Hi Bill, Carol--looks like you're having a wonderful time! Please inquire about diving--I may want to go there in the next couple of years! Bill--I met a very nice man from New Zealand on the bus the other day. If he's any indication of their kind, you're in friendly territory. Cheers--see you when you return. -Kim :-)

Kim's comment re Diving Trips
As a local I would recommend a quick trip out to the Poor Knights Islands for diving. The islands themselves are a predator free sanctuary for native fauna and off limits but the sea caves and underwater arches surrounding them are teeming with protected sealife and the diving in this area is spectacular. Get there from Tutukaka Marina half an hour coastwards from Whangarei.
