    So, I will be going to New Zealand by cruise ship. One day stops at Dunedin(dec.27), Akaroa(dec.28), Wellington(dec.29) and Picton(dec.30). What are my chances of hooking up with a charter or dive shop for a charter or some good shore diving? I have not had any response from emailing dive shops in Wellington. Anything that is a "can't miss"???. I am qualified for about anything, but don't want to take a lot of equipment,so will have to rent the heavy stuff.

    Thanks, Jeff

    Dive HQ in Wellington has a couple of boat dives scheduled on Dec 29. Debating going myself. Not sure if your schedule would allow for that though?

    Poor Knights and Milford Sounds are on my bucket list, whilst in South Island go to Queenstown such a great place for
    Adrenalin junkies so much to do there

    I have emailed them. Have not heard back. Supposed to be docked 8am to 6pm, not sure if I could get there in time to make the boat as their schedule says leaves at 8.

    Nope. Can't make the schedule. Going with a different group to the F69. Clair seemed nice at Dive HQ, sorry I won't meet her.

    Enjoy the F69 - I hope you get good weather. The Wellington south coast 'on a good day' is spectacular.. in bad weather it's completely undiveable!
    I was going to add, Akaroa diving = poor vis... better things to see above the water! (I guess the Hector's Dolphins are not 'above water', but are a 'non-diving' activity.
