The Scubadillo Dive Club is one of the largest and most active dive clubs in Texas. Dedicated to Ocean Conservation, and promoting safety and education in SCUBA diving, the Scubadillos donate thousands of dollars annually to charity groups such as The Dallas Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park, Save the Manatee Club, and The Coral Reef Alliance. Our mission is to provide a place for divers of all experience levels to congregate, network, and socialize. The Scubadillo Dive Club fosters a community of local divers intent on furthering the sport of scuba diving. Monthly meetings focus on diver education, dive destinations, techniques, and the marine environment. Monthly Meetings Monthly meeting are held the first Thursday of every month at the Romano’s Macaroni Grill located at 4535 Beltline Rd. in Addison. Meetings start at 7:30 p.m., but early birds can catch the social hour at 6:30. This is a great way to meet new dive buddies and share your latest adventure! Each month features interesting guest speakers on a variety of diving and conservation-related topics.
Diving Activities - The Scubadillos have regular dive trips to area lakes as well as an annual blue water journey to Cozumel. The summer lake dives are well planned, emphasize safety and education, and share a common thread of camaraderie. Each year we host theme dives, such as an underwater Easter Egg Hunt, a Hawaiian Luau, and a couple of River Clean-up adventures. To top off the year in October, we hold an underwater pumpkin-carving contest! These weekend dive trips provide the opportunity to get better acquainted with fellow Dillos, camp out at local parks, and win cool prizes.
Charitable Causes - The Scubadillo Dive Club is a non-profit organization, and supports the environment that affects the diving community. In addition to Earth Day activities and river and lake cleanups, each year the Scubadillos contribute to organizations such as The Dallas Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park, Coral Reef Alliance and Save the Manatee Foundation.
Education and Environmental Conservation - The Scubadillo Dive Club is dedicated to education and ocean conservation. We work with several local dive shops to provide opportunities for Dallas divers to continue their diving education. Our members also participate in river and lake cleanups around the state to help keep our waterways clean and protect the area wildlife.
Social Activities - And when we are not getting wet, the Dillos offer plenty of “land-based” activities for members to connect with one another.
