New Zealand Best Dive Spots Points Locations Sites

Mercury and Aldermen Islands
Where are they: Coromandel Peninsula

What makes them special: Remnants of a volcanic complex, the Aldermen Islands lie to the southeast of Mercury Bay. These rocky islands offer tunnels, pinnacles and a variety of pelagic species, including huge schools of mackerel.

The dives are colorful and similar in nature to the Poor Knights, making the islands one of New Zealand’s top dive destinations. The nearby Mercury Islands offer moray eels, crayfish, abundant nudibranchs and stunning above-water scenery of white, sandy bays and rugged coastline.

Details: There are many dive sites at different depths, making these islands suitable for both novice and experienced divers. Water temperatures range from approximately 57 F (14 C) in winter to 70 F (21 C) in late summer. You’ll want at least a 5 mm wetsuit in the summer, and a 7 mm or more in the winter, depending on your cold tolerance.

When to go: There’s diving year-round. Summer offers the best water temperature and climate for exploring the popular coastline during dry days.
