Come and try out scubadiving

Note! Due to popular demand we've organized an extra intro dive on the 8th of October! Click here to sign up


Are you enlisted as a RUG or Hanze student? Would you like to learn how to dive, or is it already your hobby? Or would you prefer to first try it out, before fully diving into it? At G.B.D. Calamari, you can do this entirely free of charge! Even if you already have a diving certificate it's still fun to take a plunge in the swimming pool!

The introdives are planned in advance of the start of the diving courses. Training for the 1*/Open Water certificate starts in October 2018. More information regarding the certificates, training and costs can be found on our website. 

Before the introduction dive there'll be a short instruction about the gear, things to pay attention to during your first dive and of course an impression of all the things you can see while diving in the Netherlands! If you're thinking, 'awesome!', after the introduction dive, you'll have no other choice than to become a member of our stu‡dent diving club! You'll be able to get your diving certificate, with which you can dive all over the world! We also offer the possibility to continue your diving training to higher levels.

Important! To be able to join an introduction dive, you'll have to be able to become an ACLO member! An ACLO membership is required to become a member of G.B.D. Calamari. If you're not sure if you can become a member of G.B.D. Calamari, contact the secretary.

For the introduction dive you'll only have to bring swimming supplies to the Willem Alexander Sportcentrum at the Zernike complex. We'll take care of the rest of your gear.

All intro dives will be held on a Monday (for dates see below) from 18.30 until 21.00. After the dive we will all enjoy a cold beer (or other non-alcoholic beverages) at our “Hok” or at our favorite pub depending on the weather.
