Dive the Poor Knights Island, New Zealand's world famous marine reserve with Noel and Jo on "Arrow".

Enjoy the diving with a small group with personalised service and local advice. Do not experience the crowding that occurs on some charter vessels.


Dive New Zealand's two famous ship wrecks. The Waikato and Tui are superb dive wrecks and are just outside the Tutukaka Harbour entrance. These wrecks are excellent day and night dives with secure mooring lines for access from dive boat to the wrecks.


Within minutes we can drop you in for a spectacular night dive on the beautiful Tutukaka Coast.  Whether it is for underwater photography or a lobster dive we will take you to the spot.

Passion for diving

Noel and Jo - Diving the Poor Knights Marine Reserve
Our Mission Statement
To share our passion for the underwater world of the Poor Knights, with a focus on friendship, a spirit of adventure and a commitment to safety, the environment and our community.




The Yukon Dive Team understand the passion and enthusiasm divers have. We are very lucky to have the Poor Knights on our doorstep, as the waters surrounding the Poor Knights are irresistible.

We believe that customer satisfaction begins with recognizing that each individual is special and unique. It is important that our clients realize that to us, they have a name, not a number.

We have been a couple for many years and complement each other by utilizing our individual strengths in our shared roles within the company.

We also know that quality and safety go hand in hand and this is a never ending journey of continuous improvement for us all.


As Noel and I are often on the boat together or away from our office all day, it may take us a little longer to respond to your emails than expected. Please allow 24 hours for a response and if you need to contact us urgently please do not hesitate to call, we would be happy to take some details and give you a call back.

Thank you for your patience.

Noel and Jo

If you are looking for a dive shop - stop looking!  We can be found at the boat after a days diving and you are welcome to come down to see us, check the boat out etc.  Or, please don't hesitate to give Jo a call, we'd love to hear from you.
