    Specialty Courses

    PADI Project AWARE Specialty course – Free!

    Join us for a FREE PADI Project AWARE Specialty evening on the 12th of October.  All divers and curious Non-divers are welcome with an optional certification counting towards a PADI Master Scuba Diver rating for just $55.  Normally $135! There are no prerequisites, all divers and non divers can attend.

    Project AWARE were originally formed in 1989 as an environmental initiative by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI). Project AWARE existed to increase environmental awareness through diver education. In 1992, with tremendous support from the dive community, Project AWARE Foundation was registered as an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in the U.S. To engage divers and activists around  the world in conservation, Project AWARE became an established UK charity in 1999 and received formal nonprofit status in Australia in 2002.

    At NZ Sea Adventures we have been including the PADI Project AWARE Specialty course in our diver development programmes and as advocates for the health of our much enjoyed underwater world.  We encourage those interested in the sport of scuba diving to attend and experience our hospitality and programmes, to meet the team and some of the Crew who also share the same passion for the ocean environment.

    No commitment is required or fee’s compulsory, just a nice way to learn about what’s happening locally and globally plus things we can all do to protect and preserve this valuable resource we call our ocean.

    Project AWARE membership is also free, you can register here then participate in events in your local area and anywhere in the world.

    Dive Trips

    Mikhail Lermontov Trip

    • Early 2018

    On February 16th 1986, the Mikhail Lermontov was cruising in New Zealand for the CTC cruise company.  On that day she left Picton for the Marlborough Sounds, carrying mostly elderly Australian passengers, under the charge of the Picton pilot Captian Don Jamison.  His presence and his knowledge of the area, should, have assured the safety of MS Mikhail Lermontov.Mikhail Lermontov Dive Trip Wellington Scuba Shop dive gear diving equipment Wellington PADIi dive courses Wellington TDI courses KISS Rebreathers

    Captain Jamieson proceeded towards Cape Jackson, hugging the shoreline to gie the Australian passengers a good view of the area.  About one mile from the cape, Jamieson made the decision to take MS Mikhail Lermontov through the passage.  A Russian officer tried to discourage Jamieson, but the harbour master assured him it would be fine.

    At 5:37pm, traveling at 15 knots, Mikhail Lermontov struck rocks about 5.5m below the waterline on her port side.  Water poured up into the decks and the seriously damaged ship limped towards Port Gore.  Jamieson hoped he could beach the ship to stop it floating to sea.  Jamieson beached Mikhail Lermontov successfully, but lowering the anchors to keep her there was impossible as the electricity in the ship had failed.  As a result, the ship drifted into deeper waters.  Water-tight doors were broken open by the pressure of the sea water gushing into the ship.  Mikhail Lermontov was doomed.

    MS Mikhail Lermontov rests where she sank, lying on her starboard side.  One of the biggest dive-able ship wrecks in the world and one of the best.  The dives can be as challenging as you want to make them, ranging from easy 12m to 18m dives around the wreck, to decompression dives to depths of 36m.  It is possible to swim inside the ship with the correct training.  Penetration while remaining in sight of the light requires a Wreck Specialty course and anything further inside requires Advanced Wreck training.

    • Minimum certification: Advanced Open Water

      Recommended: Wreck, Deep
