Too far away? Way out East? Well, you could be in for a surprise, the area has a lot to offer, including some fantastic diving.

Leigh Bishop –
International deep technical diver.
Te Waikoropupu Springs –
For divers and in particular underwater photographers the clarity of the spring water is an environment like no other on the planet.
Anzac Day at the Poor Knights –
There was a bevy of five mature butterfish mimicking seaweed fronds, just below the surface and totally unafraid.
Snapper at the Goat –

On board the Navyâs diving support vessel, HMNZS Manawanui , interviewing a Navy diver.
