Dive Trips

At Auckland Scuba we like to get out diving as much as we can to the best dive sites (why else would you own a dive centre?). Our Auckland Scuba divers make regular trips out across the north island to hit the best scuba spots we can find. Check back with us regularly for the latest list of our planned dive trips.
