We booked a dive with the company in november 2015. The weather was pretty bad on D-day, but they took us out on the trip anyway. The ocean was very choppy and the boat ride an hour long. My entire family got very sick and we could not do any of the activities all day. The people were courteous and... More

It's always interesting being a tourist in your own country - and always great when it's a top experience! The Dive Tutukaka team run a really good operation - efficient, friendly, safe, knowledgeable. The waters are pristine, we saw lots of fish, the gear is good, and we learned a lot about the history and geography of the area. Well... More

We dived Poor Knights with Dive Tutukaka on ElTigre. Staff were friendly, professional and really helpful. They went out of their way to make it an easy and pleasurable experience, even setting up our gear for us, and taking the gear from us as we stood on the stern ladder. No fuss, easy diving. We hired all gear and it... More

Took a day trip out to Poor Knights Island for two dives. The boat ride out was fantastic, crew told stories of the history on the way and the diving was amazing. The crew took great care of us, great boat, great dive equipment. Hope to come back one day, thank you so much.

Having read a number of reviews it seems as though our experience was an exception. However, it's often how a company responds to stuff when it goes a little awry when you get a true picture of its approach. There were five of us in total, so probably our most expensive day out on our holiday in NZ. Diving was... More
