Scuba Diving

Dive the wreck of the Rainbow Warrior and surrounding reefs at the Cavalli Islands. The Cavalli Islands azure waters have some of the best visibility in New Zealand. They are also the final resting-place of the famous 'Rainbow Warrior' Greenpeace's flagship. Sunk in 1989 to provide a reef and internationally recognised dive site, she lies in 75ft / 22 metres of water. Only 30 minutes by boat from Huntaway Lodge. Other recreational dives are also available and can be tailored to your diving experience.

Pick up and return from the beach. All dive equipment supplied.

Big Game Fishing

Huntaway Lodge lies in the middle of the Marlin Coast and New Zealand's Big Game fishing grounds. Fishing the coast or around the scenic Cavalli islands (30 minutes by boat from Huntaway Lodge) yields a multitude of fish species.

Striped Marlin, Blue Marlin and the very rare black Marlin follow the warm ocean currents in close to the coast during the summer months. The season runs from December to May. Kingfish, Snapper, Trevally, Tarakihi, John Dory and sea trout (kahawai) provide sport all year round.

Your time can be maximised by being picked up directly by the game boat from the beach after an early breakfast and dropped back at the end of the day with your catch.
