THE TWINS

The twins is a dive site 15mins away from whitianga located between whiti and devils point. A bit of experience is need for this dive and a run of decent weather. The north and south side are the deepest parts of the dive with a swim through at about 10m down right in the middle of the twins.

Good water movement a lot of spotted demoiselles, kahawai and target fish species all year round. water conditions are no good when the rain is in.
