The Penguins will joining the Sydney Orcas in fishing the Alliman Shield against the current four established Sydney clubs in 2020.

 

The Port Hacking Penguins are the first spearfishing club in NSW, established in 1946. We are the Premier Club in the Shire and we have won many titles over the years, including the Alliman Shield.

Our club cater to all levels of spearfishing from your beginner, to the experience and junior through to the Master diver. We all love the ocean and the diversity it offers. We have a great and experienced member base and we are keen to share our knowledge with our new members.

By becoming a member of the Penguins you will also be a member of the USFA (Underwater Skindiving and Fisherman Association) who is the state body that looks after our insurance and works tirelessly to maintain our fishing areas open. The Port Hacking Penguins are involved spearfishing competitions and social events through out the year.
