The Mikhail Lermontov

The ultimate way to dive one of the biggest and best wrecks in the world. Scheduled trips and charters run all year round.

Based at the very cosy and secluded Lermontov Lodge in Port Gore, only 5 minutes by boat to the Mikhail Lermontov, you will have unlimited access to this world class wreck dive and the untouched reefs of Port Gore.

Your adventure starts in Picton with a very scenic road trip winding your way though the native rain forest of the Queen Charlotte and Keneperu Sounds, ending up at Go Dives private Lodge at the very tip of New Zealand’s South island. On arrival you dine on a home cooked meal and prepare for the following days diving on the Lermontov by viewing a video and immersing yourself in our Lermontov Library and museum. In the morning our staff who have immense experience diving on the Lermontov, will fit you out with top of the line dive equipment as required and guide you safely at a ratio no more than 4 to 1 in and around the vastness of the ship. Areas visited will vary depending on your level of experience, assuring you safe and exhilarating dives like non other you will encounter.
