Join us for a 2 night liveaboard charter to Mayor Island, departing from Tauranga Marina aboard Enterprise.
Mayor Island offers numerous awesome dive sites both inside and outside of the marine reserve located at the northern quarter of the island. The reserve was established in 1993 and boasts a huge variety of fish and sea creatures that makes this a stunning dive.
Tuhua Reef is always a favourite, where you can catch a cray or two and get amongst the huge schools of trevalli and kingfish. Regardless of whether you enjoy photography, hunting or just having a look, there is something for everyone.
Evenings are spent onboard in a sheltered bay, which is a great vantage point to experience the dawn chorus from the abundance of tui, bellbirds and robins, before hearing out to dive the many outstanding sites the island has to offer.
