4 dives all with great sea life, 2 wreck dives and two caves to explore.

I stayed with them and the rooms were clean and tidy, the food was excellent and the people very friendly. Given I had not dived for awhile the gentle support was appreciated and the share number of options to dive meant if the weather did not work in one spot we went to another not too far away. This is my second time diving with Northland Dive and I will be back.

Thanks Julia, Shane, Andy and Leann.

The liveaboard is a great addition to the Northland Dive family. Had yet another amazing weekend with them without staying at the lodge. We dived at 6 different sites, 3 where I'd never been, so was great to gain a better perspective on the Poor Knights with new sites. The liveaboard is set up so well. Cosy and comfortable with nitrox filling between dives. And we saw a few new nudi's as well as one that was mind blowing. Best value diving around, they're organised, safe and the food is great. The day trips on the rib are pretty good but the liveaboard is next level again.
Thanks Shane and Julia.

I come here a lot. Share and Julia are amazing. It’s a home away from home very relaxed atmosphere with great food and excellent diving. I would recommend a weekend away to anyone.

The lodge is big, comfortable and friendly with double rooms or dorms. Space for cleaning and storing dive gear is well organised. There are different launching possibilities for just about all weather and sheltered dive sites.
I was supposed to be going on their live aboard to the Poor Knights, but it was too rough so we did sheltered day trips to the wreck of the Canterbury and reef diving. I was not disappointed and Shane, Julia and the crew made us all feel at home in the lodge and safe diving. Thanks for a great weekend.
