The BUBBLEDIVERS vzw was born in 2011.
In 2015 the General Assembly appointed me as chairman.
I consider the democratization of the club as one of my most important achievements.
At the beginning of 2022 I decided to step aside and leave room for new blood.
ON REGULAR BASIS
During the school year, training sessions take place in the swimming pool 'Strop' Ghent.
Every two weeks, and even more frequently in the high season, you can participate in an outdoor dive.
We offer a variety of dive sites. Something for everyone.
From beginners to highly advanced levels; in summer but also in winter time; at home and abroad.
The family oriented club counts ~ 60 members, of which around 40% are women and 10% are children.
We also involve non-divers from the family through various activities.
Social cohesion is high on the agenda.
Twice a year the BUBBLEDIVERS go on weekends.
During Ascension weekend 2019 we visited Portland UK.
Portland offers some of the best diving in England with a wide range of options.
We focused on wreck diving.
For this we chartered the SKIN DEEPER, an 11m catamaran, specifically built for divers and equipped with a diving lift, fully licensed and insured to carry 12 passengers and 2 crew members.
The children and teens have just passed the exams and the school report period.
After a year of working hard, the adults are usually ready for some rest.
Traditionally, the BUBBLEDIVERS go to Zeeland NL in the first weekend of July.
