New Zealand: Poor Knights Islands, World’s Best Sub-Tropical Diving

Many of New Zealand’s prime diving spots are just offshore, offering easy access. One of the best spots is the crystal-clear waters of the Poor Knights Islands Marine Reserve, whose amazing range of fish, including many tropical species, was considered by the late Jacques Cousteau, the most famous undersea explorer of the 20th century, to be one of the world’s top ten diving locations.

23 kilometers (~14.3 miles) off New Zealand’s Tutukaka Coast, the Poor Knights Islands are an international icon. They've been around for over 11 millions years. They're a total Marine and Nature Reserve that offer volcanic origins such as myriad spectacular drop offs, walls, caves, arches and tunnels.
