After expressing interest in wanting to dive the Poor Knight Islands, we were told that Yukon Dive was a great choice if you didn't want a big crowd. Taking that advice, we booked a 3 dive day trip with them. When we arrived at the marina, the team greeted us with smiling faces and a relaxed "I love this job" attitude. Our initial brief on the boat was thorough but to the point. The boat was well looked after and has a warm water faucet. This is a nice luxury to get you warmed up after your dives in the cool waters of New Zealand. They also have a marine life identification book they have put together with all species found on the Poor Knights. It’s a nice tool to have when you come up from a dive and want to figure out what you just saw. I can’t remember the skippers name but he was extremely knowledgeable about the islands, sites, and marine life. The site briefs gave us a good idea of what to expect and the divemaster did a good job of taking us to all the best spots. Since we were doing 3 dives that day, we had to stay on a tight schedule but the skipper did a fantastic job of providing with ample surface interval time while at the same time getting us in the water and all without making us feel pressured for time. By the end of our dives, we had been stunned by the marine life and very happy to have chosen Yukon Dives!
