Founded in 1952, The Florida Skin Divers Association (FSDA) is the oldest and largest independent
organization of divers in the state of Florida. The FSDA is a volunteer, non-profit coalition of Dive Clubs
and individuals bound together by our common interest in sport, skin and SCUBA diving.
The member clubs of the Florida Skin Divers Association take great pride in announcing the 2015 USA National Spearfishing Championships at historic Tarpon Springs, FL on August 3-7, 2015. Tarpon Springs is known worldwide for its rich diving heritage, since the first Greek immigrants began collecting sponges underwater in 1887 to its thriving sponge industry and dive tourism business today. The rich Gulf of Mexico waters off Tarpon Springs were the site of previous USOA National Spearfishing championships in 2001 and 1974. For out of town competitors, our friends at the Tarpon Springs Chamber of Commerce are ready to help you with event lodging, restaurants and accommodations.
