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.
