Murdoch University Divers Club (MUD) is a non-profit club catering to students, staff and associates of Murdoch University. The membership generally hovers about 100 people. MUD is actively involved in recreation, research projects, and environmentally friendly activities such as “Clean up Australia”. Past trips have been organised to Rowley Shoals, Ningaloo Reef, Abrolhos Islands, Dunsborough and Albany. Local trips include diving Perth’s coastal and offshore reefs and Islands, especially Rottnest. Night dives are conducted in the Swan River where it is common to get a catch of large king prawns.
The club has been in existence since 1979, and in 2002 became affiliated with The Underwater Explorers Club of Western Australia (UEC). The UEC conducts boat dives most weekends, giving MUD members the opportunity to join in individually or as a group. Either way, UEC will take care of you and make sure you enjoy your day out.
