The Explorers Dive Club is a nonprofit group promoting dive community, sharing knowledge and experience. We are a group of central NJ recreational divers representing all ages, certifications, diving interests and levels of experience. We organize shore dives, boat dives, picnics, dive vacations and other social events. Our monthly meetings feature prominent speakers in sport diving and we publish a monthly newsletter. Need a dive buddy? Join the club! Thank you for visiting and come back often to see what's new.

Club meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm at the Spain Inn in Piscataway from April through October. Join us for dinner before the meeting. There are no meetings November through March, but we hold a December holiday party, a Sunday brunch in October, an annual summer picnic and a Delaware River rafting trip in August.

September 2019 Club Meeting

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday September 10th 2019, at 7:30 pm at the Spain Inn Restaurant in Piscataway. Our guest speaker will be Phil Abbott who will give a presentation on diving in south Florida. In January 2019, Phil and his dive buddies Al Simone and John Yavorsky made a series of 5 dives so that Phil could obtain his AOW rating. The famous Blue Heron Bridge site in Palm Beach was a great navigation dive, starting with a manatee siting. The dive boat “Sea Experience” in Ft. Lauderdale provided a wreck dive at “Hog Heaven” and “boat dive” on a shallow drift. The dive boat “Narcosis” in Palm Beach gave us a Deep (drift dive), where a turtle was spotted. Second dive was another Drift dive. Phil filmed all these dives with an iPhone in a Kraken case with great results.
