The Long Island Divers Association (LIDA) is a not-for-profit regional organization dedicated to the promotion of local diving, the representation of divers interests throughout the diving and general community, and the protection of divers rights through outreach to our local and regional government officials. We are funded by member dues and donations and the proceeds from our annual Film Festival fundraiser. LIDA is staffed completely by volunteers.

LIDA Highlights & Events

  • Harbor School Dive at Ponquogue Bridge - Please join LIDA and the students from the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School on another SCUBA diving adventure at the Ponquogue Bridge at Long Island's Shinnecock Inlet. LIDA is proud to sponsor this Community Outreach by providing bus transportation for these great young divers as well as breakfast, lunch, and unbridled encouragement. Show your support by coming down to the Ponquogue Bridge for the dive. Even if you don't dive, come join us for breakfast and lunch, and help welcome these outstanding young people.

    It's great way to give back something and to encourage great young urban kids to continue a healthy, constructive, and lifelong activity. The dive will take place at high slack tide (12:48 PM) on Saturday, September 19, 2015. It's best to arrive 2-hours prior to slack tide. We invite you to join us! View details, directions and photos
