Right on Auckland’s doorstep lies the Hauraki Gulf, a boating and diving paradise to New Zealand. This experience is a great opportunity to see Hammerhead sharks as they migrate and bask themselves in the warm waters of the region which takes place for a few shorts weeks each year when the water is warm and the visibility great.

Your day will start with a full safety briefing at the dive centre headquarters in Warkworth followed by a 30 minute drive to the launch site at Omaha Marina. A high powered boat will take you out to the islands where you will enjoy two dives. In additional to the Hammerheads you may also come up close with dolphins, sting rays and the beautiful reef fish.

The two tank dives will be at locations and depths suitable to your experience and abilities. In between, take a moment to relax with a light lunch break.
