Poor Knights Islands Day Trip

Why not come diving with us?

A day trip to the Poor Knights Islands is a great way to spend a Sunday. We head out every second Sunday from Tutukaka for two dives, normally at two different sites unless the first site is worth a second visit. During the surface interval we may take a tour of the islands for those divers who haven't visited them before.

The trip is aimed at experienced divers as there is not a guide on board. But don't worry if you haven't got a dive buddy, we will buddy you up with a suitable buddy.

Trip Requirements

  • If you haven't been in the water for over 12 months or haven't dived in cold water and used a 7mm suit, then book onto a refresher in our pool before the trip.  This will ensure you are comfortable in the water before we go on the trip.
  • Bring along a copy of your dive certification.
  • Please Note: Lunch is not included, so please be sure to bring along refreshments to keep yourself hydrated and the energy levels up.

Transportation is not provided by Dive Now Whangarei, but we do our best to help organise car pooling to the dive sites.


Your trip deposit or full payment secures your space. Any outstanding balances are due a week before departure.

If you cancel your space on a trip within 7 days or less of departure you will incur a 100% cancellation fee. Generally trip payments once made are non-refundable, but most trips have a waiting list and we will do our best to find someone to take your space in the event you need to pull out. You can help us, and improve your chance of a refund, by finding your own replacement.

If a trip is cancelled by us due to weather or for safety reasons, a full refund or store credit will be given. Trip pricing does not include transport. You will need to make your own way to the vessel departure point.
