Posted by Waidroka Bay Resort

Ocean Water Temperature– Water temperature reaches a low of 24 degrees Celsius (74 degrees Fahrenheit) around July and August and a high of around 28 degrees Celsius (82 degrees Fahrenheit) in February and March. We recommend a 5mm wetsuit in the winter months and a 3mm in summer (depending on how cold you get).

Safety – whilst diving, safety is of paramount importance to us. Our experienced guides are all First Aid and Oxygen trained. Each boat has a licensed driver, life jackets, first aid, oxygen, and communication equipment to reach the resort at any time. The captains provide surface watch and are ready to pick up divers upon surfacing.

Equipment – We have a full range of diving basics available for rental. Our tanks mainly have yoke vales, however, a number are DIN/yoke convertible, please let your guide know if you require DIN tanks.

Group size/Guides – We have a number of experienced guides who will assist you with your diving. our maximum dive group capacity is 24 divers, whilst ratio of guides to divers is 6:1. often groups are smaller and more personalized depending on the number of divers staying in the hotel.

Diving conditions – Waidroka Bay Resort is close to a large number of dive sites. Conditions can vary from site to site and from day to day. We do sometimes experience strong currents on some sites; guides will inform you of conditions prior to entering the water and will pick sites suitable to the experience level and the wishes of the group.

Visibility – Generally better in the winter months, visibility can range from 20-40m.
