Diving in New Zealand is an exceptional experience well known to the locals and just discovered by the international diver. The country abounds with sub-tropical reefs, wrecks, clear water springs and alpine fiords.
New Zealand lies midway between the equator and the South Pole. Its waters in the north are sub-tropical, and then temperate in the south. Jacques Cousteau loved diving in New Zealand. He rated the Poor Knights as one the top dive sites in the world, and described Fiordland as an under water wonderland.
Finally there is a dedicated live-aboard vessel for diving the Poor Knights and beyond. The Poorknights live-aboard is 24m (78 feet) kauri built launch with comfortable accommodation, spacious saloon, and well equipped galley. Her covered back deck offers a high level of diving convenience and has been designed to suit the needs of divers and photographers.
