If your friend or family member does not dive but is "in tow" then there is plenty for them to do while you're under water having fun.

The Lodge is situated near surf beaches, horse riding and dirt-biking activities, and is within an hour to an hour and a half journey from Russell, Whangarei, Paihia or Kerikeri.

Closer to the lodge are walkways: Cape Brett Walkway, Whangamumu Walk and Twin Kauris Walk. Helena Bay Hill Gallery & Cafe, 20 mins drive, has great artwork.

Endangered and Native Birds inhabit the bush and lake area within Northland Dive property, while at near-by Bland Bay a variety of costal birds can be observed.
