Scuba Diving & Snorkelling Experiences In New Zealand

Discover a whole new world below the waves and take on the adventure of a lifetime with a snorkelling or scuba diving experience in New Zealand. Renowned for its incredible marine life and colourful reefs and corals, there’s nothing like diving into the deep blue in New Zealand.

What’s the difference between snorkelling & scuba diving?

While there are quite a few logistical differences between snorkelling and scuba diving, the major difference between the two activities is how deep you go into the water. With a snorkel, you’re limited to going only as far as your snorkel will reach. While, of course, you can dive deeper into the water with a snorkel to take a closer look at whatever tickles your fancy, a snorkel only allows you to savour the moment from closer to the water’s surface.

Scuba diving, on the other hand, gives you the potential to (almost) dive as deep as you’d like. Armed with an oxygen tank that allows you to completely immerse yourself into the deep blue world below, scuba diving allows you to stay underwater for longer, which can give you a more seamless and hands-on experience with coral reefs and marine life.
