Dive! Tutukaka

Address:
Marina Rd, Tutukaka, New Zealand, 0173 - View the map

Dive! Tutukaka is New Zealand's premier full-service dive charter operator, servicing the Poor Knights Islands; "the best sub-tropical diving in the world". An icon on Northland's horizon and 23km off the northeast coast of New Zealand, the Poor Knights Islands are washed by a warm current that sweeps down from the Coral Sea. Water temperatures are warmer, visibility is clearer, and the complex underwater landscape results in a unique environment. Subtropical and temperate marine life co-exists with extraordinary diversity, beauty and density. Jacques Cousteau rated the islands in the top 10 dive sites ever, and he knew what he was talking about.

Over 125 species of fish, soft corals, encrusting sponges, vibrant anemones and ecklonia kelp forests; hundreds of mating sting rays, gorgonian fans, sandy bottoms and wall drop-offs - a day spent at the Poor Knights is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Our friendly team will tailor the day to suit you; you won't be out of your depth, and neither will you be frustrated. With purpose-built dive boats that take you to a site that matches your ability, we help you enjoy your dives. With a dramatic landscape, passionate people and the stories that entwine the two, Dive! Tutukaka delivers a total experience.

The only dedicated dive shop in Tutukaka supplying air-fills, equipment and retail sales, full equipment hire, professional crews, 364-day-a-year operations and PADI training for all levels; a Qualmark-endorsed National Geographic Dive Centre, and winner of multiple national and international awards.
