We at partnering with Southern Tas Divers to organise a “try dive” day for  anyone interested in trying diving and underwater competitions for certified divers.

All participates will need to pay for their own pool entry (approx. $6).

Try Dive:

If you are interested or know someone that is please contact us! You don’t even need to have snorkeled before! All skills required will be taught on the day (It is preferable to have some basic confidence in the water though! We’ll go over the equipment you’ll use, learn to breathe underwater, have a bit of fun swimming around and information on ‘where to next’ if you’d like to get certified. Due to the time of the year we will be holding this experience in the Clarence Pool which is heated to 28 degrees however you can still cool down quickly.

Equipment supplied – tanks, Regs, BCDS, Fins, masks, snorkels and instructors will be provided.

You will need to bring along something to swim in (suggestion board shorts and a rashy/tee shirt or a 3mm wetsuit). Please bring along a sense of adventure!

Underwater Competitions:

Are you keen to practice and improve your recreational scuba diving practice technique? Come along for some fun competing to test your buoyancy by swimming through a long tunnel made of hoops suspended in mid-water, removal of scuba gear, breathing from alternate air source while swimming, switching mask, and surface swim (with weight). These are put together for a competition to see who is the TUDC best diver!


We’ll probably head to the pub afterwards for more bubbles.
