Hi There, I want to do some diving at the Bay of Island (Rainbow Warrior) as an advanced Open Water diver. Suggestions about dive trips / operators / costs and the best place to start the trip. Rgds, Sam
The dive operators in Pahia is doing dive tours to the Rainbow Warrior. Have a look at google with the prase "diving Rainbow Warrior Pahia" and you'll find the info you need.
There's currently 2 dive shops in Paihia and one from Tutukaka, see them both at:
I would recommend going from Tutukaka to the Poor Knights Islands (Tutukaka is close to Whanagrei which is about 40 minutes from Paihia). The Poor Knights were rated by the big man Jacques Cousteau as being in the top 5 cool-water diving spots...
