This is not a dive report, just a couple of pictures from two places I like a lot. One of them is popular for scuba diving training, I haven’t seen a diver in the the other one. I am talking about Matheson Bay and Mahurangi Harbour.
2/8/2018 A very cool winter muck dive in a quite clear and cold water of Matheson Bay. I spent 90 minutes in the bay on the flat rocky bottom that was partially covered with coarse sand waiting for cool critters to appear. Posledný ponor v zátoke Matheson bol veľmi príjemný, voda bola studená, ale čistá. […]

On a good day there can be plenty of usual nudibranches, sea hares there; I saw seahorses, rare nudibranches and a […]
5/11/2016 (603) I went for a morning dive, the weather was not very promising, quite heavy showers on my way from Auckland.
