What we're about

Club Overview

The Scubadillo Dive Club, affectionately known as the 'Dillos, has been goin' down since 1984. One of the oldest and the largest dive clubs in North Texas this is definitely the place to be. The club is involved in diving education, diving techniques and physiology, the marine environment and social events with other divers. We welcome all divers old, new and wannabes alike! Even if you're not sure whether diving is for you, come to a meeting and talk to some of our members.

The 'Dillos are a major force in the North Texas diving community. Working with dive shops, manufactures, distributors and our friends in other area dive clubs such as the Diving Rebels, Reef Riders, Texins, DUPES and FINZ, we strive to give all area divers a group not only to dive with but to dive with safely, learn and socialize. We want every diver to find a "home" and friends to dive with. The members of the 'Dillos comprise a wide and diverse range of individuals.

Our sole purpose is to provide a place for divers at any level to congregate, educate and socialize. Tech Divers can find others with mixed gas, decompression, extended range, deep and cave experience with certifications from TDI, ANDI and IANTD; even commercial diving experience.

If you want to dive and be around divers in North Texas.... you've found a home!
