The Poor Knights Islands are one of 18 Marine Reserves in New Zealand.
They were named by Jacques Cousteau as one of the top 10 dive sites in the world. Landing on the island is only allowed with a permit from the Department of Conservation.
Separated from mainland New Zealand, the Poor Knights Islands are influenced by a warm current that originates in the Coral Sea, north of Australia. Water temperature is higher, and visibility significantly greater than in nearby coastal waters.
Flora and fauna
Tropical and subtropical life forms have become established among the diverse and multiple environments formed by the island's volcanic origins.
The Poor Knights Islands can be reached from Tutukaka Harbour, 30 kilometres north of Whangarei. A number of charter boats operate from Tutukaka.
