Experience the dramatic scenery and diving of the Hen and Chicken Islands on this full-day dive charter from Warkworth.

The Islands are common breeding grounds for schools of blue mao mao, sweep, trevally and silver drummer In the summer months, you will occasionally come across Kingfish as you descend these dramatic walls which drop down to boulders and gradually level out exposing cracks where you can find hidden crayfish and large yellow moray eels. There are also large kelp covered boulders that provide refuge for goatfish, red moki and demoiselles.

Book a charter to see the Hen and Chicks for yourself. New Zealand Diving offers a one day charter with 2 dives.
