Community Actions

Waiheke Dive & Snorkel opened in December 2017, and right from inception we always wanted to become a positive part of Waiheke's community and engage with conservation on a local and international level. 

As part of our commitment to this stunning island and it's people, here you'll find details about some of our ongoing community actions, awards and achievements. 

If you have any cool ideas that you think would benefit the island and fit with our ethos, then please do get in touch!
