Aqua Tutus Diving Club was founded in 1955 and became a non-profit organization in 1958. Our goal is to educate the general public about the sport of Skin and SCUBA diving through quality instruction.
We hold a General Meeting at 7:30 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month, at the Ricky's Sports Theatre and Grill located at 15028 Hesperian Blvd in San Leandro, CA. The meeting is held in the large banquet room alongside the parking lot and is open to the public. If you're interested in scuba diving or want to learn about the marine environment, please join us.
Aqua Tutus Diving Club's membership is made up of a diverse group of individuals with common interests in sport diving, skin diving, diving instruction, underwater photography and abalone diving. Two of our members are PADI-certified dive instructors who offer subsidized training to Aqua Tutus members. Membership costs $40 a year and there is a discount for members living in the same household and for students. Club membership subsidizes diver training and guest speakers who come to our meetings to talk about marine ecology and dive sites around the world.
Our members have a wide range of diving ability from not-yet-certified to thousands of dives. They hail from all over the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as our extended family in Washington, Nevada, Hawaii and the Monterey Bay area. We dive primarily in the Monterey Bay area each month and organize a couple California North Coast dives each year. Some members plan trips to warm water destinations, such as Mexico and countries in the South Pacific, and make those trips available to other club members.
