Deep Specialty

Want to take your diving to the next level? You can with us! Our Deep specialty extends your range of diving down to 40m. This is a great course for those looking to reach some deeper dive sites or explore deeper parts of our wreck the HMNZS Canterbury. Over 4 dives we gradually increase your depth to the limit of recreational diving 40m. During the course we explore the use of hang tanks and pony bottles and have a good look at some deeper dive sites.

Wreck Specialty

We have two of the best wrecks in the world on our doorstep which makes us a great place to earn your wreck specialty! This course can be done over 2-3 days and takes you through exploring, mapping and penetrating shipwrecks as well as buoyancy control and techniques to avoid disturbing silt or the wrecks inhabitants.We dive the HMNZS Canterbury and the Rainbow Warrior* so you get to see two very different wrecks with very different histories.

*The Rainbow Warrior is dependant on weather
