The Tasmanian University Dive Club (TUDC) is currently the largest and most active dive club operating in Tasmania. With more than 100 members and growing every year, the TUDC promotes safe and affordable diving catering to all levels of experience. Membership is not only for students; Alumni and non-students are welcome to join, and currently make up around half of our member base. Night diving, weekend club trips, research and conservation programs, cheap gear hire and access to the club’s 15 foot aluminium tristar dive boat are just a few of the benefits you score as a TUDC member.
The club is based in Hobart and primarily dives in the southeast of Tasmania, home to some of the world’s best temperate water diving. Day and weekend trips are regularly made up to Bicheno on the East Coast and down to the Tasman and Forestier Peninsulas. We also dive around Bruny Island, Betsey Island (including the wreck graveyard), Maria Island, Wedge Island and plenty more great spots. A few of our favourite dives include Waterfall Bay, Isle de Phoque, Nine Pin Point, Tinderbox marine reserve and Fortescue Bay kelp forest. But don’t let that stop you from hitting us up on the contact page and telling us where you want us to dive!
If you haven’t joined up to the club yet check out our membership page.
The TUDC is now participating in a range of marine conservation activities both above and below the water, as well as increasing our recreational diving to some of our state's most stunning coastal sites. And with a little fishing thrown in for good measure, there should always be a dive that floats your boat! Whether you’re interested in hunting crayfish, taking photographs, diving beneath the Hobart docks in the dead of night, high-octane drift diving or just taking in some of the magnificent scenery Tasmanian diving has to offer, the TUDC does it all.
Regular social meetings are back up and running - check out the dive calendar for more information. While you are online signing up for dives, check out our dive gallery, news section and conservation initiatives. We are continually growing these areas and looking for individuals to contribute. If you think you can provide exciting dive site reviews or gallery images then send us your details from our contact page and get involved.
Throw on your wettie, hit the big blue, and get wet!
