Hi Divers

We are all busy gearing up for a big summer. Stocking the shop, planning courses, boat charters and trips away.

We have northerly winds for this weekend, so the South Coast should be good for a dive.

Daylight savings starts next weekend so keep an eye out for more after work dives.

We have 2 spots available on our Truk Lagoon trip, check out the details below on the trip of a lifetime. We also have 2 spots available on our Northland trip next month.


Come participate in the 7th annual South Coast clean up. We have chosen to support The Friends of Taputeranga Marine Reserve and help clean up the snorkel trail area meeting there at 10.30am.

The clean-up is focused on clearing rubbish from the shore line, so everyone is welcome to participate. Postponement date will be 18th of September.

For more information and to check other locations check out the Facebook page - Wellington South Coast Clean-up.

All this for just $845 (excluding flights) with a $200 deposit securing your spot. 2 spaces available.
