As South Australia’s most prestigious dive club the ‘Glenelg Scuba Diving Club’ has been actively supporting and involving the diving community since 1983.
Since their beginning the ‘Glenelg Scuba Diving Club’ has made home the beautiful beachside suburb of Glenelg, South Australia and operates from the state of the art diving facility, Adelaide Scuba.
The ‘Glenelg Scuba Diving Club’ promotes the FUN of scuba diving and we are here to ensure that everyone gets the most out of the sport we all so much enjoy. Our club is continuously growing and with a strong friendly atmosphere this club is a must for everyone, divers and non-divers alike.
‘Glenelg Scuba Diving Club’ regularly organises diving and non diving activities. These include shore dives exploring a number of Adelaide’s premier dive sites, treasure hunts, pleasure cruises and weekends away visiting different regions of South Australia.
In addition to the local dive travel we are also extremely passionate about interstate and international dive travel visiting many overseas destinations such as Vanuatu, Bali, Guam, Papua New Guinea, Borneo, Truk Lagoon, Florida and Egypt.
We organise and participate in many environmental activities including clean up days in association with Project Aware, Reef Watch and Kesab. With our strong alliance with the City of Holdfast Bay, Adelaide Scuba and the ‘Glenelg Scuba Diving Club’ have unlimited access to the Glenelg foreshore where we regularly assist with environmental landcare and ocean conservation projects and clean ups.
The ‘Glenelg Scuba Diving Club’ is not just for divers. The dive club also invites non divers to participate in non diving related activities including monthly club meetings, snorkeling safaris, beach clean up days, BBQs, and importantly our famous social parties held at Adelaide Scuba HQ at Glenelg.
Adelaide Scuba and the ‘Glenelg Scuba Diving Club’ host regular club meetings on the first Monday of every month, these evenings are held in the upstairs clubrooms of our world class facility in Glenelg North, otherwise known as Adelaide Scuba HQ.
The evenings are often packed with SCUBA news, updates and appearances from a number of guest speakers presenting on a diverse range of topics. Some of our recent guests have been Mike Ball from Mike Ball Dive Expeditions, Rodney Fox from Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions, Bob Ramsey from Hyperbaric Health and our own, John Bent presenting on some of his remarkable and fascinating experiences diving for sunken treasure lost from Spanish Galleons, these are just to name a few.
