JOIN US


Our aim is to encourage safe, affordable and fun diving. Diving is more enjoyable and rewarding when you can share your experiences with others, including many experienced, skilled divers. Later, over a favourite beverage we “lime” in the shade of a coconut tree. 

Our members often group together to take diver training courses and can usually negotiate group prices. This increases your diving confidence, qualifications and knowledge at competitive rates. We benefit from reduced rates with the dive operators and get discounts off dive equipment from local suppliers.

Our social events include day cruises, visiting historic sites, special events and lots of parties!
