New Zealand is a great place to dive
Hundreds of diving sites are spread over 20,000 miles of coast line and numerous lakes and rivers. Many of these sites are world class. The country abounds with sub-tropical reefs, wrecks, clear water springs, and alpine fiords. Members of the dive industry in New Zealand are friendly and will be pleased to assist with free information and advice. Services such as dive equipment, training, trips, and boat charters are affordable and close at hand.
newzealandtourist.com has reviewed many of the web sites and can recommend the following:
- Dive Site Index. You can examine dive regions in both the North and South Islands.
- Charter Boat Listing. Over 150 charter boats are listed along with photos, descriptions, rates, and contact information.
- DIVER Magazine Article. Some firsthand experience information can be found in an article by Gavin Anderson which appeared in DIVER in August, 1997. He points out that some of the best diving is found around the many little offshore islands.
