The Hillarys Yacht Club Dive Section is comprised of families and individuals who share a love for water based activities and the conservation of our marine environment. Dive excursions are mostly conducted on Saturdays with Sundays booked when the Club Boat Balaton Jack is available. Naturally, all dives are weather dependent, and all divers must hold a current dive certification for the level of dive being conducted.
Balaton Jack boasts enough deck space to accommodate comfortably up to 20 divers for either single or double tank dives. While the majority of our dives are carried out from Balaton Jack, sites further a field requires the use of private boats belonging to our members.
Our local dives incorporate sites ranging from the Gemini wreck just south of Lancelin in the north, to Garden Island in the south and of course, across to Rottnest Island. Annual country visits include trips to Mandurah, Dunsborough and Coral Bay. Our overseas holidays to Manado, The Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Bali, Borneo and more recently Sipidan have also proven greatly successful.Our bi-monthly calendar which includes both social and diving activities caters for all age groups and experience levels.
As part of our ongoing commitment to improve skills and awareness we offer members the chance to participate in certified courses through access to commercial Dive Instructors, Perth Diving Academy, who are proud sponsors of the HYC Dive Section.
Being a highly sociable group, we like to take advantage of our great Club facilities by meeting informally over a drink or two, on the first Thursday of each month at 7.30pm. So come along and try your skill at catching crayfish or perhaps photography is your passion. Whatever you do, you will enjoy your experience when you dive with the Hillarys Yacht Club team.
