Northland Dive Wreck/Reef Trip

Come up with us to the Canterbury Wreck for some world class diving right here in New Zealand. The former Navy Frigate Canterbury F421 now rests in Deep Water Cove near Cape Brett. Upright and intact, she makes for an impressive sight in a great dive location! Divers hit the bow at about 20m and can swim through the bridge to the helicopter hanger at 27m. The upper deck, bridge and first floor levels are easily within recreational diving range. The lower levels are for more advanced divers with the stern resting at approximately 36m. Fish are already making themselves at home aboard the Canterbury, with resident schools in the bridge and around the funnel. 

The HMNZS Canterbury was decommissioned at the end of March 2005 and was scuttled on 3 November 2007 making for a great artificial reef wreck dive. The exterior has an increasing amount of growth and marine life on it due to the Rahui (Marine protected area) which has been placed over Deep Water Cove.

Board at the Northland Dive lodge is included, which has options for double, single and bunk rooms. For the more out-door types, there are several camp sites. Meals are catered (no chance of going hungry). You also have a variety of après-dive entertainment such as pool, darts, tv/dvd, reading material, cards and board games. This package includes a space in the bunk rooms but you may choose to upgrade, subject to availability at an additional cost.

What to bring:

  • Certification Card/Log Book
  • Sleeping Bag if in Dorm Room
  • Towel
  • Provisions - Snacks & post dive drinks (light breakfast, Lunch & Dinner are supplied)
  • Sun Hat
  • Wind Proof Jacket

Bringing your own Gear?

It’s always reassuring diving with equipment that you own & trust.  And the joys of owning your own equipment is ensuring it has been serviced and in good working order.  If you, NZ Dive School or Northland Dive feels any of your equipment is faulty or not fit for the conditions we have plenty of gear for hire.
