We are the oldest dive club in Melbourne formed in 1953 and we welcome new members. Whether you are an experienced diver or have been recently bitten by the underwater bug, you will find BRUDG a friendly bunch that will allow you to engage in frequent, varied and inexpensive diving to many remote and local dive spots.
Most diving is done out of members private boats. The boats are mostly fast deep Vee fibreglass hull types in excess of 5 metres long. All are fitted with 2 way radios, depth sounders and GPS navigation aids. We generally go out for the entire day taking 2 tanks and lunch with us. Diving is unhurried and we usually manage to find a quiet sunny spot to have lunch. There is often a debriefing at the end of the day at a local hotel. Participants are expected to contribute to the cost of the boats fuel bill. For single day diving boats are generally launched from San Remo (Philip Is), Flinders or Sorrento. This provides access to the best dive locations around Philip island, Westernport Bay, Mornington Peninsular (bayside and backbeach) and the West Coast from Point Lonsdale to Torquay. Whenever conditions permit we would travel to Apollo Bay or Port Campbell.
