Discover Scuba Dive


If you have never dived before, this is the experience for you! Join our instructors on a day trip out into the Bay of Islands and discover diving.

This scuba diving trip is an all day trip. We depart Paihia at 8:30am and cruise through the beautiful bay of Islands. We then moor to the wreck for the certified divers to dive. While they are down we go through the DSD flip chart and brief you on the dive procedures.

Then it’s our turn! We move to a shallow reef site, gear up and enter the water. We do some basic skills to get you comfortable with breathing underwater, and then we descend to a maximum depth of 12 metres. Once you are comfortable we take you for a tour of the underwater marine life.

After the dive you have time for some lunch and then some snorkelling. If you loved the dive you also have the opportunity to go for another dive for a small fee.

We then return through the islands to Paihia. We normally return by 4:00pm
