the emphasis on safety and fun.
We’re a BSAC club and very proud of it! But we also welcome divers from other agencies. In fact, lots of Hellfins first trained with other agencies.
We do a wide range of diving, mainly in the UK, but we also try and go abroad a few times a year. Given our location, a typical trip tends to be hardboat diving on the South Coast. You’ll often find us in Brighton or Portland for example. However we also run long weekend trips to places such as Plymouth, and week long trips to far flung destinations such as the Scillies or Scapa.
We also have two ribs. Martha is a 5.5m Osprey who is kept in London during the winter months and Eastbourne in the summer. Molly is our brand new 6.3m Humber rib and is be kept in Portland all year round.
As well as the diving, We are very sociable club. We don’t just run diving trips, but also a wide range of social events that include cheeky curries and an annual ski trip.
We have a pool session every Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm in the Queen Mother’s Sports Centre near Victoria station. Then it’s time for a cheeky pint in the Constitution pub in Pimlico where they kindly reserve us our own private room.
Do take a look around our site. If we look like the kind of people you want to dive with and you’d like to find out more, then get in contact or come down one Wednesday to see if we’re the right club for you.
