Overview

Adelaide University Scuba Diving Club is one of the largest SCUBA diving clubs in South Australia and we accept membership from both university students and the general public alike. The club has over 100 members of varying experience, ranging from those that have just completing their Open Water Course 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.

Local dives are organised most weekends, and mid-week night 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) and 25 new Faber 12L tanks that were recently added to our hire fleet. We also have BCD’s, Scuba Pro regulators, and wetsuits for rental. All our hire gear is done on weekly hire rates from Thursday to the following Thursday and payments are made online via Adelaide University Sports.

The club can assist new members in obtaining divers certification with external training agencies but does not directly offer Open Water dive training.  AUSC is a strong advocate of advanced dive training and will support divers in obtaining rescue diver certifications through club grants. Throughout the year, the club also encourages 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

AUSC has strong links with the University of Adelaide through Adelaide University Sport. We are committed to providing opportunities for students to access safe, inclusive, and economical diving activities. We have a community dive culture that allows members to gain skills both in diving and in community club leadership.  You will never have a shortage of dive buddies when you are a club member at AUSC!
