This is the best diving expereicne ever. Poor knight is a great diving spot with many different fishes. It is also very interesting to do the cliff diving which is a new and amazing experience for me. More importantly, the guide and the captain are interesting and knowledgable. They do briefing before and after the dives, which made the experience... More

Did two great days of diving with dive tutukaka. Spent the first day on the calypso, which is a bigger boat with a lot of divers. Dive deck got a little hectic with so many divers, but not too bad. Second day was spent on el tigre, which was a smaller boat with less divers and went to some more... More

The Tutukaka Coast was voted by National Geographic as number 2 in the world and Dive Tutukaka was voted number 10 of the best dive locations in the world, pretty good for a... More

A well-run, professional but fun diving operation. I have dived all over the world but this place ranks as one of the top dive operators I have dived with. The staff are fun and friendly and from the outset are there to make your day a memorable and fun-filled experience. My 2 children (6&9) were welcomed on board the dive... More

The whole operation is professional and enjoyable from start to finish. A great experience for less capable swimmers with plenty of help, wet suits a must for flotation and warmth and a good array of fish. The children were very well looked after by a wonderful staff team who really made the trip. the drive into the large cave, the... More

We went as a couple; one first timer and I hadn't been diving for 10 years or so. The staff were very friendly and helpful and put us at ease immediately. They matched us up with suitable guides for our experience level and off we went. Very slick and well oiled operation with very enthusiastic and passionate staff. Scenery and... More
