A day trip to the Poor Knights is a great way to spend a Sunday. We head out every second Sunday from Tutukaka for 2 dives, normally at 2 different sites unless the first site is worth a second visit. During the surface interval we may take a tour of the islands for those divers who haven't visited them before.
The trip is aimed at experienced divers as there is not a guide on board. But don't let worry if you haven't got a dive buddy, we will buddy you up with a suitable buddy.
We can run our various PADI dive courses on this trip.
Cost: $190 | Excludes gear
A minimum deposit of $100 is required to hold your space, with any remaining payment to be paid by the Saturday before the trip.
We meet at Tutukaka at 8am on the day of the trip, unless otherwise discussed.
if you haven't been in the water for over 12 months or haven't dived in cold water and used a 7mm suit, then book onto a refresher in our pool before the trip. This will ensure you are comfortable in the water before we go on the trip.
Bring along a copy of your dive certification
Please Note: Lunch is not included, so please be sure to bring along refreshments to keep yourself hydrated and the energy levels up.
