Dive Trips and Snorkeling Trips

Just over 2 hours drive south of Auckland lies some of New Zealand's finest scenery - both above and under the water. The islands, pinnacles and volcanic coastline of the Cathedral Cove and Hahei area offers divers, snorkelers and sightseers untouched and breathtaking scenery.

Dive Trips are running everyday, weather permitting, throughout summer as well as many days through the winter months. We have two purpose built dive and snorkel boats and have well trained in-water guides to show you about if you're new to NZ waters.

Trip times

9:00am, 12:30pm and 3:30pm - please make a booking via phone or use the booking page. Note: these times may change so bookings are essential

Guided Snorkel Trips: regular guided snorkel boat trips everyday this summer, weather permitting. Price $95 covers the boat trip out and around the islands off Hahei beach and Cathedral Cove full wetsuits (long arm/long leg), top quality snorkeling gear and an in-water instructor/guide. Also lifejackets and other floating devices free of charge if needed. Allow 1 1/2 hours and you'll get 1 hour in the water with a guide!


NZ is blessed with some amazing & unique underwater subtropical scenery – on a global scale we may look small, but we feel that what we offer here is a totally unique experience

The water temperatures are climbing and the pelagic fish are moving in shallow for the summer, it's a great time to be in the water and beat the rush. Check those dates on your dive cylinders and get them into Josh. We're seeing some lovely big crayfish settling into the Reserve with great snapper numbers in and outside the reserve
