Our membership is diverse: from cray hunters, spearo’s, snorkellers, casual divers, photographers and videographers through to technical divers. We also have a large number of purely social members who join to enjoy our wonderful club-rooms. All are welcome.
We offer regular day trips to our numerous off-shore islands, wrecks and reefs. These include Mayor Island, Motiti Island, their surrounding reefs, the SS Taupo, MV Taioma and the not so well kept secret, the Digger.
Our day trips are conducted from the MV Orca, a fast, comfortable 15 metre launch with plenty of room for fifteen divers. On our day trips, we offer two dives a day.
Members have also travelled together to exotic overseas destinations such as the Coral Sea, Solomon Islands, Komodo Islands, Papua New Guinea, Raja Ampat and the Philippines.
In 2000, we organised the sinking of the Tug ‘Taioma’. We have undertaken historic surveys of the SS Taupo, and organised beach clean ups in and around the Bay of Plenty. More recently, the club was involved in surveying the site of the MV Rena from a recreational perspective.
We have one of the best club-rooms in the country, offering magnificent views of Tauranga Harbour, Pilot Bay and Mt Maunganui / Mauao. Our licensed bar, and restaurant ‘Pier One’ are open daily and offer well-priced drinks and quality meals and snacks. Raffle nights and member-only jackpot draws are weekly draw cards.
The MMUC is a member of the New Zealand Underwater Association and supports its goals of promoting safe and enjoyable underwater activities in New Zealand.
Have we whetted your appetite?
