Rec. Divers was formed in 1977 for the purpose of scuba diving and fellowship. The club has been involved in many exciting dive trips, fund raising activities, community outreach events, charity work, and dive safety events. But most of all, we’re about fun!
We’ve held scuba swap meets, corresponded with legislative leaders over important dive-related legal issues, attended the Department of Environmental Conservation sports-person days to help spread the word about diving, the regulations around dive flags, and dive safety. Through fund-raising and membership dues, our treasury has funded club trips to many places including the Christian Islands, Tobermory, Kingston, Brockville, 1000 Islands, Lake George, Lake Champlain, the Finger Lakes, Florida, the Caymans Islands, and Roatan. On extended trips (typically weekend or longer), the club frequently underwrites a portion of the trip. On shorter trips, we may choose to pay for air used on the dives.
We are an active club with over 20 dive-related functions each dive season. In the off-season, we normally offer talks on dive technologies, equipment, trends, and travel. Members often show their special finds from past and present.
The club also takes part in other activities that include a member’s non-diving friends and family. We take wine-tasting tours, picnics, campouts, and other trips.
