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.

Divers Encounter a Whale Shark

October Club Meeting

Our next meeting will be held Tuesday October 10th, 2017. The presentation will be a video of the club's trip to Galapagos in July 2006. This trip was one of the best ones we've been on. Besides the magnificent land excursions to see tortoises, sea lions, marine iguanas, blue-footed boobies, frigates and penguins, as divers we explored an entire other dimension underwater. There was a great variety of sharks: white-tip reef sharks, galapagos sharks, silky sharks, schools of hammerheads and the bggest fish in the world, the whale shark swimming past the dropoff on Darwin Island. We also saw sea lion ballets, eels, turtles and a variety of rays, up to large Mantas. The meeting is at 7:30 at the Spain Inn at 1707 W 7th St, Piscataway Township, NJ 08854. Come early at 6:30 and join us for dinner.
