The North Queensland Underwater Explorers Club (NQUEC) is a SCUBA diving club based out of Townsville, in Queensland Australia. The Dive Club has some fantastic dives sites right on our doorstep – the world class SS Yongala dive and the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef.
We regularly organise day trips and weekends away to these locations, beautiful Islands in the region like Magnetic and Pelorus Islands, and other sites along the north Queensland coast. But it’s not all about diving, either! We’re friendly and welcoming, with a social events calendar that includes BBQs and get togethers. We also look after the marine environment by taking part in Clean Up Australia day.

Membership entitles you to:
  • Access to all club dive trips.
  • Access to all club social events.
  • Access to stand-by rates and locals discounts with dive operators (where prior arrangements have been negotiated between the operator and the club)
  • Access to subsidies from our insurance provider to undertake dive safety training courses, (such as first aid, emergency oxygen provision, marine radio).
  • Access to equipment, programs, and training secured through Government grants.
  • Access to club tanks.
  • Use of the club’s compressor on dive trips.
  • Regular email and webpage updates.
  • Mentoring by experienced divers for novice divers (if required).
  • And most importantly, being part of a group means we can put you in touch with like-minded folks within the North QLD dive community!
Interested? Divers, snorkelers, and social members are welcome. We meet on the first Tuesday of the month at the Townsville Yacht Club on 1 Plume St at 7:30pm. Feel free to turn up or you can get in touch with us via our contacts page for more information.
