We organise regular CRAB HUNTING NIGHT DIVE competitions. We normally meet at the dive shop at 6:00pm to discuss the ‘undisclosed’ location of the dive and outline the rules and prizes involved, for example: Prizes will be awarded to the diver who catches the biggest crab, the largest amount, most colourful, best dressed diver etc, etc.

crabIf the idea of catching angry crabs doesnt appeal to you, dont worry, join us for a dive either way.
Should be a fun dive with BBQ and beers afterwards. FREE for NARC members, non-club members are more than welcome to come along, however it will be a $10 charge.
If you need hire gear or are after more information, ring the guys at the dive shop for details or register your interest for the next one.

3.Swan River Night Dive

prawnWhy: Night diving for crabs and prawns in the river is a very popular activity with many of Perth’s divers.
Once you’ve brought home a bag of fresh King Prawns or a bucket of delicious Blue Manna Crabs you’ll begin to understand why.

Also appealing is having the opportunity to go diving with some friends mid week, no matter what the weather.

As you can imagine night diving has it’s own set of problems. To do this activity safely and prepare you for the experience we recommend training and supervision by an instructor.

Most diver’s find night diving very enjoyable as you can see many strange and interesting creatures that are only about at night.

Another wonderful experience found at night is being able to approach and even ” TOUCH ” many fish while they are in a state of sleep, provided of course, you know what your touching.

Time: 6.00pm weeknights usually Thursday.

Where: Meet at the Shop at around 6.00 pm see map below – we have several sites to go to so check with the Shop on Which Location: Bicton, Jerrat Street Wrecks (Bicton), The Coombe Reserve (Mosman Park) or Black Wall Reach (Bicton).

When: Approximately every fortnight – call the shop for confirmation of dates

Event: We go in search of King Prawns and Crabs (nets and gloves available) as well as several wrecks.

Following the dive we will take light refreshments at the local Tavern for those interested.

Cost: Free for Club Members. (excludes gear however we have special discounted Night Dive gear hire prices )
Note: Divers will required to be either Advanced Diver or have completed the Advanced Training as shown above 2.

4. Boat Night Dives

Why: Night diving is a fantastic experience. Many creatures that are not visible during the day come out of their hiding places and can be seen at night underwater. For example, basket stars are feathery creatures that are only found at night. Lobsters also, come out of their holes at night to explore the reef. The colors of the reef are much more intense under your flashlight.
Another wonderful experience found at night is being able to approach and even ” TOUCH ” many fish while they are in a state of sleep, provided of course, you know what your touching.

Time: 6.30pm – Dives are totally dependant on weather conditions – therefore done on short notice. If you wish to be involved please register your interest at the shop so we can make contact at short notice when they are arranged.

Where: Meet at the Jetty at Mindarie Marina

When: When conditions are right usually December – May

Event: We go in search interesting creatures only found at night.

Following the dive we will take light refreshments at the local Tavern for those interested.
