Get the most out of SCUBA!
We divers all agree that scuba diving is an amazing experience. I feel very lucky to be a part the adventure that takes me underwater with my camera sometimes. The meditative benefits of this sport are immeasurable; there's nothing like it.
Achieving your certification is just the first part of the scuba journey. Get the most out of your scuba diving experiences by joining Adventure Sports Newmarket Dive Club: THE TANK JOCKEYS.
5 Reasons why the Tank Jockeys are a SPECTACULAR & AWESOME CLUB!
Making friends. You will cultivate lasting friendships with a diverse group of interesting people that share your love of the water - beneath the waves. This is a very social sport, and we count on each other to learn from and share the joy of everything we get to see and do underwater! You cannot get out of this experience without making 100 new friends. You must come see for yourself! :)
Dive more often. You get a chance to hone your skills by diving frequently through spring and summer. ASN divers dive every Wednesday through the dive season (locations may vary, but it's after work for a lot of folks, so we can't wander too far). We do weekend excursions to Tobermory, Brockville, and other wreck dives - Ontario has lots to dive! We host Scuba kick-off day at the end of May with an eco-cleanup dive and BBQ, and end the season with a pumpkin carving (underwater) dive in late October. SUPER FUN! And...we have acquired a dive boat, divers! We are anxious to set out a schedule for this season, but first thing's first - she needs inspection, maintenance, and custom outfitting, and WE are busy getting all the training we need to operate safely...STAY TUNED! Winter trips include Blackbeards, Aquacat, Florida Keys, and we may be adding new exotic locales. Frequent diving will make you a more competent (and safe) diver!
Our dive club members get free air for one tank throughout the year, a visual tank inspection, and well, many other discounts and benefits (discounted boat charters soon to be added to that list)! Click to see list.
Meetings and story swapping. Anybody who has dived for any length of time has a story to tell (mine is the great Ramora attack of 2014, lol, oh, and the shark diving in the Bahamas....oh so many!), and we all learn from each other. Your fellow dive members all have opinions and advice that they can't wait to share with you; add your voice to the melee!
Spontaneous diving made easy. Last minute dive plans! Post your need for a buddy in the group, and there's a good chance someone will respond to your call-to-action (likely several someone's).
So make that leap and join the gang! Meetings are every second Tuesday evening of every month. Locations always posted on our calendar and facebook events. We can't wait to welcome you. I can't think of our diving experience being any other way. Divers are like family, and they seem to be such happy (narced?) people!
