It is good idea to join any sports club who have sports you are interested in.

Have you checked the Water Sports section Things to do in Abu Dhabi menu here. There are 5 good diving companies listed are having good reviews.

for diving look up ocean dive centre, al mahara diving and emirates divers all of which are AD based with their own faiclities. I use Ocean the most as i get a discount and theyre a good setup but i would say AL Mahara are the best overall setup in AD.

sports wise take a look at Haddins facilities at Zayed SPorts City, they have a very active facebook page. ZSC is also the home of the HArlequins rugby team, the HAddins Expat Football League, Haddins Athletics, Boot Camps, Gyms etc

Are you on Facebook? If so look up the group Abu Dhabi Dudes. I bet the fellas will welcome you and give you a few ideas for things to get involved in! Also, check out Yas Beach as there are a lot of water sports type activities run from there http://www.yasbeach.ae as well as the Corniche, of course!
