Local Dive Trips

Join us for a two dive day trip on  board our comfortable 12 meter dive boat "Ruku Moana"

Dive trips will be running daily throughout the Christmas / New Year holiday period and most Saturdays throughout the year as well as some mid week trips during the peak summer season. Ruku Moana comfortably dives up to 8 divers and travels at 20 knots, with a toilet, shower , dry area and tea and coffee facilities on board, you can be assured of a great comfortable day out. 

Trip destination will be decided on the day by your skipper and dive guide and will depend on weather conditions and experience levels of the divers on board. Possible destinations include Mayor Island, Okaparu Reef, The Taioma , Astrolabe Reef ( The wreck of The Rena), and Plate Island.  Check out our dive sites page for full descriptions on these sites. 

Booking for these trips are essential as numbers for each trip are limited and they do fill up. 

Private dive charters are also available at a cost of $1200 per day, including a dive guide. Contact us to discuss availability
