NSW DIVE TRIPS

We arrange weekend dive trips about once a month. Members benefit from any dive discounts offered by shops and this reduces the cost to members. We always throw on free a Saturday night barbecue on these trips. As we have been running dive trips for a long time to every location in New South Wales, we know the best operators to use and the best value places to stay. This ensures members get the best dive experiences at the best price.
In most years we have trips to Jervis Bay, South West Rocks, North Solitary Islands and Nelson Bay. We also have trips now and then to places like Eden, Port Macquarie, Byron Bay and Ulladulla. As well, the girls have an annual trip to Nelson Bay as do the boys.
In 2022 we ran a trip to Lord Howe Island, we had 12 attend for 8 days. A great success.
Our dive calendar is set annually in around November for the next year. This calendar is created with input from all interested members. Anyone can suggest a dive or weekend. See the Calendar Page for more details of the current year's diving.
Most years we organise overseas or interstate dive trips. Recent trips have been:
On these trips we have had up to 24 members travelling. Some of these trips are run in conjunction with other dive clubs, including the Ryde Underwater Club and DOUTS. All of them have been outstanding successes.

These trips are tailored to our needs, you get to do what you want to do at the right price. We do not load up the trip with extra $ to cover the dive organiser's costs and we pass on any discounts we receive. This normally equates to a discount of at least 15% less than the cost if you organised it yourself and in some cases more than 25% less than an identical shop organised trip.
Finally, you get to travel with friends, with people who you already have dived with and know.
