The Rainbow Warrior is 40m long and in 27m of water. She is the smallest of three Northland shipwrecks and although all of them carry a rich history, the Rainbow Warrior’s history is surrounded in intrigue, mystery, and international espionage. One of the world’s most premier dive sites.
Dear to the heart of all New Zealander’s, the Rainbow Warrior was Greenpeace's flagship. It was on its way to protest France's nuclear testing on the Mururoa Atoll when it was sunk by French saboteurs on July 10, 1985, in Auckland Harbour.
After the bombing Greenpeace gifted the Rainbow Warrior to the sea and her home is now in the Cavalli Islands as an artificial reef and refuge for the marine life which she was sunk trying to protect.
At a maximum depth of 27m, the Rainbow Warrior is now home to a huge variety of aquatic life and is a world renowned dive site.
The Rainbow Warrior is one of the world's premier wreck dives, and truly is the 'Jewel of the North' giving life to the phrase, "When man has destroyed the world through his greed, the Warriors of the Rainbow will arise to save it again".
