The facilities at the club include the following:

  • A large clubhouse with bar and kitchen facilities
  • Clean ablutions
  • Dining area
  • function & venue hire facilities
  • Fully equipped dive locker with a 450lt/min air and nitrox compressor

  • A washing up area with rinse baths and showers for dive kit and boats
  • Safe parking with controlled access
  • Easy foot access to the beach from the sun tanning lawn area outside the clubhouse.

The beach in front of the clubhouse is protected from large waves and currents by the Vetch’s pier breakwater, at +/- 500m long submerged reef which, along with adjacent limestone reef, is home to hundreds of species of marine life and is a great snorkel and or shallow Scuba Dive (max 6m depth).

The calm waters and protection from the Bluff makes the DUC beach one of the safest and best for beachgoers with children.


With all the “funny” weather we have had lately, the club has been inundated with phone calls asking what the weather is like at DUC. Well now you can check the conditions on line in real time : [ Click Here ].

Now you can check the surf and see if the sun is shining from your cell phone or PC. This super club benefit has been made possible by dedicated club members, Terry Lewis and Colin Evans – so when you see them at the club buy them a beer! Especially those of you in the mist belt north of the Berea! Save this address to your favourites.

So, don’t drift with the rest, come and join the best at DUC.
