Diving

The diving sites are spectacular.

Northland Dive takes trips to locations within the Bay of Islands such as Hole in the Rock, Danger Rock, Canterbury Wreck and occasionally, the Poor Knights Islands. In addition, we dive a number of lesser-known but equally stunning sites discovered and yet-to-be discovered.

The types of dive terrain you will encounter are: swim-throughs, caves, canyons, walls, boulders, off-shore pinnacles and New Zealand's newest wreck dive.

Because of Northland Dive's proximity to 2 coastlines, it is very rare that a dive trip is cancelled due to weather. North-East to South-East winds create perfect diving conditions for the Bay of Islands. Eastern side of Cape Brett favours North-West to Southerly winds. Visibility range varies in Jan-August from 15m to 30m+. Visibility can be reduced by algae blooms during Spring. Contact Shane for an accurate report.

Northland Dive operates all year round. Holiday periods and weekends are busiest, so book well in advance.

Bringing your own Gear?

It’s always reassuring diving with equipment that you own & trust.  And the joys of owning your own equipment is ensuring it has been serviced to Manufactures specifications and in good working order.  If you or Northland Dive feels any of your equipment is faulty or not fit for the conditions we have plenty of gear for hire.
