All aboard the tropical fall escape of Acey Deucey Club’s tiki bar submarine, the Acey-Deucey
For just $20, you can be part of the Acey-Deucey Club’s ongoing underwater exploration of Hawaii’s South Sea.
Since its first dive in 2008, the dive club has been to more than a dozen different sites, including ones in a variety of reef types ranging from kelp forest to sandy shelf. The club has grown, expanding from about 70 members in its first year to almost 400 members now.
The club’s most notable dives so far have been to the Nihoa Reef, Niihonu Reefs and Faisalik Atoll.
The club is currently conducting its third dive of 2017, and the first of 2018.
It’s the second annual dive this month, featuring a seven-hundred-foot dive off the north shore of Hilo.
For an extra $20 of your time and about 15 minutes, you can become a member of the club online as part of the Acey-Deucey Club, and be part of the expedition as we explore the Nihoa Reef, Niihonu Reefs and Faisalik Atoll.
It’s a great deal.
I’m the one on the boat. I’ll go first and get my gear. The first time we go the boat is on standby. The members will come on board. The boat is in a state of emergency. It’s very limited. There’s only so much room. It’s crowded and stuff, but I don’t mind at this point. I get to go first and stuff.
I’m an amateur diver in Hawaii. My goal is to do something, anything, that’s different from what I’ve done before.
Why did you decide to join Acey-Deucey Club?
I was first introduced to the club by my brother’s girlfriend, who was a member. The Acey-Deucey Club isn’t something you really see
