The Maori Lady dive site offers three unique diving experiences on the island. Each dive site has its own distinctive features, making it an ideal destination for divers of all levels. The island provides excellent shelter in most weather conditions, ensuring a safe and enjoyable diving experience.

The underwater landscape of Maori Lady consists of typical New Zealand reef formations, including sandy bottoms, coral reefs, and edges covered in seaweed. Each diving location on the island offers a slightly different environment, diversifying the range of experiences available.

Baffle Bay, one of the dive sites, begins on the back of a rocky reef with prominent reef fingers extending into deeper waters. As you descend, the rocky reef gradually transitions into a smooth kelp-covered edge, reaching a maximum depth of 22 meters. Maori Lady, located on the west side of the island, features a short reef with a vast sandy bottom that slopes further away from the island. This dive site is suitable for beginners, as it offers broken reef formations throughout the area. Lastly, Northern Edge presents a dense weedy sloping bottom, providing divers with ample opportunities to observe and explore.

With a visibility of 8 meters and a maximum depth of 14 meters, the Maori Lady dive site welcomes divers of various skill levels. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced diver, this aquatic adventure off the coast of Waikato, New Zealand ensures a remarkable experience.
