We did a day of diving and was very impressed with how organised everything was and staff were very friendly and informative!

The diving was excellent. Professional staff, boat and diving equipment in really good condition. Everyone (in the shop and in the boat) are fun, nice, kind and informed. If you think about diving in New Zealand I would highly recommend Dive tutukaka.

Based on very favorable conditions two of us (both Kiwis) booked with Dive Tutukaka on very short notice. We had a blast, and enjoyed every minute of the jewel that is the Poor Knights Islands reserve. DIVING AND LOCATION: we both dived and snorkeled, the water is often so clear and the sea life is so abundant you don't really... More

We had the most fabulous experience with this dive outfit, even though we were snorkeling, and the day was full of ROUGH ROUGH seas. Our family of four got to snorkel in and around some incredible sea caves, with innumerable amounts of water rushing in and out, the sound of the water engulfing us. It was truly a surreal experience... More

We showed up on the morning of Christmas Eve, and the place was jumping! I believe they had four boats going out that day, with everyone from snorkelers to people getting their open water certification to seasoned divers. The diving was great -- gigantic sting rays! -- but what really stands out is the way this shop took care of... More

My partner and I chose to dive with these guys as we had already heard great things. Once we arrived the entire team were really friendly, and to top it off we had amazing weather. We did 2 dives out in the poor nights, which included seeing 3 different species of stingray! The crew were helpful and gave a great... More

Two superb days of diving. Poor Knights is obviously an awesome site, and the dive masters knew the spots really well, to give us the best experience (Uriel in particular was a superb guide). Highly professional crew, lovely comfortable boats, well maintained and good quality equipment. The model of a good dive company.

I have dived in many parts of the world and this has got to be the best run dive operation. Processing when I first arrived was efficient, friendly and reassuring even though it was busy with three boats going out (Christmas Eve). The gear and boats are in good condition and the briefing very professional. The staff were genuinely caring... More
