The club runs regular trips to the South Coast year-round (even in winter!), and occasional other events. Once each year (usually July or September), we also run a trip to Lady Musgrave Island, in the Great Barrier Reef, for a fortnight of tropical diving while Canberra shivers.
What's a club dive like, you ask? We have a description which may help you know what to expect. You could also try Bill's blurry view or Kristina's practical view.
If you're coordinating a trip, there's a guide which might be useful.
Any member is welcome on any trip. If you've never been on a club trip before (and even if you have!), there's a good description of how club trips work online.

The published diving calendar reperesents only the minimum of diving that you can do. Members are encouraged to use Club gear at reduced rates to organise their own dives when the Club isn't planning something. Better still, after having dived with the Club and demonstrated your commitment and ability, Club members can make use of the Club boats. One of the ways members can do so is to organise a Club dive at short notice. If someone does this it is advertised here and by email. So, get involved and go diving!
If you want to organise a dive on short notice, get in touch with one of the committee members.
