Inner Harbour / Wharf


Produced by the Otago University Dive Club


Access: Good road access

Weather / Sea conditions: Good in all conditions

Visibility: Poor to very poor, between 0 - 3 metres

Description: You never know what you will find under the wharves in the harbour, but this is usually not very exciting. If you are hard up for a place to dive, you might want to give it a go. If you are diving in the wharf area, you are advised to check with the Tairoa Head lighthouse so that you know if there is any shipping expected in the area, and so local craft like the Monarch can be advised of your presence.

Depth: Around 12-14 metres in the main shipping channel
