Membership costs:

Membership is $90.00 per FINANCIAL year.

Discount available in the month of July. Both new and renewing members receive a discount of $20 if the fee is paid between the 1st of July and on or before the 31st of July so it costs only $70. We encourage payment in July because the AGM is held then and to achieve a Quorum we require paid up members in attendance.

Junior members: $45.00 per FINANCIAL year. Junior members need to be under 16yrs and have at least a Junior Open Water Dive Certificate. Please note that on dive trips, minors always have to be accompanied by a [diving] parent or guardian.

We don’t offer pro-rata discounts for part-year membership but members who have joined on or after the 1st of January enjoy an additional $20 discount when they renew in the following financial year.
