Activities Under The Water

Enjoy the breathtaking scenery that can only be experienced by diving or snorkeling the unique waters of the Bay of Islands. We are lucky that the East Auckland Current washes down the coast bringing tropical fish to Cape Brett.

During the summer you can see Short-tail Stingrays, large schools of Blue Maomao, and big Pelagics like Kingfish or walls covered in Jewel Anemones and Sponges. In winter months the visibility can be astounding, and Fur Seals often visit our sheltered waters. The Bay of Islands also has arguably the two best wreck dives in New Zealand, with the Greenpeace ship the Rainbow Warrior, and the HMNZS Canterbury both rich with stories and sealife.
