Nine took us out for a snorkel in the Marlborough Sounds and to see the seals, all kitted up in dive suits. He was extremely knowledgeable and is very involved with emergency services in the area and we felt 100% safe the whole time. His gear was excellent, as was the hot coffee and milo following our plunge. Wonderful, thank you :) Our kids are 10 and 13 and it was perfect for them.

Our trip was a while back Sep 2011 ( not 2012 - could only go thast far back on the date selection) and just realised we didn't review. Nine and his wife were brilliant,(his wife made my new wife a birthday cake which was yum). We went out on the seal swimming trip which although the seals did not want to play, was fantastic. We swam in the sound with the amazing fish, saw penguins, dolphins and of course seals. Was only the 2 of us and Nine on the boat so very enjoyable. Were out on the boat for ages and enjoyed every minute.

We had two incredible dives together with Nine Dives. Nine is a very friendly and interestingly talkative person. He has excellent equipment. We went out on the water and did a nice tour in the sounds with his boat in search for a sea lions. Success guaranteed. The first dive was in a fish reserve – an amazing experience with all those fishes close by. We even saw a little shark! The second dive was on a wreck, a nice spot as well! In between the two dives we went to have some beverages and fries with beautiful scenery on the sounds.

This weekend I had 2 fantastic dives with Nine Dives, Picton. We stayed with Nine in the Family B&B which was excellent. Unbelievable scenery, great walks all around and superb breakfasts! The diving was great, the equipment that was supplied by Nine was all top quality, well looked after gear. The boat was well kitted out....... Just everything gets 10 out of 10. We saw another dive charter company from Picton whilst we were out and that confirmed we had definatly made the right choice!! Can't wait to get back there!!!!!

Good Day Mate, Wanted to let you know that I had an excellent time with Nine dives. Both he and his co captain friend made me feel right at home. The set up is may put you off at the beginning as it is not as professional as some place but the warm feeling, security and expertise are displayed. I had a most excellent experience and would certainly go again. They were especially accommodating to my friend who was not sure if she wanted to go scuba diving. In the end she just went snorkeling and had a great time. We enjoyed tea and coffee in between dives with them. Both Nine and the Captain were interesting and knowledgeable. They both come from medical backgrounds and have a lot of experience. While diving I saw amazing fish life. The water in Picton was very clear, warm and with out strong currents. This condition made it perfect for someone newish to scuba diving. You will certainly enjoy!!
