General Information - 001. Safety in Diving


001. Safety in Diving



The motto of the Victorian Sub-Aqua Group (VSAG) is "Safety in Diving", so you can be assured that safe diving is our highest priority. We ensure that less experienced or newly certificated divers are buddied with experienced members. The members of our club are amongst the most experienced scuba divers in Australia. We have a number of members with over 30 years scuba diving experience and some with more than 50 years experience.

We are always happy to dive with newer divers, or those who have not dived for a while. Experienced members also assess conditions at dive sites and are available to give advice and assistance. We believe that the confidence and accelerated skills that new divers acquire when diving with us are advantages that VSAG is able to offer.

Our safety record is excellent. Whilst dives are restricted to certified scuba divers, prospective members, including non-divers and their friends, are welcome to come along to any of our activities such as nights out, day trips and weekends away.

When doing boat dives in Melbourne, we mostly use members' private boats. These boats are typically skippered by very experienced boat drivers/divers. The boats have safety equipment that meets or exceeds the legal requirements, sometimes even for charter boats. The skippers know the best dive sites, including dozens not visited by charter operators. Since we use the same boats regularly, we are familiar with the diving procedure for each boat, giving added safety.

Please keep in mind that whilst diving with VSAG you will be required to follow the VSAG Safety Diving Guidelines.

When applying to join VSAG, you will be required to provide a current Diving Medical Certificate.
