COME ON A DIVING ADVENTURE TO REMEMBER
Tairua is home to some of the world’s best temperate water scuba diving and spear fishing.
Lying 12 miles off the coast is the world class diving of the Aldermen Islands. This jurassic group of rocks and islands is the remnant of a volcanic eruption some 5 million years ago! The islands lie close to the continental shelf and are visited in summer by whales, manta rays, sharks and pelagic fish. Year round they are home to the colourful ray of New Zealand’s fish species, especially the colourful sanddaggers wrasse, eagle and stingrays, kingfish and snapper.
If hunting a feed of seafood is more your thing, we and chase crayfish, scallops, or spearfish for yellowtail kingfish and snapper on request.
Some of our best diving is close to home, with islands like Shoe, Castle, King Rock and Slipper Island all within minutes of Tairua harbour.
Check out some of our diving adventures from over the years, and get in touch if you’d like to come on a scuba diving or freediving adventure with us.

An awesome Christmas and New Years spent with friends and family diving for crayfish and scallops and spearfishing for kingfish in blue water, great times!
An awesome weekend away at Great Mercury Island fishing and diving
Flying into Fiordland is about as close as you come to time travel. As our helicopter floated through the mist into Dusky Sound it was like we had travelled back 20,000 years....
One of the best family breaks ever, fishing, diving and eating seafood at my favourite summer spot - Opito Bay!
