Diving New Zealand's Milford Sound / Piopiotahi marine reserve is an experience that can not be found any where else on Earth.
Unique to Milford’s underwater world are sheer cliff faces that provide spectacular Fiord wall diving and a totally unique eco system of deep-water emergent black coral trees. The coral trees have a stunning white appearance over a jet-black skeleton and are normally only found in deep water trenches. Thanks to Milford's heavy rainfall making for a mix of fresh and salt water on the surface and huge mountains casting their shadows over the waters, enough light is blocked to allow these beautiful coral trees to call Milford home.
While diving you may also see Sharks, Eels, Octopus, Stingray, Crayfish, Nudibranch and over 150 different fish species.
The diversity of marine life, extreme mountain faces, majestic scenery and powerful presence lead Jacques Cousteau to rate Fiordland diving as "The last frontier" of underwater exploration.
