About BSAC

Run by divers for divers since 1953, the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC) is the largest dive club in the world.  BSAC provides diving, training and support through a network of more than 1100 clubs worldwide and has a global reputation for both safety and excellence.  BSAC membership is renewable annually and includes Third Party Liability Insurance and a subscription to SCUBA magazine.

Branch 2455

Branch 2455 of the British Sub-Aqua Club was founded in 2008 by a group of BSAC members who live in New Zealand but who wish to dive 'the BSAC way'.  The purpose of our club is to provide safe, regular, discounted diving and internationally recognised, quality training in a fun, friendly and supportive environment.
