DIVE CLUB MELBOURNE Deeper Than Diving- A Dive Club With A Difference

AOS Dive Club- Deeper than DivingA Dive club with a difference.  Join the extended AOS family today!

Having an active social club that was established in 2004, we are blessed to have so many amazing people that are part of our club and the extended AOS family.

Academy of Scuba Dive club

Our goal is to get  you out diving as much, and as easily as possible. With guided dives happening most weekends we cater to all levels of diving. If we don’t have anything organised, you can easily join some of our other divers out on their adventures.

Our hope is to introduce you to new divers and give you fantastic unique and unforgettable diving experiences- with so many club members we have divers in the water all the time. We organise special events like our annual Aqualympics and underwater Easter egg hunts- some great experiences and a whole bunch of fun. We will also take you places interstate and overseas that take your breath away.

Understanding that all divers started as an Open Water Diver, our club harnesses the thought that it sometimes takes a while for some divers to be comfortable in this wonderful sport.  As such we only foster and encourage an all inclusive, supportive and nurturing environment.  Our weekly bbq’s on a Thursday night are a great way to meet new buddies and get a feel for our club so come in and check us out.

Like us on Facebook to see whats happening in and out of the water with the AOS crew. Upon joining our club you will get access to our private Facebook Group so that you can find buddies and get out diving whenever you want.  Just remember to ask to join after joining our club.

Check out our Club Dive Page to book your spot onto our dives.

Join us for our monthly Dive Against Debirs underwater clean up dive! We have adopted Mordialloc and will be returning to the site every month to keep it trash free, and help spread the word about the damaging effects of marine debris. Last month, we helped haul up over 14kg of trash - what will we be doing this time?! These clean-up dives are a great way to give something back to the ocean we love diving in so much, and to also help maintain our favourite dive sites. So that we make sure to bring enough tools for the clean-up, if you would like to join, you will need to confirm with the shop by lunchtime, Tuesday, 28th November, at the latest! Joining the clean-up dive is free (not including any gear hire required), so grab your dive gear (don't forget your gloves and water bottle for sharps) and come down and help! We look forward to seeing you there to support this worthy endeavour! We'll be having a few drinks afterwards for whoever can hang around :D Much love The AOS Team
