If you like to have fun diving, you will fit into Divers Anonymous.
We hold monthly meetings at Mario's Restaurant, 710 Van Houten Avenue, Clifton, NJ on the last Monday of the month at 7:30PM.
We are very active diving most months of the year and we also have parties, trips, speakers, training, newsletters, workshops, movie nights, picnics and more!
Ocean Wreck Divers of New Jersey was originally organized as the New Jersey Wreck Divers in 1978 by a small group of divers who wanted to dive together. The group was brought together by Joan Follmer who was then teaching in the area.
The purpose of the club has expanded over the years to include more than just diving with experienced and safety conscious divers. We've taken up some very important causes along the way. We adopted a dune in Ortley Beach, for example, and we lend our voice to ecological issues concerning the Jersey Shore as well as national marine conservation and the building of local artificial reefs.
