Durban Undersea Club, “DUC”, as it’s familiarly known, is a family orientated, social activities club for people that have an interest in the ocean and its beaches.
DUC has evolved from being primarily a diving club to a multi water sport club with a number of disciplines such as :
- SCUBA Diving
- Spear Fishing
- Underwater Photography and Video
- Underwater Hockey
- Surf Ski
- Paddle (fishing) ski
- Ski boating and Jet ski fishing
- Water polo
- Stand Up Paddling (SUP)
The Clubhouse currently serves as a “home” to these sports, where water sport participants can meet and arrange sporting activities as well socialize and entertain guests.
Although providing sporting related facilities and accommodating water sport members is the main priority of the club, the club has a large social and family membership that use the clubhouse mainly for its easy access to one of Durban’s finest beaches as well as it’s safe environment, clean facilities and affordable food and beverage offerings.
The beach in front of the new 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 beach-goers with children.
