I heard that there is a not bad spot in Silverdale.....
but surely there must be somewhere on all of our coastline where a bloke can walk in and grab some scollies or a cray without driving north a couple of hours from south auck??? and without using a boat

Ahem! Topic at hand is shore dives in South Auckland.
Nice BOV by the way. Looks very compact while still seems to get great reviews.
Can you change loop direction? and less importantly can you change LP hose input direction?

I dropped in the water and the vis was one meter at best on the surface. As I decended to the floor at 6 meters the vis dropped to 200mm. I ties off a line to my anchor and did a 360 degree search and then gave up.
OK so it wasnt a shore dive but I doubt the vis will get any better close to the shore. But if you want to do a wreck dive then try off Dudders beach where Maraetai drive turns into North Road. Take a walk around the rocks heading south east and keep an eye out for a buoy a couple of hundred meters out. Its pretty shallow but the wreck doesn't quite break the surface at low tide.
