Description of the weekend

  This is SUCI’s largest Diver Training weekend. During this weekend  current club members get together to assist our new students with their certification dives and to do a few pleasure dives themselves.  The Marmora Dive site is filled with artifacts, some placed conspicuously for our viewing pleasure and other that are natural features.  In 2023 a  few SUCI members uncovered several Potholes in the River, right where we do our dives.  It is well worth the short trip to Marmora to have a look at these archeological marvels.  This weekend is for everyone, whether you are getting certified, helping with the certification process or just there to do a few pleasure dives and hang out with other club members. 

Directions from TPASC to Marmora Scuba Site
