Shore diving is a relaxed, easy and affordable way to get in the water!
We go diving every day, and we're super flexible, so if your preferred dates are not here or you would like a 2 tank dive day then just get in touch!
Join one of the Waiheke Dive team for a chilled out dive from one of the stunning beaches here on Waiheke.
You'll meet us at the shop at the booked time for your dive or dives. First we'll introduce you to your guide for your adventure, before you complete the required paperwork, show proof of certification and hire any equipment that you need. Then, with your guide you'll head to the chosen shore dive location. After a thorough briefing you'll get into the water and explore!
After your dive, you'll either come back to the store or enjoy a chilled out surface interval depending on if you've booked in for one or two dives.
Divers of all certification levels are more than welcome, and these dives are particularly popular with new or returning divers simply because they are a super relaxed, shallow and easy way to get in the water with a PADI dive professional as your guide!
If you have a buddy that's booked on too then awesome! If not we're more than happy to buddy you up with a similarly experienced and qualified diver so everyone has a great time.
Simple & easy. Just like diving should be!
Why explore with us?
We want you to enjoy exploring the waters around Waiheke so we keep the groups nice and small for these dives, with no more than 4 divers to a guide. That way you get to have more fun, see more cool stuff and don't get sucked into the pressures of big groups!
- Simply book online, and soon after you'll get a confirmation email from the team along with some specific info. You'll need to let us know if you have any gear hire requirements (see note below), provide proof of your certification and experience levels and complete the appropriate medical (click here to view the medical form) and liability release forms.
- For gear hire - details and prices can be found here. If you're doing 2 dives with us, then it's just an extra cylinder and second shore dive fee - we don't charge the 'full' gear hire cost twice!
- Local shore dives are for certified divers only - if you’re not a certified diver, and want to give SCUBA diving a go, then click here to learn about the PADI discover scuba diving program!
