Northland’s extensive coastlines offer spectacular marine diversity, with popular dive trips ranging from exploring established wreck sites and scenic marine reserves through to stocking up on seafood with coastal hunting expeditions. Close enough for easy access, remote enough to avoid the crowds… Northland diving is truly spectacular!
New Zealand is renowned for outstanding SCUBA diving, and Northland boasts some of the very best marine diversity, underwater topography and unspoilt sites in the country. The Poor Knights Islands, which lie only 23 kilometres (14.3 miles) off our coast, were recognised by Jacques Cousteau as one of the top 10 dive sites in the world. These protected islands and the surrounding marine reserve sit within easy reach of Whangarei city, providing a year-round SCUBA attraction for both domestic and foreign visitors. Enjoying an average water temperature of 20 to 23°C (68 to 73°F) during the summer months, and dropping down to 13 to 16°C (55 to 61°F) in the cooler months, Northland’s waters are perfectly suited to year-round SCUBA diving – and best of all? No crowds. Welcome to Northland, the true SCUBA capital of NZ!
