Full description
Great Barrier Island is considered a marine paradise and has some of the best diving here in the Hauraki Gulf. Join us on a 2 day fully inclusive live-a-board trip to explore underwater nooks and crannies, catch a cray or dive a shipwreck. Great Barrier has a huge range of dive sites making it an ideal destination for both scuba divers and spearfishing alike. Popular sites include a broken island and pigeons. Join us on a 2 day fully inclusive liveaboard trip, and experience between 2 - 4 dives per day from our boat, depending on depth and duration of dives. The accommodation on our boat Hawere is bunk style (you will need a sleeping bag or similar), and meals and gear hire are included. NOTE: The dives are self-guided and for experienced divers who have logged at least 10 dives and have a minimum of open water certification. You must also have dived within the last 12 months – contact us if you need a refresher course.
