The Long Island Groupers, Dive Club, invites you to be part of something special. We have a wonderful group of people that make up our club and we're always looking for other special people to help make our club even better. If you love diving and want to dive with people who feel the same way...If you like the idea of going on club trips and having a fun time...Then you are at the right place.
As a member, you'll receive 20% off on rental equipment at Tiedemann's Diving Center and receive a discount on air fills.
We have beach dives and wreck dives throughout the Spring, Summer, and Fall. We have special weekend trips to places like the 1,000 Islands, Maine and Rhode Island just to name a few. We have group trips to great places like Bonaire, Cozumel, Grand Cayman planned in the Spring and Fall. As you can see we have a lot to offer but most of all, as a member you get to go on club dives. All our dives are run by certified Instructors or Divemasters who know how to run a fun and safe dive. The club runs beach dives (free to members), quarry dives (you just pay the entrance fee) and wreck dives (we all chip in to pay for the dive boat. These are organized dives at which the group leader will give you a thorough briefing, help set up dive teams, keep careful control of the dive area during your dive. He or she cannot dive with you but you could make arrangements for one of the club instructors to dive with you if you prefer.
One of our annual events that everyone loves is our Annual Picnic. Every year for the last 30 years or so the Tiedemann’s diving family has gotten together to celebrate what we all love - Diving. Over the years, the way things were done has changed but the theme of “going diving with friends” - old and new - remains.
Our club is an active one. We have club activities year round and we do a variety of dives so that there is always something challenging and interesting. During the winter months we run trips to Florida and the Caribbean. Having fun is what diving is all about. Our club has fun.
