If you want to dive with a awesome friendly crew, a very professional, safety focused operation and see the mind blowing underwater world that Raro has to offer then go see Dive Rarotonga. The best hundred bucks I’ve spent in a very, very long time!!!

Hmmm... interesting review, especially seeing as we don't have a dive site called 'Smurfs' and never have had (but a competitor does!)
