While we are loving our club dives we still need to ensure we are following all the recommended guidelines including social gathering limits, social distancing and personal hygiene for each level.
All our equipment is maintained, cleaned and steriilised to current standards.
Equipment Hire: Come to collect gear from the truck when called forward
Setting Up: Check your equipment, do NOT breathe through your alternate air source
Briefing: Our staff will give the briefing & ask you to verbally agree with our club disclosure forms
Gearing Up: Use a seat or vehicle if required to safely don your equipment on your own
Buddy Checks: Perform your buddy checks at a safe distance
Entry/Exits: Keep your mask and regulator in place if requiring buddy assistance
Signing Out: Our staff will complete the dive profile form – please be ready with all information
Gearing Down: Please ensure all hire gear is returned to the truck when requested.
We want you to keep diving and keep those skills fresh. We aim to get out at least three times a week, for a total of 5 dives. No matter what your experience level is, there will always be a buddy for you!
Wellington has some of the most diverse diving in the country. We have wrecks, reefs, reserves, hunting grounds and no shortage of muck diving. We try to cater as best as we can for everyone's interest.
The majority of club dives are run from shore but we also try to get out on the boat as much as possible. But, as any Wellingtonian will know, the weather doesn't always play ball so boat trips are something to jump on as soon as they come up.
All you need to do to join us is fill out our Club Diver Form and subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of the home page. You can also check out what the Club is up to by following our facebook page.
We have a huge range of hire equipment. When you come out with us as part of the Dive Club, you will get our special club rates on any hired equipment. If you need to hire any equipment from us when joining a club dive, please give us at least 24 hours notice. We usually have courses running at the same time as the Dive Club so make sure you book your equipment in advance so you don't miss out.
Look at what the club got up to last year!
We get out for a single dive every Thursday afterwork. In the summer this is a great way to cool off and relax whereas in the Winter months it gives us the opportunity to get out and do some night diving. No matter how many times you have dived a site and no matter how well you think you know it, a night dive will always deliver something new and unexpected!
We meet at the chosen dive site at 5:45pm and are usually hitting the water at 6:30pm. Bookings are essential so please let us know within 24hrs of the dive that you would like to come along.
Every Saturday and Sunday we head out for two dives, weather permitting. One of our instructors or dive masters will take the club to the best site for the day and run two dives, but you don't need to stay for both if you don't want to.
With three different coast lines to choose from, there is more often than not a site with good conditions where we can get your fins wet.
We meet at the shop at 9:00am and head out to the best site of the day from there. The first dive is usually all wrapped up by 12:00pm and the second dive by 2:00pm.
Our instructors will give you a safety briefing and site description before you hit the water and will be there to help out with any issues or questions you have during the day.
Again, bookings are essential so please let us know if you plan to join us. Give us a call by Friday lunchtime so we can make sure we have a suitable buddy for you and can organise any equipment hire you may need.
