Marlborough Sounds Trip

January 20, 2024

Time for a dive trip to the Marlborough Sounds with Dive HQ. We took the ferry from Wellington to Picton. The ride into the sounds is always amazing.

We stayed in Waikawa and dove with Stuart, owner and operator of the Waikawa Dive Centre. He's a good sort with a real passion for showing people around the sounds. He's got this beauty setup in his dive shop as well.

We did 8 dives over 3 days, 5 of which were wreck dives. It was consistently good diving with something genuinely interesting on every dive.

  1. The Koi Wreck
  2. Double Cove
  3. The Mikhail Lermontov Wreck
  4. Black Head
  5. The Lastingham Wreck
  6. The Prince of Wales Wreck
  7. The Vara Wreck
  8. Tory Channel Drift Dive

Diving in the Marlborough Sounds from Waikawa is great.

I love diving in New Zealand.
