What We Do

Our main aim is to get people out diving. We have trips planned every second weekend, weather permitting. Dive trips range from local sites, to weekends away elsewhere in NZ and overseas trips. Its all about getting out there and diving! We host a range of competitions, photography and spearfishing. If you are looking to get out diving come along and find out more. We have gear to hire, lots of trips planned and safe divers to buddy you up with.

About Us

Our Club was formed in 1952 at the request of the Nelson Police to assist in maritime rescues after a young child went missing in a local river. Since then our Club has developed into the largest independent diving club in New Zealand. As well as having a strong emphasis on scuba diving we also have a large spearfishing contingency. We are conservation minded, being involved in many beach clean ups, establishment of marine reserves and submissions on environmental issues. However we also enjoy bringing home a feed of fresh seafood.

Club Meetings

We meet at 7.30pm on the third Tuesday of each month at our upstairs club rooms in Hastings Street. See the Contact Us page for details.

Next Meeting: Tuesday 17th December at 7.30pm
