Description

Whether you love diving around submerged ships, admire marine life in its natural habitat, seek spectacular underwater geology, are a novice or experienced diver, Top New Zealand Dive Sites has plenty to offer everyone! New Zealand's islands are like no other in the world. They extend through a wide latitude range, their 15,000 kilometres of coastline surrounded by three bodies of water: the Tasman Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the Southern Ocean - all of which provide a stunning array of underwater architecture and unique marine wildlife to explore. Top New Zealand Dive Sites presents a lively selection of the best and most accessible sites from around the country. These are detailed within seven regions: Northland; The Poor Knights; Hauraki Gulf; East Coast and Bay of Plenty; Cook Strait; Fiordland; Lower South Island and Stewart Island. Each site entry gives location and access, depth range, currents and diving environment, dive type, proficiency level and wildlife to look out for. Throughout the book, Maori and general history surrounding each site is given, as well as information on specific flora and fauna. A fish species identification guide and list of diving operators add further value to an already practical resource.show more
