What we're about
Welcome to the Desert Dolphins SCUBA Diving Club's website based in Tucson, AZ. The Desert Dolphins SCUBA Diving Club, the oldest active dive club in the state of Arizona and probably one of the oldest in the USA, was founded in 1959. We celebrated our 57th anniversary with a dive weekend in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico, during October 2016. The 58th Anniversary dive weekend is scheduled for September 29th – Oct 1st, 2017.
Individuals interested in our organization are welcome to attend our Desert Dolphins Diving Club's monthly meetings on the third Wednesday of each month - 5:30pm at Pinnacle Peak in Trail Dust Town, 6541 E Tanque Verde Rd, Tucson, AZ 85715
