Discover the special marine life under Fiordland’s tranquil waters on an unforgettable diving expedition.
This is a great opportunity to get close up views of the unique coral and the great variety of fish that inhabit the Fiordland Deep.
You will in most cases have to bring some (if not all) of your own diving gear - consult the tour operator for more information.

Spacer Diving Requirements
On most of the diving expeditions in Fiordland, you will need to have had some prior diving experience and be able to present your certification card before diving. With some dive operators PADI dive courses (Open Water, Advanced, Rescue, and Divemaster), speciality dives and boat charters are available on request.
You will also have to bring with you some (if not all) of your own diving gear.

Spacer Dive Milford Sound
For the complete Milford Sound experience, diving is hard to beat. Dive among the scenic splendour of Milford Sound and view black and red coral, sea pens and braciapods, not to mention the great multitude of fish life that grace the southern fiords.

You will leave from your Te Anau accommodation early in the morning, so you can sit back and enjoy the Fiordland scenery along the famous Milford Road.
Once at Milford, a purpose built dive boat will take you out into the sound before you drop into the water and explore the Milford Deep.

Spacer Dive Doubtful Sound
Diving is available summer or winter on Doubtful Sound through a number of operators, but these trips must be specially chartered.
Winter is a great time to dive in Doubtful Sound with little variation in water temperature from summer and a lot less rain with long periods of clear skies and little or no sea breezes.

Diving on Doubtful Sound must be arranged through specially chartered trips. You will in most cases, have to bring some (if not all) of your own diving gear - consult the tour operator for more information.
