We had a great experience with Yukon dive! The day started at the pier where we were decked out with all the gear we needed for our dive. All the gear was relatively new and well maintained, being thick enough to counter the quite cold water. We then met the skipper, other travellers and staff and were on our way... More

I couldn't imagine a more perfect way to experience what diving the Poor Knights has to offer than with Yukon Dive. Their experienced crew are extremely nice and fun to dive with, and know a lot about the wildlife in the area. Our group had divers of every level, from open-water, to professional divers that couldn't get enough of Poor... More

A fabulous two day live-aboard experience, allowing for seven amazing dives. Excellent attentive and safety conscious crew (tech diver friendly), very homely twin-hulled boat from which to enjoy the Poor Knights, and delicious meals and snacks.

We spent the whole day snorkelling and observing fish, guided to most interesting places by our skipper Glen, who answered all of our questions about the places and the sealife. Together with his crew, Marie, they also provided us with interesting stories about the origins of the islands' name, history and the wildlife. During the cruise to the islands we... More

Perfect day with the Yukon team ! We was lucky as we started the day with plenty of dolphins playing around the boat. Then the different spots for snorkeling was very nice (don't hesitate to take a full wetsuit the water is cold). Totally recommend it :)

Just had a weekend with Yukon Dive, diving the Poor Knights. The staff were fantastic, really knowledgeable about the sites. The boat was spacious, food tasty, and weather couldn't have been better. Can't wait for my next trip back north again!

Great guides with a wealth of knowledge between them so make sure to ask questions! Easy, relaxed feel to the whole day with a smart set up. It was a rather cold day for snorkelling so would recommend not being too shy to ask for a full length wetsuit. For the diving side, if you're in need of a quick... More

Great company who delivered. Their opposition gave us a lot of mixed messages which could've ruined are plans. Lucky for us Yukon dive was more professional. We had a group of 5 all at different levels. 2 scuba and 3 snorkelers. We were all looked after.
