// Action for CLUBS
Origins

In January 2010, a small group of divers with an avid passion for underwater photography began meeting regularly to share their images, in-camera and photo editing skills. 
Interest grew and Snappers’ Underwater Photography Inc was formed in March 2012. 

We continue to grow – mentoring, learning and sharing, while having fun. 
Who knows what each photographer can achieve with their acquired skills, and the group’s support.

COVID Advice for Divers

Thanks, Margo for the updated information – very valuable and helpful

“The Diver’s Alert Network (DAN) has issued updated advice relating to divers who have suffered from Covid-19 infections and are planning a return to scuba diving. Covid-19 has particular implications for the scuba diving community as the SARS-COV-2 virus which causes it targets the heart, lungs, circulatory and respiratory systems – those most affected by pressure when we dive.
