NZ's most epic wreck (in recreational depths) to play with, the stunning location of the Marlborough Sounds, plus food and accomodation thrown in - what more could you want from a dive trip?! Join Waiheke Dive & Snorkel boss man Adam on this awesome trip!


The Lermontov Wreck is an absolute stunner. This 115m, 20,000 tonne cruise liner sunk in the sounds back in 1986 and has become one of the most substantial 'easily' divable wrecks in the southern hemisphere!

There is a huge amount of history to this wreck, and some 'mysterious' circumstances before it's sinking - well with a read before the trip and you'll learn even more at the Lermontov Lodge on the trip itself!

The trip departs from either Picton or Blenheim, depending on how you get to the South Island. From there we make our way to the Lermontov Lodge in the sounds by road. 5 nights in the sounds, with 4 days diving this stunning wreck. Meals and accom included too!

This trip absolutely will sell out - book your spot while you can! 

Package Includes:

  • Transfers from Blenheim airport / Picton to the Lermontov Lodge
  • 8 Boat Dives (minimum)
  • Air fills (nitrox available at extra cost)
  • Meals
  • 5 night shared dorm style accomodation.

Please note - this trip is suitable for Advanced Open Water or higher certified divers with a minimum of 50 dives and recent experience in NZ's temperate climate. This is also the perfect time to get that Enriched Air (Nitrox) course completed as these are the ideal dives for Nitrox users!
