Loads of awesome fish life, epic examples of colour and life in our Poor Knights Islands Marine Reserve and if you look close, you will see a clown nudibranch on the sponge covered and encrusted rocks. 🤩😍 📸Darren Spratt #PoorKnightsIslands#DiveTutukaka#tutukakacoast#nzscuba#divelife#myPADI#ouroffice#marinereserves#plasticfree

Amazing drone shot of our boat Calypso, in Calypso Bay, both are named after Jacques Cousteau's original research boat Calypso. She anchored here in December 1986, and Jacques famously declared the Poor Knights as in one of the top ten dive sites in the world.

Winter Solstice - the shortest day in the year - heading back to SUMMER!! Seal colony is in residence, and the #PoorKnights are magnificent. Wicked winter diving - clear clear water, with crystal visibility, and fish life everywhere. #MarineReserves#divetutukaka#scubalife#nzdiving#divingnz#goodmorningworldnz Photo Credit to @simone_matucci

Diadema urchin - the closer you look the more you see - 📸Credit to the awesome @Simone_Matucci#SearchingforUrchin#itsaThing What looks like an eye, is not always so.....nature is pretty cool, and there is so much about the underwater world we are still discovering. #MakeaDifference#SeaShepherdDive Be a good ancestor. Think about a behaviour change - stop eating fish......and the impact that would have on our Oceans. Just think about it..... #poorknights#divingnz#marinereserves#myPADI#AForceForGood#scuba#tutukakacoast@paditv@tutukakacoast@poorknights

This little green turtle cruises by at the #PoorKnights No one really knows much about their movements in the teen years and habits, but the EAC probably bought this dude down for a visit. Lucky the #marinereserve is protected and we can get a glimpse into the amazing underwater world. 📸@Lorna_dugong and @emr_nz 🐢🐢 #divetutukaka#poorknights#myPADI#tutukakacoastsouthpacific#tutukakacoast@purenewzealand#tiakipromise#scubalife#marinereserves

Mosaic moray, Enchelycore ramosa, takes a pretty ugly mug shot. But actually is kinda cute, lives in cuddly crevices in the #PoorKnights, gets to a striking two metres in length, and is unable to close its mouth. Just think about that for a second.......

A gentle cloud of blue maomao seemingly lift @magentaoceans out of the water in Middle Arch, at the Poor Knights Islands Marine Reserve. Photo taken by the talented @rachstewartnz A marine reserve since 1998, and an incredible place to visit, it is truly a taonga on our Northland Coastline, and deserves its status as iconic. #PoorKnights#divetutukaka#tutukakasouthpacific#myPADI#divelife#NZMustdo#marinereserves#nzdiving#rachstewartnz#tutukaka#tutukakacoast#perfectdayoceancruise#perfectdaypoorknights@perfectdaycruise

The orca came to play again yesterday! The matriach Diane was caught in fishing line, @orcaingrid untangled her a decade ago, and this is her hanging out with her daughter, granddaughter and a young male. Family bonds are strong with orca! #orca#freemorgan#wildandfree#emptythetanks@hunter.malcon photo cred and @orcaingrid for whale whispering.
