Since 1971

Who are the New York City Sea Gypsies?

Founded by local scuba divers and instructors in 1971, we are a not-for-profit club made up of individuals of diverse ages and from all walks of life with one thing in common: we all share a love of scuba diving.

The Sea Gypsies host monthly evening lectures and other social events, local boat, beach and lake diving, as well as dive trips out of the area.

Dive Schedule

The Sea Gypsies dive actively all year round.

Our diving schedule which contains both local boat diving charters, shore diving opportunities and dive trips can be found here. Members also have access to special club diving events.

Executive Committee

The club relies on the efforts of members who volunteer to be officers on the Executive Committee. All of these jobs are open to any active member in good standing.

Six of these positions are elected by the membership at the November meeting. These officers make up the
Board of Directors, who vote on various club matters as per the bylaws, and who appoint the additional non-elected members of the Executive Committee.
