The Chicago Scuba Meetup is one of the largest and most active dive club in the Midwest. We hope you will join us for a dive or two! Who are we, you might be asking?? Hard to sum up hundreds of people in a few words.
We are all kinds of people
We come from all walks of life, with about a 50-50 mix of boys and girls. Our youngest member was born in 1995 and our oldest diver lies about his age. Some of us are tall and others short, and none of us have the same fin size or shape.
We welcome all levels of divers
Some of us have only the first 4 OW certification dives, others have 1000+ dives. Although, on our Lake Michigan charters, the boats are usually filled with new divers and warm water divers jumping in the big freshwater pond for the first time.
We like all kinds of diving
Some of us prefer coral reefs (and some won't dive anywhere else!), while others prefer the wrecks in Lake Michigan. Then there are those crazy cave divers, and we can't forget the ice divers and then of course there are some Hogarthians amongst us (which has nothing to do with motorcycles or pork farms).
Membership --- want to be cool like us?
Anyone can join CSM and only requires one very important thing -- a love of diving. A love of the underwater world, and an interest in hanging out with some fun people who share that passion. Learn more how CSM operates and how an optional Sustaining Membership fee can benefit you (offset event fees) and CSM. Donate your $20 at any meeting or by clicking here.
