Taharoa Domain (Kai Iwi Lakes)

The dive site located at the Eastern end of Taharoa Lake in New Zealand offers a remarkable underwater experience. Upon entering, divers will encounter a shallow entrance of 0.5m before rapidly descending to a depth of 10m. The site continues to slope downwards, reaching depths of 30m or more. The bottom composition consists initially of fine white sand transitioning to a siltier texture at greater depths.

Explore the diverse marine life of Taharoa Lake, including koura (freshwater crayfish), brown trout, rainbow trout, and perch. The absence of a standard weed line provides an open and vibrant underwater environment for divers to explore. With an impressive visibility of 10m and a maximum depth of 15m, this dive site is suitable for divers of both beginner and advanced levels.

Located at Domain Road, Kaipara District, Northland, New Zealand, this popular dive site does require caution due to high boat traffic. It is a favored destination for boats, water skiing, and sea biscuiting enthusiasts. Remain vigilant and aware of your surroundings for a safe and enjoyable diving experience at Taharoa Lake.
