Dive Club

Any Water Dive Center is also partnered with Monterey Bay’s largest active dive club - Underwater Voyagers. What started as a group of friends meeting after work a few nights a week back in 2016, has turned into a vibrant dive club comprised of over 400 members! In many ways, it is still the same group of friends who started this in 2016, there are just so many more friends to dive with now.

Underwater Voyagers runs weekly night dives, and weekend day dives. The weekly night dives alternate between Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. The weekend dives alternate between Saturday and Sunday. You can see our published dive schedule below. Please note that all dives are subject to conditions - and therefore might be canceled or re-scheduled accordingly. Underwater Voyagers is open to all divers of all abilities and experience. From fresh out of open water, to instructors with years of experience, everyone is welcome!

Our Speciality of the Month will be Equipment Specialist on Tuesday October 5th from 4pm-9pm at Aquarius Dive Shop. The Equipment Specialist course teaches you about:

We will also be hosting an Underwater Pumpkin Carving dive during our scheduled club dive on October 31st. For more information and rules please see below. 

All divers are required to bring their own pumpkin and carving materials (limit one pumpkin per diver). All divers must dive with a buddy during the competition at all times. At the point of descent, all divers will have 30 minutes to complete their carving. At the end of the dive, all dive computers must read 30 minutes or less OR must dive within the countdown clock.

At the end of the dive, all participants will exit the water with their equipment and pumpkins for judgement. All divers participating will assign 0-10 points to pumpkins based on the following categories. Divers cannot vote on their own pumpkins.

  • Creativity
  • Uniqueness
  • Full use of pumpkin

Pumpkins are not to be painted or decorated. All pumpkins must be able to stand out of water without support. All pumpkins must be real; no fabricated, machined or crafted pumpkins will be accepted.

As a general safety reminder, neither the Underwater Voyagers Dive Club nor Aquarius Dive Shop or Any Water Sports are responsible for injuries incurred during this event. Please do not attempt to carve another diver’s pumpkin or brandish cutting tools or equipment during the competition. Poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated and will result in disqualification. Tools and equipment left in the water will not be tolerated and will result in disqualification.

Please RSVP for this club dive by 5pm on October 27th. If you have any questions, please give us a call.
