Welcome to Underwater Research Group of NSW

Going strong since 1956

URG is a not-for-profit scuba diving club with a regular dive schedule (boat & shore diving) in Sydney and surrounds. Join our club to explore great local dive sites and if you like, get involved in research projects to help marine conservation. Most of the URG members are experienced scuba divers however, anyone with an Open Water Certification and access to scuba equipment is welcome to join.

We pride ourselves on a 100% safety record and ensure we mentor new divers. Our members are interested in a range of underwater activities, including marine biology, underwater photography/videography, conservation and citizen science. We also organise a few interstate and overseas dive trips a year.
