A wonderful way to spend our last morning on the island. Generally, a 1-2 hour round trip, the reef sub leaves from the Harbour and makes lots of interesting and informative stops along the way. From feeding the Giant Trevally's up close, cruising over a...More

Kia Orana. The trip is between one and a quarter hours and one and a half hours. Sometimes slightly longer if we are with whales.
