We visited the north at the
second weekend of February. Friends of use hired a nice house with a view
at Otaki Bay. On the way up we had a swim at Bream Bay. The next day we
went diving at Poor Nights Islands, 24 km off the Northland's east coast.
The place is reputed to have the best scuba diving in all New Zealand
and has been rated by many as one of the top diving spots in the world.
Even by Jacque Cousteau and his Calypso.
