They also suggested places to go diving, not just in Wellington but in other parts of NZ too. Wasn't too happy about the bcd or fins I got but I am tiny and no dive shop ever has... More

Dave, Paula, Chris, and Kelly are so accommodating - they provided good advice on scuba gear, top diving tips, and guided tours around the Marine Reserve. We went out in front of the dive shop into Mermaid's Kitchen - it was so beautiful! Lots of lovely swim-throughs, cracks infested with crayfish, gangs of blue moki, and schools of cheeky blue...

I was teamed up with Chris who explained everything we were going to do. That made an immediate impact and calmed my nerves. He is absolutely the best. Secondly, everything I needed... More

I have been diving with these guys for a while now, and never have a bad experience. I chose them after checking into many of the local dive shops, and none were as friendly, or knowledgable as these guys. Their equipment is well taken care of, and the staff will go out of their way to help you out, or... More
