Adelaide University Scuba Diving Club is one of the largest SCUBA diving clubs in South Australia. The club has over 100 members of varying experience, ranging from beginners to instructors. We accept membership from both university students and the general public alike.

Local dives are organised most weekends, and mid-week night and dawn dives are also popular. The club has a well equipped dive boat, three compressors for air fills (one club room compressor and two portable compressors for away trips). We also have scuba equipment for rental on weekly hire rates from Thursday to the following Thursday. The club can assist new members in obtaining divers certification with external training agencies and is a strong advocate of advanced dive training.

Throughout the year, AUSC encourage interested members to undertake a number of allied training courses in boat handling and seamanship, coastal navigation and marine radio operation, as well as DAN oxygen and resuscitation, and senior first aid certifications. These courses can often be subsidised by applying for training grants.

Membership Diversity

Adelaide University Scuba Diving Club has a diverse membership with experience ranging from beginners in the process of completing their Open Water Courses through to divers with mixed gas, technical and cave qualifications that choose to log more than 150 dives each year with the club. There is a strong focus on making diving accessible to members of all levels of experience, with the vast majority of the club’s week to week activities suitable for the entire membership.

AUSC has strong links with the University of Adelaide through Adelaide University Sport, and is committed to providing students access to safe, economical diving activities. The club is very active with local dives heading out every weekend throughout the year, regular mid week night dives and trips away within South Australia.
