The trip starts at the Paihia dive shop in Paihia; we organize your diving equipment and load the boat to head out to Deep Water Cove at the entrance to the Bay of Islands.
The HMNZS Canterbury Wreck is 11.4m long.
She lies in one of the most stunning and sheltered locations in the bay. Accessible almost everyday, a trip to Deep Water Cove will take you through the heart of the Bay of Islands.
New Zealand’s newest wreck has only been submerged for five years, but already large kingfish and other marine life call this wreck home. Dive sites at Deep Water Cove, and Cape Brett cater to all levels with a variety of depth and attractions.
Other wreck dives departing paihia is the Rainbow Warrior. Bombed in Auckland Harbour by French Secret Service agents on July 10th 1985, the wreck was relocated off the Cavalli Islands two years later. This artificial reef has matured into an ever-growing host to marine life and is an excellent shallow water wreck dive suitable for certified open water divers.
