first evening we travel overnight 150km to the Cod Hole. During
this time passengers organize their dive gear or hire gear. We
also have a brief period of introduction followed by paperwork
and a briefing on the schedule for the next day. Dinner is served
at approx 7:30pm with the rest of the evening for relaxation.
The boat arrives at the Cod Hole at approx 9 am. Our second
dive at the Cod Hole is the Cod Feed, where huge schools of fish
and Maori Wrasses compete with the large family of Potato Cod
for a fish dinner. This would have to be one of the world's premier
dive experiences. After the second dive we move down the Ribbon
Reefs to one of our many select dive locations for an afternoon
dive and later a night dive.
