We want to be sure you have a great days diving!

You can be rest assured that we have worked hard to find many great dive sites that are accessible from Auckland, and will only recommend professional Charter Boat Operators. Check out details on the different operators we use at the end of the trip list.

Remember, you don't have to wait for your mates to be free, book onto any trip and you will be buddied up on the boat - no problems!

"97 Wairau Rd" - These trips meet here at the shop and you simply join one of our open water courses diving on the Leigh Coast/Goat Island Marine Reserve.

Poor Knights trips 
7 days per week in summer and every weekend in winter!

The trips leave from Tutukaka (said “two-two-car-car”) :-) which is 2 ½ hours’ drive north of Auckland. 

No-one can supply transport unfortunately, so you need to drive yourself up and back. 

You would need to be in Tutukaka by 8.15am. The trip costs $190 and a full set of hire gear is $100 if you want to use the boats gear (which is easier) or $75 if you want to use our gear and pick it up from us in Auckland the day before the trip, and return it us the day after.

The trips leave the wharf as soon as everyone is ready and you get back approximately 4:30pm. 

You do two dives on the trip, and you can be an open water diver for the dives here.

The boat crew and Divemasters can look after you and guide you in the water if you prefer. 

There are heaps of dive sites around NZ, but with limited time, the Poor Knights is the one to do. 

If you want to book these trips just book here http://www.divecentre.co.nz/shop/Dive-Trips and confirm the date you want to go in the notes section and we will come back to you ASAP with confirmation. This is NOT an automated process. Due to the requirements of booking you onto the boat manually we must be able to confirm your space on the boat before the booking is confirmed. Please book far enough in advance for us to check bookings during the day so we can confirm your booking.

If the trip is cancelled due to weather you will be refunded in full.
