    I've dove with a few people from there and they were nice people. There is one particular person there I don't like at all, but I won't mention his/her name as to not ruin your potential experience with that person.

    Check out www.AtlantisRangers.org. The club meets monthly in Greenbelt, MD and schedules dives regularly from June through September off the coasts of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

    other options

    AtlantisRangers is a good option for local diving in the ocean. For Carribean trips, you might also try some local dive shops for quarries or Delaware trips on Surface Interval (or book directly and hope for a decent buddy, as I do when I can't find a bud).

    For warm water dives, The Dive Shop in Fairfax has a rich schedule and Annapolis Scuba has some 'long weekend' trips to Mexico or Turks that I've found convenient.

    I just moved to St Mary County and I found a dive shop in Solomons Island in Calvert county. They have a dive club and currently I'm doing some research. http://www.seadiveandcycle.com/uww.htm BTW didn't you post before asking the same thing?

    I'm not big into the STRUCTURED dive clubs where you have to attend a certain number of meetings or go on a certain number of their dives to stay a member. I'm in Southern Maryland also and would like to see a gathering of divers that are just looking to get together and go places when exotic - affordable deals can be found. I wouldn't mind starting something like that, even if it was an internet based club.

    I'm heading to the Society Islands of French Polynesia this October for 10 days. The price is $999.00 including everything except the flight. It would have been nice to have some other divers that I know going along.

    I went down to Key Largo 2 weeks ago and the R/T non-stop airline tickets were only $138.00 and the diving on the Spiegal Grove, Bibb and the Duane were awesome and affordable.

    Anyway, those are just two extreme examples. Sure would be nice to have a group of local divers to share deals with when I find them and visa-versa.
