The currents that flow through Cook strait bring with them life of all descriptions making this a very rich and colourful place to dive.
The photo was taken by myself on top of hunter bank, a pinnacle out in cook strait peaking at 15 meters and tumbling away to beyond diving depths slack water and neap tides are recommended for diving hunter's it can be spectacular.
Visability can be 30m at places like hunter bank and inshore you could expect 10m on average, more after offshore winds and no rain.
Water temperature can be up to 21 deg C midsummer on the west down to 10 deg midwinter, the south coast is usually cooler in the summer.
The west coast offers different diving to the south Wellington coast and we can visit both, we have beginner level or adventurous dive sites for all interests .
Hire gear and fills can be arranged.
The boat can take up to 6 divers .
There is user friendly entry and exit. We run from single dive trips up to day trips.
On Friday's we run a regular relaxed trip diving, fishing, spearfishing or whatever for $100 each let me know it is this option if you want it , say the Friday club trip.
If you are after a dive trip you must be self suficient ie with a dive leader and any special safety equipment because we are not a specialised dive charter boat. We can accomodate divers on a fishing charter.
