About Dive Pacific

New Zealand’s only dedicated dive magazine, keeping our readers informed and entertained.

Established December 1989
Owned by the NZ Underwater Association
Committed to New Zealand diving community


Dive Pacific magazine was first published in December 1989; then known to our readers as Dive Log New Zealand.

In the late 90s we dropped the ‘Log’ and became Dive New Zealand and Dive Pacific – Dive Pacific being the international version, as well as the title for the online version.

The New Zealand Underwater Association is current owner of Dive Pacific, with Gilbert Peterson as publisher and editor.
