Description

Indulge in an unforgettable adventure that lets you glimpse the wildlife of the Hauraki Gulf while foraging for your dinner. Cruise out into the coastal waters protected by the Great Barrier Reef and participate in 2 self-guided dives while searching for crayfish and scallops to bring back to shore.

Join a seasoned guide and get outfitted with a wetsuit, dive mask, and fins. Then, climb aboard a well-appointed dive charter and motor out into the flowing gulf waters. Your vessel makes quick work of the waves and provides a pleasant cruising experience. Keep your eyes peeled for bottlenose and common dolphin spouting beside the boat. Then, select an ideal location for your first dive.

After suiting up, take the plunge, revelling in the cerulean depths of Hauraki Gulf. In between your 2 self-guided dives, allow your guide to teach you tips and tricks for procuring crayfish and scallops. Savour a light lunch on the boat before heading back to shore. Return to the marina with your fresh catch in tow.
