Your go to dive company for diving the Poor Knights islands plus the Canterbury wreck and other dive spots.

Great hospitality with Julia and Shane providing fantastic accommodation in their lodge and onboard their dive boat Sun Spy. Awesome meals after diving. Very friendly owners along with Adam and Emma.

Very reasonable pricing for the 5 days of diving along with nitrox at also very reasonable pricing.

Great knowledge of the poor knights dive sites and the Canterbury wreck plus other sites.

Highly recommend Shane and Julia for all your northland diving!!

Will be back for some more diving for sure and to explore more areas of the Canterbury wreck!!!

Thank you for the amazing diving and the fantastic hospitality.

Grant it was our absolutely pleasure!

It was a shame the visibility in the Bay of Islands wasn't as good as the Poor Knights but that gives you something to look forward to on your next visit!

The Canterbury Wreck is a stunning dive with plenty of rooms to explore and an ever increasing number of fish schooling around and inside the wreck.

We look forward to seeing you again SOON!!

Fantastic 3 days aboard Sun Spy Live aboard. Julia, Shane and Emma were all very accommodating and helpful. Shane is a very capable captain and took us to some great diving spots at the Poor Knights.

Levi, it was an absolute pleasure having you around and getting hugs....loved it.
Putahataha Island is one of our favorite fishy dives with super friendly fish so we knew your group would love it.
All the best with the rest of your course

Cheers
