Jacques Cousteau rated the Poor Knights Islands in the top ten dive sites in the world! A warm current passes near the islands, due to which many species of fish and corals live here.
You will head out for the hour-long journey to the Poor Knights Islands and Marine Reserve, and once you are there you will have plenty of time for snorkelling, kayaking, drinking hot drinks, enjoying the fantastic scenery and lazing about in the sun! When it is time for your dive, one of our friendly and experienced Instructors will have a chat with you to explain some of the basic principles of diving – just enough for you to have a completely safe and fun time.
You’ll get into the water together and do a couple of fundamental skills to make sure you are completely comfortable. Then the two of you will go off on your exciting dive together to check out the amazing underwater world that is the Poor Knights Islands Marine Reserve. You will do one dive to a maximum of 12 metres, with your Instructor holding your hand all the way – literally if you like!
