Camping all weekend. BBQ/Potluck on Saturday. Plan on food, fun and diving! AND...if you have a surf rod and want to fish for Surf Perch on Sunday then bring it along!
This years annual President's BBQ/Potluck is being held at Whalen Island on Saturday July 13th. The diving there is open to all levels, it is a good place to practice skills and train in low viz. The real fun is sitting around telling SCUBA lies anyway right??? ūüėČ Anyway, this BBQ is always a blast, we have tons of fun and good food. So come on down and join us!

August8/1/2019Please come out and join us as we listen to Grace Peverly and her adventures in diving Palau and Chuuk with her husband Matthew.

My name is Grace Peverly. I have only been a diver for a little over 4 years. My husband and I learned to dive as a 20th wedding anniversary to each other. We try to dive 1 or 2 weekends a month. But now whenever we go more than 2 weekends without being in the water, it almost hurts. Diving has truly become our shared addiction. As in any other addiction, it is not a good idea to live with an enabler. Our bank account has quite dwindled as our memories overflow. But, what a wonderful thing in which to invest! Our home overflows with neoprene and hoses. Our garage houses tanks and drying suits and BCs. We have gotten the packing down to a science. The road to Puget Sound is becoming our second home. I love diving!
September9/5/2019Faith Ortins formerly the VP of DUI will be coming out to tell us about her newly formed travel company. If you have never had an opportunity to talk with Faith you should come to the meeting. Faith is a hoot..ūü§£. Please come out and join us for a fun evening listening to Faith and then playing the Wheel of Scuba for a chance to win a cool prize. See ya' there!!!
