All members of the Seahorse Dive Club have a safe and secure medium to communicate between themselves for topical discussion, buddy requests and trip organisation. This simple subscription mailing list is created to be a central point of discussion to include all club members and be inclusive to those who opt out of social media.

How It Works?

Once you are a member of the club, your email address will be added to the ‘Buddies’ mailing list. Your email address will be able to post emails to and receive emails from the list. Any other emails will be bounced. When you are added, you will receive a welcome email. Should you leave the club or your membership does lapse, then your email address will be simply removed.

Google Groups

From October 2021, the mailing list migrated from a self hosted list to Google Groups which gives a number of administrator management and user benefits.

Those with a Google account will have additional functionality. They will be able to choose between receipt of individual emails, abridged or digest subscriptions. Further, those with a Google Group account will be able to see a history of all past conversations in a threaded archive via the group’s https://groups.google.com/g/seahorse-buddies web address.


You will need to ensure that email client is configured correctly. By example, if the list has your.name@googlemail.com as the list entry and your email client software is configured using your.name@gmail.com, then you will receive messages, but will not be able to post. You will need to contact the list owner to with your preferred email address.

The list is configured that when someone replies to your email, their response will come to you. This is so we can limit the amount of noise on the list. However, there is an ambiguity in the configuration that if you “reply all”, then the original sender and the list will receive a copy of your reply. Please do not “reply all”.
