New Zealand’s nutrient rich waters attract a variety of life, however the highlight for many divers are the spiny sea dragons which dwell in the spectacular Milford Sound. While New Zealand is a sanctuary for macro life such as nudibranchs, sea sponges and coral, there are also larger marine species that grace the waters. The warmer waters of the South Island attract vast schools of tropical and large pelagic fish that lure species such as bronze whaler and mako sharks, as well as tuna, kingfish and marlin.
There is nothing quite like diving through the serene kelp forests of the South Island's Aramoana Mole dive site, where you can glide through giant stems of kelp that wave in the current searching for the sun.
