Navy divers have recovered the second body from a light plane that crashed off the coast of Raglan last Saturday.
2degrees chief executive Eric Hertz, 58, and his wife Kathy Hertz, 64, died when their plane plunged into the sea about 20km off the coast from Raglan.
The first body was recovered on Saturday and the second on Sunday.
Police say the successful recovery of the two bodies comes with a mix of sadness and some satisfaction given the plane had settled on the ocean floor at a depth of 56 metres.
They say the body found on Sunday was still in the wreckage.
Both bodies will now be taken to Auckland for a post mortem on Monday.
At about 3pm on Sunday a significant part of the wreckage was also recovered and brought to the surface using divers and the crane from the HMNZS Manawanui.
Police say no decision has been made on whether an attempt will be made to recover the remaining wreckage.
In a written statement, the families said that knowing the couple can rest together in peace and that family members can say their farewells is a huge comfort.
They said the rescue teams have made a huge contribution and they look forward to one day being able to understand what happened to cause the crash.
