History of the Club
The Caloosa Dive Club was started in 1970 by a small group of locals that enjoyed diving and spearfishing. At that time, many members owned their own boats and would meet on weekends and raft their boats together and go diving. In those days, the club was small and meetings were held in smaller venues.
Join us for an exciting presentation from multiple-award-winning author and lecturer Robert N. Macomber for a riveting look at the history-making May 1943 battle between a marauding Nazi U-boat and the very brave crew of a Cuban Navy 83-ft ex-USCG wooden patrol boat. Also, Mr. Macomber's 17th, newest and final book, FULL NAVAL HONORS, will be available for purchase and signing.
I finally have the 2022 Photo Contest photos posted to a web album. You can take a look here:
Longtime friend of the club Award winning author Robert N. Macomber is releasing a new book in April 2023. You can read the details in his Winter Newsletter.

Dive trips are scheduled throughout the year, within the glorious warm waters of Florida and surrounding areas. We stay busy with organized trips to aquariums, canoe trips, dinners and guest speakers. Members have offered dive trips to exotic locales such as the Cayman Islands, Mexico, and Bonaire.
We have our Annual Awards Banquet in October each year, where members are honored for their underwater photography as well as spearfishing talents.
