Dive the fiords

Your Company Name Here is pleased to sponsor this page. Visit our site

Diving in Fiordland is an amazing experience. It might not be the warmest water, but if you are appropriately dressed in a thick wet suit, and up for it, the rewards are fantastic. Jacques Cousteau put Fiordland in his top 10 list of places to dive. 

The fiords in Fiordland are considered to have the highest concentration of black coral trees in the world (they are actually white). Normally growing at depths of 100 metres or more, due to the large amount of rainfall draining into the fiords and the mountains blocking light from the water these beautiful giant corals have migrated to shallower depths perfect for viewing by divers along with red, white and numerous other soft corals. 

Descend Scubadiving offers diving trips in Milford Sound for beginners and experienced divers, and supplies all diving equipment. Trips depart from Te Anau or Milford Sound.

Fiordland Expeditions have guided dive charters in Doubtful Sound.
