Diving’s Best Kept Secret

Jacques Cousteau named the Poor Knights Islands one of the world’s top ten dive sites and Australian travel writer Nigel Marsh agrees. Located 24km off the coastline of Tutukaka, 200km north of Auckland, the Poor Knights Islands are home to more than 60 recognised dive sites. Rather than simply taking a day trip, Marsh recommends experiencing Poor Knights from the live-aboard boat Mazurka, owned and operated by Glenn and Tiana Edney. “Glenn has been diving the Poor Knights Islands for almost 20 years and is one of New Zealand’s most famous underwater photographers,” he writes. “When not diving or eating the wonderful food cooked by Tiana and Glenn, we would just marvel at the islands towering above us, watching sea birds glide along the cliff face.”
