ABOUT THE WDC

Waikawa Dive Centre offers you professional dive training in a relaxed style. We also do eco dive trips within Queen Charlotte Sound and wreck dives, including the Mikhail Lermontov cruise ship wreck in Port Gore, in the outer Marlborough Sounds region.

We have a full retail shop and hire dive gear. Our water temps are about 13-18 degrees Celsius so a wetsuit is required. Our hire suits are warm, 7 mm two piece quality suits.

There is plenty to see in Queen Charlotte Sound, with a coastline of more than 40 km, and many little bays on either side. Pulling into a bay you will hear native birdsong, and there are often Little Blue penguins, dolphins, seals, and seabirds to see on the way out. Lucky students have also seen Orca while dive training.

Oh, and by the way, snorkellers and non-diving companions are welcome too.

WHERE ARE WE?

Picton has two marinas - Picton Marina and Waikawa Marina. We're located on Marina Drive - off Beach Rd or the road to Waikawa Marina. If you came on the Ferry, you go through the roundabout in the centre of town and go straight onto Waikawa Road. If you take the lower roundabout around the water front, you will need to turn left onto Waikawa Road. The Waikawa Marina sign will help you from there.
