Aquatic Obsessions hosts several dive clubs for divers of all interest levels and ages.
The AO Dive Club is open to everyone, free of charge. We meet the 1st or 2nd Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm (depending on the Tampa Bay Rays game schedule, contact the shop for each month) at Ferg’s Sports Bar downtown on Central Ave and 13th St., across from the St. Pete Police Station. We have our own private club room upstairs! It’s a great time, including guest speakers, door prizes, and continuing diver education. These meetings are one of the best places to learn about new equipment, new diving safety, and a place to meet dive buddies. This is a great chance to keep abreast of what’s going on in your local diving community. All divers and diver wannabees are welcome, come to Ferg’s and be part of the fun!
The Tampa Bay Spearfishing Club was founded by owner Bill Hardman. This is an invitation only spearfishermen’s club, with meetings twice a month. This club hosts the Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge every spring, one of the largest spearing competitions in the USA.
The Salty Sea Wenches are the sister club to the TBSC. This women diver’s club supports a variety of interests including spearfishing, photography, and community involvement. The Wenches actively volunteer at local diving events and help to support local charities.
