So I decided to do my padi open water course in the Marlborough sounds and I must say it was incredible . From the very beginning just organising the trip was simple. I rang up and spoke to Brent ( the main man ) and he very kindly arranged for me to get a lift from kaikoura to Blenheim so... More

I spent 4 days doing a combined Openwater course and a trip to the Lermontov wreck. I would say I was a pretty nervous diver but Brent was a fantastic instructor - professional, friendly and patient - and I don't think I would have enjoyed diving so much if I had done the course elsewhere. Diving down to 18 meters... More

My son had his first open water dive after qualifying with PADI and Brent was great with him - he took a lot of time and care with him and made sure he had a great experience. Good value for money as well and a very friendly experience.

Did the overnight trip to the Go Dive lodge in Port Gore and then did two dives on the Lermentov. A great diving experience however with the travel times I would really try for three dives in the day rather than just two. Well worth the money and Brent looked after us with comfortable warm accomodation and good food.

This really was a fantastic dive trip where we got to experience the real New Zealand. Brent, who runs Go Dive was a great guy. The pick up from picton was stress free. Driving the 2.5 hr trip to port gore gave an opportunity to see the spectacular sounds. Lermontov lodge is ideal. Basic but equipped with everything we needed.... More

Did a four day diving trip on the Lermontov at the end of June with Go Dive. Brent was very good at communication before I arrived and managed to arrange the appropriate equipment for me beforehand. Once I arrived in Picton, Brent arranged to meet me and then help me find a campsite fairly late in the evening (I had... More

Had an amazing dive on the Lermontov a Russian cruise shiop that sank in 1986, what a buzz, great stay at the Lermontov lodge which meant only a 15 minute boat ride to what must be one of the best "unduscovered by the masses" wreck dive ever, will certainly come back there,

The opportunity to dive such a large commercial liner without numerous other people was amazing. One of the best kept diving secrets. The company were very helpful arranging for me to meet up even though I was only diving for a day. two good penetration dives. You could easily dive this 170 metre liner for a week Great food prepared... More

We joined Go Dive for three days of diving on the Lermontov and stayed at the Lermontov Lodge with them for the duration. They took care of absolutely everything for use from transport, to preparing our meals including fresh green lip muscles, and dealing with all things related to our diving. As a professional diver I get around to a... More
