    Hello Fellow Members,

    At USA’s September Board of Director’s meeting, Julie Manhold was appointed to the Membership team, and looks forward to joining Stephanie for the remainder of this year.

    In spite of the pitfalls COVID-19 has brought with it, our Club has now resumed local and overseas diving, and continues to attract new members.  Warm ocean waters, along with excellent ocean conditions and the best dive buddies anywhere, members have kept our summer dives filled to capacity.

    The USA Dive Club would like to welcome new member Xzavion Binns and returning member Bernd Meier.

    Xzavion has multiple dive certifications.  As an underwater photographer, he enjoys macro as well as wide-angle photography.  His most memorable dive was with the hammerheads, and he dreams of diving with the manta rays at night.  Other interests include kayak fishing, running, cooking and meeting new friends.  

    Bernd is a long-time former member of the USA Dive Club, and has taken the plunge over 2,000 times.  Rarely without his camera, Bernd enjoys local diving, and as a world traveler and underwater photographer, he has been capturing beautiful undersea and land photos from all over the globe.  His most memorable dive was in Raja Ampat, and a trip to Misool might be in his future.

    We invite you to browse through USA's extensive photo gallery for a look at our local and overseas diving along with varied social activities.

    Please extend a warm USA welcome to our new members.

    Happy Bubbling,
    Membership Coordinators

    Summer diving is in full swing and the ocean temp. is 84 degrees. We have had groups in the double digits for our local dives and the hurricanes are staying away. It's been a good summer!

    We welcome our new member Susan Treusdell from Maryland. She plans on spending some time in South Florida in the very near future and we look forward to diving with her. For now we can say "hello" via Zoom.

    Welcome to our new member Fran Hare. She has done some dives with the club as a guest and has done many dives at Blue Heron Bridge. She lives in Boynton Beach and we look forward to more people meeting her at the next in-person general meeting.

    Please welcome our new members Gary Goff and George Cathcart. Gary lives in Hillsboro Mile and was referred by a friend. George lives in Port St. Lucie and was referred by Marie York. This is the prime season for local diving so we hope they will join us so we can meet them.

    Happy 4th of July to everyone.

    I'd like to introduce our newest member, Will Schrier. He hails from Pittsburgh, PA but will be spending an extended time in West Palm Beach and was looking for people to dive with. He happened upon our website and the rest is history. He is not wasting any time in getting involved with the Club and has already signed up for the next two local dives. I, and I'm sure all those signed up, are looking forward to meeting and diving with him. I can't wait to have in person meetings again and meet the members that signed up during the pandemic.

    Hello Fellow Members:

    Interest in the dive club continues Inquiries are coming in from those that are going to be in the area for extended periods of time or are moving down here. Please keep spreading the word locally as well. Very much looking forward to seeing more members on club dives when they start up again.

    Happy Bubbling,

    I would like to introduce our newest member, Peter Bolton. He is a bit new to diving with about 10 logged dives. He was on Zoom for one of the past General Meetings and we hope to meet him when we can start up in person meetings. We have started a new membership committee of Julie Manhold, Alan Fuerman, Clare Anthon, and myself to review membership applications for a more efficient review. This will eliminate the month long wait for applicants to hear back after a board meeting.

    New inquiries keep coming in. Our website is getting notices and hopefully the flyers in the dive shops too.

    Hello fellow divers. I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful weather we're having, albeit a bit chilly at times. I have been doing a little bit of local diving to support the charters but it is cool now, 72-74 degree water temperatures. It takes more than one layer of wetsuit this time of year. Visibility has been very good due to no rain and runoff. I see our flyers in Force-E Pompano and hope it generates interest for more members. I have had an inquiry or two during this non-gathering time.

    Happy Bubbling,

    Hello Dive Club Members and Visitors,

    You may ask how can we run a club during a pandemic.  It takes volunteers who work behind the scenes to arrange for speakers on Zoom, process new membership applications electronically as well as collect dues electronically.  Speaking of dues......your dues will NOT be due January 1 for 2021 under the current circumstances but we are accepting donations to keep our basic services in operation. Please use Zelle to send donations to Thank you.

    While the club will not have sponsored dives during this time,  members are going diving together on local dive boats and getting together in small groups outside for other activities.  Stay in touch and stay safe.  

    Eunice & Stephanie
