Midweek Dives at The Aldermans!

Winter has definitely arrived however last week we escaped Auckland for two days diving at the Aldermans. We had two frosty starts but despite this the boat was full both days and we all enjoyed two days of amazing diving with visibility being 15 – 20m most dives.

It was our first trip to The Aldermans on our boat Whaakari Express however it will definitely not be the last! We came across large schools of Maomao, patrolling Kingfish and countless Demoiselles kept us entertained on every dive. The islands are just over 20km offshore from Tairua and with the close to perfect conditions we were there in no time at all.

Keep an eye on our tripĀ schedule as we will be adding more trips to the Aldermans in the coming months, or join us for our other trips to the Poor Knights, Bay of Islands, Cavalli Islands and more!
