Come & join New Zealand Diving & dive the former Navy Frigate Canterbury F421. She now rests in Deep Water Cove near Cape Brett. Upright and intact, she makes for an impressive sight in a great dive location! For an experienced diver this is a truly remarkable dive site, purposely sunk for divers to train upon.

Our tour caters for technical diver and advanced diver certifications. Those wishing to expand upon certifications, the Canterbury will provide an excellent site to do so.

The charter includes full gear hire and 2 x single tanks, based on recreational divers. Technical diver gear is also available for hire at additional costs. Twin set, sidemounts & stages are available. Nitrox gas is also available for those certified to use it.

What You'll Get


The HMNZS Canterbury was prepared with divers in mind; plenty of extra access points have been created to provide an ease of entry and exit, this makes for some particularly good penetration and swim through opportunities.

The charter includes 2 x tank dives and gear hire based on single tank dives. Twin sets are available providing you have the certifications for this equipment. This is an advanced dive site so minimum of deep certification will apply to the outer deck areas.
