Bay of Islands

The Bay of Islands is New Zealand's sub-tropical diving dream, with everything from beautiful reefs to awesome wrecks, caves and caverns and not to forget the abundant fish life and temperate waters makes the North a underwater playground for all levels and interests.

With sites like The famous Rainbow Warrier, the Greenpeace boat that was bombed by the French secret service in 1985, and ex HMSNZ Canterbury NZ's last steam powered frigate that was decommissioned in 2005 and then sank in 2007 to live on as an artificial reef. Both wrecks have now become stunning reefs with a rainbow of colour and diverse marine life both big and small.

With other sites like Number 22, this Dive site has it all and is a favorite with the team. With depths ranging from 5m-22m with large boulders and swim through’s, large gully's Then off to the west there is mermaids cave, a huge sea cavern running all the way through a small peninsular, it leads to a shallow lagoon at the back.

And Taheke Reef - a huge pinnacle rising from the depths up to 8m. This is an exhilarating dive. For advanced divers only as it drops off to 40m+ and often has current. If you a wanting to get a glimpse of something big then this is the dive for you, with massive schools of fish and vertical walls that look out into the great blue yonder it’s the spot to see marlin, sharks, some big King Fish and large sting rays gliding the walls.

The Bay of Islands also offers great spearfishing, a sport that is growing in popularity and who can blame it when you can explore the rich coast line and selectively catch a feed at the same time.

The Bay of Islands also has plenty to offer on land as well, with some of NZ's best beaches, stunning DOC walking tracks, a huge selection of cafes and lots of family fun actives there is something for everyone.
