Jacques Cousteau named this little bit of paradise one of the top diving and snorkelling spots in the world. With some of the world's best snorkelling, breath-taking scenery, an abundance of marine mammals, the world's largest sea cave plus many other caves, sea birds everywhere, unique flora, rock history, great food, kayaking and relaxing on the large comfortable launch, this marine reserve trip cannot be beaten.
Head out 23 km on an open ocean trip to the Poor Knights islands encountering any number of marine life on the way. Once at the island there are many hidden harbours to choose from, so you will always be sheltered and comfortable. Your hosts will take you on a tour to show you the splendour of these islands including a visit right inside the world’s largest sea cave. After the tour you can enjoy snorkelling or kayaking, and a sumptuous buffet lunch onboard the boat, before heading back to shore, and Auckland.
