Scuba Diving

The Durban Undersea Club is a dive a club for all!

Scuba Diving at the Durban Undersea Club (DUC) has a rich scuba diving heritage, with many of the clubs founders, and current members, contributing to undersea activities in South Africa in some way.

Whether you are interested in exploring new reefs or shipwrecks, technical scuba diving, fish identification, or just talking scuba diving with like-minded underwater enthusiasts, the Durban Undersea Club has a wealth of members that are experts in their respective field of diving.

DUC can schedule dives daily off Durban and Aliwal using the local boat operators.

DUC has the following facilities:

Dive Charters & Vouchers

If you are a DUC member you are entitled to a discount if you dive with an approved Dive Charter. This is given in the form of a DUC Dive voucher which you can only purchase from the club. You do need to come into the club to purchase the voucher.

What's the weather like?

As a diver it is important to study the weather patterns and from experience try and predict what the weather will do.
