The Poor Knights Islands

Gannet colonies nest on the outer islands, the PInnacles, we take you up close and personal.
Southern Arch is the largest arch in the Southern Hemisphere, we take you right through!

A total Marine Reserve and Nature Reserve - and pending World Heritage Site - the 11 million year old Islands’ volcanic origins provide myriad spectacular drop offs, walls, caves, arches and tunnels.

Above and below water, the Islands are abundantly populated with unique and incredibly varied plant, animal and fish life.

Laying claim to an astounding Maori history and the world’s largest sea cave (and only living dinosaur and largest insect) the remarkable Poor Knights thoroughly deserve their protected status.
