Time : 7:30am - 5:30pm
Cost : $170 per person (rental equipment is additional)
Sitting in 27 metres of water the tug ‘Taioma’ is a great dive, full of life and colour. The ocean is slowly claiming her, but she will continue to be a lovely dive for many years to come.
Note: The Taioma lies in water deeper than 18m/60ft. As such, any Open Water divers who wish to dive the wreck must do so in conjunction with a PADI Deep Adventure Dive (which will contribute to their Advanced Open Water certification). This costs an additional $50.
We meet at Dive Zone Tauranga at 7:30am to complete the necessary pre-dive registration & to arrange any rental gear requirements that you may have.
Complimentary transport from Dive Zone to the marina is available.
Bookings are essential for all trips, & a deposit of $60 per person is required to secure your booking. Please note that deposits are only refundable if the trip is cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.
The Taioma is an advanced dive site, at times subject to strong currents and swells - we reserve the right to pick alternative dive sites if the conditions do not allow us to safely dive The Taioma.
Use of your own wetsuit, BCD &/or regulators is subject to a safety inspection prior to departure. If you would like to use your own BCD, you must be equipped with a visual signalling device (safety sausage or similar), an audible signalling device (whistle) & a dive knife or line cutting tool. Your BCD/regs must also contain an alternate air source (octi).
We reserve the right to refuse use of any equipment that does not meet our inspection standards in the interest of your safety.
