Really friendly and professional company make diving the Poor Knights a great experience. Very comfortable boats, and knowledgeable dive guides and crew. I enjoyed the flexibility the dive guides allow you catering for your level of experience. And the Poor Knights is an amazing experience underwater.

Just a lovely lovely day out on the boat. When it wasn't our turn to dive we could snorkel around and explore the area. Beautiful... More

As the biggest and virtually sole dive operator in tutukaka it would be easy to drop the ball and get lazy - especially with such reliable diving at hand. However dive tute aren't at all like that. Everything is professional, friendly, safe and fun. The skippers, DMs, and crews are extremely knowledgable regarding the local area and history, and local... More

Our dive at the Poor Knights' Islands was our first time in (almost) cold-water diving (15 degrees Celsius) and we were quite concerned about what to expect and how this might complicate our dive, but the staff at Dive Tutukaka were very reliable and we felt very safe and taken care of during the trip. The dive masters were also... More

First of all, I have to say that the email response for this company was always whip-fast and so informative. I could tell they weren't just trying to sell me a spot on their boat but actually wanted me and my family to have a great time. Due to the age of my children, I needed a guide for just... More

Scuba diving at the poor knights - two of the best dives of my life. Diving trough a natural cave, experiencing rich fish life, amazing visibility. The crew of the boat was awesome, especially captain Jack (Sparrow)
