On top of being one of NZ’s most beautiful underwater landscapes Paihia is home to two historically rich shipwreck sites and breathtaking reefs.
The HMNZS Canterbury F421 now rests in Deep Water Cove near Cape Brett. Upright and in tact, she makes for an impressive sight in a great dive location!
The Rainbow Warrior was famous in the 1980’s for being sunk by the French government to stop Green peace protesting the Nuclear detonations at Muroroa Atoll. Resunk in 1987 it is now an artificial reef covered in life and dived by hundreds of diver every year.
If you have questions or if you would like to speak with one of the dive team please feel free to contact us.
