NASAC , the Nautical Archaeology Society’s Dive Club

run by NAS members for NAS members

About Us

The Nautical Archaeology Sub-Aqua Club (NASAC) is a NAS affiliated and volunteer run dive club which has been formed to provide additional practical archaeological and fun diving opportunities for NAS members. The club is affiliated to the Sub–Aqua Association (Branch 1127), and welcomes divers from all the training agencies. We do not teach diving, but we will aim to develop members’ skills through specific projects that will initially be based primarily along the south coast. Club diving will be under SAA guidelines and club members will be encouraged to join SAA in order to be covered by its comprehensive insurance scheme. Club members who are not SAA members will need to hold independent third party insurance (eg. through BSAC or DAN) and a current diving medical (or to self certify on every dive).

As a members’ club, we depend on our members helping out with club activities, for example by helping organise projects and diving opportunities, by helping maintain the Club‘s RIB Honor and, for members with suitable vehicles, sharing the task of towing Honor to dive sites (significant membership discounts are available in reward).

Club Meetings

The club meets socially on the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm.

Meetings are usually  held at Fort Cumberland (Fort Cumberland Road, Eastney, Portsmouth, PO4 9LD)
