"Poor Knight's Island" Tutukaka by kenmerk

Tutukaka Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 33 photos

Poor Knights Island is New Zealand's Premier dive destination, located 24 km's off the coast of the Northland near Tutukaka...

Famous in part because Jacque Cousteau once said he like it... The islands are somewhat unique due to the mix of tropical and temperate currents (and fish) here....

Just be prepared for a chilly dive, as this is 5 mm wet suit country... (We not in the Bahamas anymore, man...)

    Your page cools down my summer a little bit. I should go to Poor Knight too to avoid the hot hot hot summer here.
