About our Club

What We Do

We Dive
The NEADC organizes shore and boat dives including wreck dives, fish survey dives, tropical fish collections, lobstering and photo dives throughout the Northeast. We have done Shark Cage Dives in Rhode Island, Seal Dives to the Isles of Shoals. Our members have lead dive trips everywhere from the Bahamas, to Acadia National Park in Maine, and treks to Les Escoumins, Quebec, Canada.

'New members' dives help new divers or divers new to the area. You can meet other divers and see new dive spots. To dive with us, you should hold a valid dive certification and be at least 18 years of age (or be accompanied by a diving guardian over 21 years of age).

NEAq Aerial View We Meet
At 6:30PM on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, we meet at the New England Aquarium, Central Wharf, Boston. Visitors are welcome. We have speakers on topics that interest the dive community. Members show underwater videos and slides, trade dive tips and hear the latest diving news. At each monthly meeting there's a unique raffle limited to NEADC members: a member will win a dive in the Giant Ocean Tank, the largest exhibit in the New England Aquarium. Afterward, we gather for dinner at a nearby restaurant.

We Exchange Information
Our bi-yearly newsletter features twelve pages of articles and tips on diving and safety, local and exotic dive site reviews, news, club information, environmental news and a calendar of upcoming dives and events. Our members have dived all around the world, and are a great source for information and networking.

We Make a Difference
The Club joins forces with other dive clubs to promote underwater education, and do cleanup dives.

The NEADC promotes a clean, safe, and accessible diving environment. Each year we organize a Great Annual Fish Count conduct underwater animal censuses throughout New England. The NEADC supports Sea Rovers and their annual internship program.

We Have Fun
Many activities besides diving offer members and guests opportunities to make friends and relax. We have special behind the scenes tours at New England Aquarium. We host an annual spring whale watch, each of our events is also a BBQ where divers from across New England gather. Whatever your interests, you'll find kindred spirits among us.
