The MMUC does not train divers. If you want diver training we suggest you contact some of the organisations that advertise on this web page or in our magazine.

What the MMUC does do is provide trips ($70 for members) specifically designed for newly qualified divers, qualified divers returning to diving or qualified divers wanting shallow and sheltered dive sites with other divers of similar experience and mind set.

We can buddy you up with more experienced divers or you can dive with your own buddy in more settled conditions than other trips may provide.

These trips enable you to practice the skills that were gained in training and let you build your experience and confidence levels so that you can participate safely in more advanced dive sites if you wish.

Alternatively these trips provide enough variation, interest and camaraderie in themselves to keep you an active diver. See the calendar for Shallow and Sheltered trips and contact Glen Grant (Shallow/Sheltered Diver Enquiry on our Contact page) to book a spot.

The Mount Maunganui Underwater Club has a number of experienced dive instructors available for all levels of divers.

For divers wanting to have an instructor sign off a dive please talk the Club Captain or a committee member before booking your dive charter with the club to be sure we have an available instructor on board.

Not everyone wants to be a scuba diver – we can arrange practical support and encouragement for those wanting to learn free-diving and snorkeling at a beginner or intermediate level too. Just ask if you’d like some help or advice!
