Club Dives

You must be a certified diver to participate in the club dives. If you need to get certified please visit one of the¬†local dive shops. Non-divers are always welcome to accompany you to the dive sites to relax, provide ‚Äúshore support‚ÄĚ and enjoy the outdoors. The only exception are boat dives where there is a restriction to the number of passengers allowed on the boat.

No dive buddy? No problem! We will facilitate pairing up new or single divers with good dive buddies within the group.

Non club members: We welcome you to come and join in our dives. We ask that you sign a liability waiver and bring your certification card.

Club Members:We now require a new dive waiver for every club dive. Download the waiver here.The club has an emergency oxygen kit and first aid supplies on site at the dives. Some of our dives include lunch provided by the club check the dive details for more information. Membership fees pay for these services.

You are always welcome to bring some snacks to share with the other divers.
