Hi, my name is Herbert. I do love my diving, especially around the beautiful Poor Knights Marine Reserve here on the Tutukaka Coast. Recreational diver, to PADI Divemaster and onto Poor Knights Skipper!
Mountains to Sea
Migrating from Switzerland in 2004 to New Zealand I discovered my love for the sea.
Recreational to Professional Poor Knights Skipper
It all started as a recreational diver going out on Yukon’s dive boat “Arrow”. Over time it became so frequent I started guiding other customers around the special dive sites the Marine Reserve has so many of.
Doing this for probably about 10 years I decided maybe I could also drive the boat. So in 2018 I got my skipper’s ticket and here we are, first season under the belt.
Unfortunately the season was a bit shortened by a chap called “Corona”, but I am looking so forward to very soon being out on the water again as skipper or diver.
I hope to welcome many customers, old and new ones, as passengers when I am driving the boat as your Poor Knights Skipper or in the water as dive buddies soon.
