Another year and another trip to Northland with a crew from Dive Wellington heading up to Northland Dive. This year I had a good friend along for the trip. It was nice being able to play the knowledgable dive guide as the previous two years were still relatively fresh in my mind.
As usual the first dive of the trip was a backroll off of a rib boat and descent to 28m. We were immediately greeted by this Demoiselle protecting his turf.
The Jewel Anemone were looking healthy.
Cyclone Cody had passed by northern New Zealand and the region saw some massive swells. It was enough to snap the buoy line attached to the bow. At least what was left made for an interesting picture.

The bow has some interesting angles on it.

On the way back to mid-ship we saw some interesting critters.
The buoy on the line attached to mid-ship looked positively alien. I managed to get a couple of shots before it was time to ascend.
