Blue Maomao arch is one of the iconic sites in the Poor Knights, New Zealand.

It is common that you find thousands of them just hanging in the arch, which has a maximum depth of 5 meters, and it is open in the surface.

It is a completely extraordinary experience to slowly swim through the arch, with them checking on you and observing their behaviour.
