Dive the former Greenpeace Flagship, the Rainbow Warrior in the Cavalli Islands

  • The former Greenpeace vessel was fatally bombed by French 'saboteurs' whilst at anchor in the Waitemata Harbour in Auckland
  • At the time she was leading the protest against nuclear testing in the Pacific
  • She was raised and transported to the Cavalli Islands where she was intentionally sunk as an artificial reef in 1987
  • 'The Warrior' now lies in the sand at approximately 26 metres
  • There are large schools of Snapper, Blue Maomao, Kingfish as well as countless Demoiselles
  • Recent trips have encountered pods of playful Dolphins during the dives
  • Due to the Rainbow Warrior's history and the diversity of life in the area it has become one of the premier dive sites in New Zealand
  • It should be on every divers 'bucket list'
  • As it is a deeper dive, we require customers to have their Advanced Certification prior to diving, however this trip can be run in conjunction towards the Advanced Certification
  • Typically leave from Whangaroa Harbour
  • The boat trip is approximately 35-45 minutes depending on the conditions
