We couldn’t possibly go on vacation and not go for a dive, thanks to Air New Zealand we didn’t have any of our gear. While my suitcase arrived the next day, Josh’s didn’t come for two more.
The site we picked was Poor Knights Island, one of the more famous dive sites in New Zealand. The collision of currents makes available a menagerie of wildlife not seen in other areas. For two people whom dive mostly in the tropics suiting up in 8mm wetsuits with hoods was a bit scary. I love to dive but I get cold even in Cozumel. There will be a video from our dive coming, I just have not done the editing yet. A bit lazy, but here is a little clip of Josh (and his beard) all suited up.
Wearing the GoPro was very comfortable and much easier than messing with my DSLR in a case. My favorite part of diving is watching the schooling fish do their thing and when you are in an area that is prime for migration its heaven. The dive was incredible and even though it was a large charter we were with a group of more experienced divers.
And, we weren’t cold.
