The Monadnock Divers Club (MDC) is the only dive club located in the Monadnock Region. Founded in 1988, our membership consists of recreational divers, some with many years of experience, as well as many others who are newly certified.
The MDC is here to introduce newly certified divers to other divers and new dive sites. We are mostly sport divers, but we have many levels of diving expertise represented by our membership, including SCUBA instructors. What unites us is our love of the oceans, lakes and rivers, our concern for dive safety, and our desire to learn more and to share our diving knowledge with others.
Some of the activities we engage in as a club include:
- Freshwater & ocean tune-up dives
- Attend dive related seminars
- Boat charters (members get $25 off the cost of the charter!)
- Camping/diving weekends
- Project AWARE! lake cleanup dive
- Halloween party (including an underwater pumpkin carving contest)
- Christmas party (including an underwater tree trimming dive)
- New Years Day dive
- Photo contest
- Club organized dives (of course!)
From June to October we meet twice a month on the first and third Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm at The Pub Restaurant. During the winter we meet only on the first Tuesday of the month. Visitors are always welcome. Each meeting features club activities, news, and occasional speaker, dive films or slides and sharing of dive experiences.
Every Friday after a meeting there is a night dive. Between the months of May and October we plan ocean and boat dives. Many dives are easy, but we also offer some that are more advanced. Post your dive plan on the MDC Forum and see who shows up!
