About the Club 

Due to the recommendations of our health officials in the state of Florida the Caloosa Dive Club has suspended all meeting through the remainder of May. Further notifications will be sent as the situation develops or changes.

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 meeting were held in larger venues.

Today, we have evolved into a club of nearly 100 members. We are proud to boast that our members range in age from 8 to 80. Our non-diving members enjoy the friendships that have been forged through the club. We have new divers and those holding advanced certifications with over 1,000+ logged dives.

Dive trips are scheduled throughout the year, within the glorious warm waters of Florida and surrounding areas We stay busy with organized trips to aquarium, 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.

The Caloosa Dive Club celebrated its 50th year anniversary on February 22nd at Scotty's Bierwerks in Cape Coral. The event was a chance for past and present members to gather and commemorate 50 years of diving and friendship. Over 120 people attended the festivities, food and drink. Check out some of the pictures here.
