Diving Certifications

Anyone with a recognised scuba diving certification is welcome to join VSAG. However, to get the best value from a VSAG membership and diving with VSAG you should hold an Advanced Open Water, or equivalent, certification. Many VSAG dives exceed the recommended 18 metre depth limit for Open Water divers.

Private boat owners are especially welcome.

If you're interested, please get in touch using the Contact Form.

It's easy, it's fun — come and dive with us

Have you just learnt to dive while away on a holiday and would love to know about diving in Victoria but don't know how to go about it? Do you want to dive with the friendliest dive club in Victoria?

Then the Victorian Sub-Aqua Group is the club for you.

VSAG is inviting all divers to come and give it a go the VSAG way. It doesn't matter where you trained or who you trained with. It doesn't matter if you haven't dived for a few seasons. We want to take you diving and show you a whole new world.

Please come along to a VSAG general meeting and make friends with the friendliest and most active independent dive club in Victoria.

New Diver Days

VSAG regularly conducts New Diver Days so that you can find out what it is like to go diving with VSAG. A New Diver Day typically involves a morning boat dive, followed by lunch out on the water, and then an afternoon boat dive. On a New Diver Day, you will be asked to contribute $20 towards the costs of the boat owner for the day. (VSAG can provide you with a second cylinder for the day.)

To participate in a New Diver Day, you will be required to complete a VSAG Request to Dive Form. Dives undertaken on New Diver Days are typically considered as your check/tryout dives if you subsequently apply for membership of VSAG within an appropriate time period.

Please keep in mind that whilst diving with VSAG you will be required to follow the VSAG Safety Diving Guidelines. So please come suitably equipped and prepared.

Do you need others to dive with?
Do you want to learn how to conduct boat dives safely?

  • Direct you to exciting new dive locations
  • Provide experience in diving new sites
  • Mateship

  • Trips away

Whether you haven't been taking your boat out due to lacking crew, or need experienced boat handlers to help, you get more out of your diving. VSAG CAN HELP!

Membership Form

You can download and complete a VSAG Membership Form and send it to a VSAG member you know, or a VSAG Committee member.

Along with a completed VSAG Membership Application form, you will need to provide a photocopy of your scuba diver certification card(s). You will also need to provide a photocopy of your current Diving Medical Certificate, said medical having been conducted according to AS4005.1 standards.

Check / Trial Dive
Before being accepted as a VSAG Member, you will be required to undertake at least one check/tryout dive to a maximum depth of no more than 18 metres with a member of the VSAG Committee or other appointed diver. If you can demonstrate a level of certification and/or experience that qualifies you to dive deeper than 18 metres, a committee member may approve a variation of the depth limit for your check/tryout dive.

On the day of your check/tryout dive you will be required to bring along a completed VSAG Request to Dive Form. Please keep in mind that whilst diving with VSAG you will be required to follow the VSAG Safety Diving Guidelines. So please come suitably equipped and prepared.
