The Leven SCUBA Club (LSC) is the oldest and at the present time, only SCUBA dive club operating on Tasmania's North West Coast. Formed in 1978 it's still active and has a small but enthusiastic membership committed to promoting safe, affordable recreational SCUBA diving.
We are also actively involved in environmental and community activities which directly or otherwise affect the sport of SCUBA diving and the marine environment. As well as diving for fun, LSC members help in harbour cleanups, survey work and many other underwater activities of a non-commercial nature. We are committed to the conservation of shipwrecks and other vulnerable dive sites.
The LSC has an ongoing project involving the construction and maintenance of artificial reefs to promote the growth and retention of sea life on the North West coast of Tasmania.
Club members often travel to other dive locations around the state, usually on the east coast for charters or shore dives. We also try to support other Tasmanian dive clubs and operators whenever possible and participate in SCUBA dive community events.
The clubs' name is derived from the Leven river of Ulverstone, where the LSC was originally formed. Over the years however the membership has been predominately based in Devonport and this is where the club is now situated.
Meetings are held at 7:30 PM on the 1st Thursday of each month (excluding public holidays) at The Mersey Yacht Club - Anchor Dr - East Devonport
