Canterbury was decommissioned at the end of March 2005 and after extensive works to remove potentially toxic materials, she was scuttled on 3 November 2007 at Deep Water Cove in the Bay of Islands to provide a dive wreck.

The ex-HMNZS Canterbury was prepared with divers in mind; plenty of extra access points have been created to provide an ease of entry and exit, this makes for some particularly good penetration and swim through opportunities.

The wreck sits completely upright and fully intact, and her position in Deep Water Cove is protected in most conditions. She lies at a depth of between 12 metres at the middle funnel, and 38 metres at the stern, where visibility can range between 8 and 30 metres.
The upper deck, bridge and first floor levels are easily within recreational diving range.The lower levels are for more advanced divers with the stern resting at approximately 36m. Fish are already making them selves at home aboard the Canterbury, with resident schools in the bridge and around the funnel.

The Canterbury lies in water deeper than 18m/60ft. Any Open Water divers who wish to dive the wrecks must do so in conjunction with a Deep Dive Specialty (which will contribute to their Advanced Open Water certification). Pease contact us for pricing and any other wreck diving certifications you may like to take. You must be a certified diver to dive the wreck.
