I would jump on board as often as possible. Would expect to pay anything from 50 - 100 dollars for two dives with my own gear.

I no that splash in Wgtn were 60 bucks for two dives... Although my memory at times fails me...

There are already plenty. Just about every dive shop has one.
Check out adventurer watersports Manukau.
They have a 7m Ali boat that is out most weekends.

It'd be nice to be able to do a day at work and then just hop on a boat for 2-3 hrs and go for a quick dive, I think the travel that the boat would have to do in Auckland may hinder...

thats the idea,,

takes only 30 min to reach the noises, and there have beenb a few crays around lately too, and shit loads of scallops.

let me sound this idea,
one dive for scallops or cray, then a fish on the way back, beeer or champagne as the sun sets..

the adventure ed boat, i have never seen an advertisement with their trips, more than likely just their club members, what about a boat that every one knows about from every club

Anyone can go on the adventure water sports boat. It is cheaper if you are a club member.
Not to mention the wicked air fill prices you get. $3 a fill and the sixth one free!!! Thats $2.50 a fill at 230 bar.

I am a member but dont use their boat as I have my own. But the air fill price is reason enuf for me.
