The Clayton Diving Club Inc. was formed in 1967 and incorporated in 1968. It went on to buy land, had several dive boats and for over 30 years operated as an active Dive Club. In the late 1990's its numbers decreased and eventfully it divested itself of its assets and functionally stopped operating.

In 2010 a new Clayton Diving Club formed to carry on the rich tradition of scuba diving in Clayton, NY.
