New Zealand

Deep Water Cove Canterbury

It’s been a while since my last post.

I can’t remember what I was doing for that time till the end of February. Nothing exciting anyway.

I had a awesome holiday in Paihia New Zealand from 28 February to 17 March, catching up with my friends and few dives.

Diving on the HMNZS Canterbury F421 was the highlight of this trip. I missed out of the sinking in November 2007 ( I was there in October 2007 for that but they changed the schedule due to the weather). She is now lies on 37 meter sheltered place in the Deep Water Cove, Bay Of Islands. Her length is 113.4 metres beam 13 metres with a draught of 5.6 metres with a displacement of 3182 tonnes. I had a few dives but it wasn’t enough so I might come back in November for more! I have realized that I need a proper strobe and wide lenses for the photo like this.

Dive on the White Rock was a bit surprise for me as this site use to be nothig special, but now it was surrounded by all sort of fish and really colorful site. Black Rocks was awesome as usual.

Thanks for all my friends and Porpoise Dive for everything!

P.S. Holiday was great but I lost my camera on the way home. I have contacted Air New Zealand as I thought I lost it on the plane, and the lady on the phone was really helpful trying to find it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find it in the end but Thank you Air New Zealand!

Now I am busy sorting out what I’m gonna buy, I will report it later!
