What to expect from our trips
We are the only dedicated Snorkelling trip in the Bay of Islands, so we are focused on giving you value for money and creating great memories
from your time in our beautiful back yard.
With two sites planned for most of our trips, our main focus is in the No take zone of Deep Water Cove, with its well known clear waters, it is filled with plentiful and varied marine life, which also makes it fun for us – as we never know what else will turn up… explore a massive archway, amazing underwater scenery and have fun with cheeky fish that will make you laugh!
*If weather conditions do not allow us to get there, we have other locations up our sleeves.
Even though the waters here are warm, we provide wet-suits so you able to spend more time in the water, also a hot water shower for when you get out of the water and hot soup!
Our well traveled and experienced snorkelers have described our trip as world class and many put the area on a par with The Poor Knights!

MAKE A DAY OF IT
We can drop you off on Urupukapuka Island after your morning snorkelling trip. Spend the afternoon kayaking, paddle boarding, relaxing at Otehei Bay’s Cafe & bar, or exploring some of New Zealand’s most stunning walking tracks.
For $25 extra per person, the ferries are regular that you can choose which one to take to get you home. (Summer season when ferries are operating)
We can provide personal assistance and floatation aid for those less confident in water, to make you feel more at ease. Snorkelling in calm waters from an anchored boat provides a no pressure situation.
We have a well-equipped first aid kit and our crew are fully trained in all situations.
The waters here in NZ are safe waters to swim in, without the regular dangers that other countries have to worry about.
