What kind of club is South Florida Divers? We are a
dive and social club. We have diving and social events
nearly every week. More diving occurs in the warmer months,
but we have local dives every month of the year.
Catching lobsters is a popular past time with many of the members.
What about social events? We enjoy getting
together for beach picnics, dinner on the town, bike rides, holiday boat cruises,
or just comparing dive stories and photos. Three of our most popular
events are our pig roast in the spring, a seafood fest
in September and a holiday party in early December. Typically 80-100 people
choose not to miss these fun events.
Where do you dive? Most of our diving is in the Miami,
Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach area, where we do boat and shore diving. We get down to the Keys several times each
year and we schedule three or more trips out of country
See our newsletter for scheduled trips.
What about club meetings? We have a monthly meeting,
the first Wednesday of the month, at the Lauderdale Isles Yacht Club, 2637 Whale Harbor Lane, Ft. Lauderdale.
The meeting starts with a 30 minute social from 7:00-7:30 then the business section from 7:30-8:00, a short break, then the program or speaker. We
have some very interesting speakers, covering topics such as wrecks,
dive equipment, updates on important ocean or fresh water environment
issues or archeological studies involving diving.
How does the club organize all these events?
Divers is a volunteer organization, so club members schedule each event. Each event, social or diving, has a
trip leader and a sign-up sheet. We go over the calendar at each club meeting,
it too is included in the newsletters on this website. We have a table set up with the sign-up sheets and a table for the
treasurer if funds are required. The sign-up sheet has the details about the trip, location, time, cost
(if any), and the trip
leader. Don't miss the photos from previous events, they too are on
display and within this web site.
What about membership? Membership dues cover each calendar
year and are $70 for individual and $100 for family. There is a one time set-up fee of $5. We ask that you be
a member before participating in club events [other than the club meetings].
