Poor Knights Islands Marine Reserve

Half an hour from the northern town of Whangarei in the North Island lies the beautiful Poor Knights Islands marine reserve. Located 25km off shore, the water here is renown for its clarity with horizontal visibility up to 30 metres. This combined with a wide tapestry of sea life, and you have one of the world's best dive spots. In fact, world famous underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau, considered these islands as one of the top ten dive sites in the world.
