Waiheke Local Boat Diving
Local boat diving is the best way to explore the waters around Auckland!
Hop on a local boat dive and explore some of the great dive sites that can be found around Waiheke, that just can't be accessed from shore! There are underwater pinnacles, rocky reefs and drop offs that can be full of life!
We head out on one of the locally owned RHIBs, which are perfect for diving. They're fast, agile and even able to load divers from the beach if we need to! The skippers are all experienced with divers needs and, of course, hold all the relevant qualifications.
Generally these trips are suitable for all levels of qualified diver. We do run dedicated trips to deeper dive sites for suitably qualified and experienced divers, but these will always be clearly stated so you don't book onto the wrong boat trip! Full day trips are for 2 dives.
Simply book online, and soon after you'll get a confirmation email from the team along with some specific info. You'll need to let us know if you have any gear hire requirements (to be paid separately), provide proof of your certification and experience levels and complete the appropriate medical and liability release forms.
We'll choose the particular dive sites for each trip based on the weather conditions on the day itself. You just meet us at the chosen loading ramp or dock for your dive! Very often we're able to help arrange carpooling, so just let us know if you're coming over on the ferry and we'll help out if we can.
If you have a buddy that's booked on too then awesome! If not we're more than happy to buddy you up with a similarly experienced and qualified diver so everyone has a great time.
Please note that, generally, these dives are 'un-guided' so you dive in buddy pairs. If you specifically want a guide then just get in touch, but there may have to be an additional charge depending on staff availability.
