    There's currently 2 dive shops in Paihia and one from Tutukaka, see them both at:
    www.bayofislands.net/info/activities/diving

    I would recommend going from Tutukaka to the Poor Knights Islands (Tutukaka is close to Whanagrei which is about 40 minutes from Paihia). The Poor Knights were rated by the big man Jacques Cousteau as being in the top 5 cool-water diving spots...
