scuba diving the Poor Knights, NZ

Here is a link to photos I took on our trip to the Poor Knights on Feb 24. Poor Knights Divers set us up in their bach and we had their nice boat to ourselves. Too bad they sent us to get our tanks filled at a diveshop that was 25 km away and closed. We learned that it is to your advantage to use the aluminium tanks they rent you in Tutukaka, because the steel tanks we rented in Auckland cost $10/tank to refill, then our dives were cancelled due to weather on Sunday. We had a great time though, and will definitely go back.
We went with fellow expat-American friends in Auckland, Adam and Roberta, and Holly and Steve. Please visit Holly's blog to read more details about our trip.
