Diving and Snorkeling in Coromandel, New Zealand

12 Guests

About This Boat

We are available for day trips around the Coromandel coastline and islands, leaving from either Kennedy Bay or Coromandel.
We specialise in overnight trips to Great Barrier Island, Cuvier Island, and the Mercury Islands.
We enjoy taking groups for two or three days to truly experience the magic of the area and its marine wildlife.
We can tailor trips for fishers, divers, trampers, holidaymakers, or for special events.

Annual fishing trio for a bunch of workmates
With the tide coming in, the lads loaded up the boat and headed out into the rising sun, setting the trolling lures as we scooted around the mussel farms in Kennedy Bay. It wasn’t long before two of the reels started to scream. After a five minute battle, two skipjack tuna were reeled aboard. ‘Great for our sashimi platter tonight’, said Skipper Peter. Then it was off to Cuvier Island, as the sun rose on a clear calm sea. Two hours later, over went the jigs again and great excitement as six hooked up on some nice-sized kingfish. After that excitement, it was time to try some drop lines for hapuka. After several drops, the crew were rewarded with two of these elusive and iconic fish.

A diving reunion
A group of nine mates from around the country met up at Kennedy Bay with diving tanks and snorkelling gear. The plan was to steam to the Mokohinau Islands, skirting around the coast of Little Barrier Island (Hauturu). This group was lucky enough to encounter a large group of common dolphins that spent some quality time with Te Wairoa, leaping, chasing and rolling over, much to the delight of all on board. The night at the Mokohinaus was magical.
