Yeah I am definitely planning to go up to poor knights I have been wanting to all year :D just an issue of money and transport at the moment but as soon as i get that sorted im up there!. I will just try and grab any opportunities to go out for a dive i love it under the water, even in lake pupuke (what is in the lake? i have only ever heard stories of people drowning from the weed :s) . As long as i can find someone to go with and some gear to hire i will try and dive :D

Welcome Talr,

Everyone else on here already knows what I'm gonna say but here goes ....

Check out the Auckland Uni Dive club http://akunidive.com/

Lots of members who have fun, there are lots of cheap trips and heaps of diving. A wide variety of experience level so everyone and anyone can fit in.

Best of luck!

Ah, the lake.

I love the lake, I think the diving there is quite special - in it's own way! There's a lot of life, but you have to look for it. Most people see the obvious - the perch and eels, but the snails are fabulous. Particularly at night, the shells are semi-translucent and seem to absorb the light and redirect it back at you. And of course the jellyfish. The carp and trout are quite special when you see them, and there's all sorts of juve fish up in the weed.

There's also a few bits and pieces of the old pumping gear scattered around.

AUUC take anyone really. I'm not even a student, and a couple people on the committee are from AUT, and others are not students.

No commissions, just a healthy, vibrant and strong membership that makes sure the trips keep flowing, get filled and stay cheap
