Day 7: Paihia to Warkworth

After another early start we had a slightly longer boat ride this morning (just over an hour) out to the wreck of the Rainbow Warrior, a Green Peace vessel sunk in 1985. Having been underwater longer than the Canterbury, the Rainbow Warrior is covered with various plant life. Kate did her first dive of the day in Seal Bay, and once again saw plenty of seals.

The afternoon dive was in Lion Bay. Kate had now completed all of her skills training, so we were able to dive together as a group. This was a really good dive with plenty of fish and some eels. Having completed the required training, Kate is now a certified PADI Open Water diver!

Soon after returning to the shore we were on the road again, heading South East towards Cathedral Cove. We decided to stop for the night at the same campsite as our first night, in Warkworth.
