Thanks so much for the recommendation! We love your advice to dive with us before you 'kick the bucket'!! Couldn't agree more, there's too much amazing stuff to see underwater - to miss out would be a tragedy. See you again!

Hi, Dive North shut down about a year ago. For dive trips in the Bay of Islands contact Paihia Dive or Northland Dive. Or you could try Dive! Tutukaka for the Poor Knights.
