My new wife and I traveled to Aitutaki for our honeymoon. We decided to go for a dive and it was the one the best things we did on our holiday. I have been diving in numerous locations around the world but nothing compared to this. Onu and Menema were so friendly and professional. All the equipment is perfectly maintained... More

My boyfriend and I did a 2-tank dive with Bubbles and it was a great experience from the beginning to the end. I don't have that much diving experience and this was my first boat dive, so I was a little apprehensive at first, but Onu made me feel very secure and helped me get over my fears (looking at...

My partner had an awesome time out with Onu and was well looked after. Afterwards he recommended bubbles below to another guest at our resort who came back with the same feedback about how great it was. No complaints, definitely worth getting in touch if you're in Aitutaki.

Swam with humpback whales today out in the deep blue pacific ocean... Watched them breach and dive from the boat before getting our snorkelling gear on and observing them dive into the depths below. Floating on the surface with 4000m of ocean below you is one daunting but invigorating experience! Topped the trip off swimming with turtles, eagle rays and... More

The staff was extremely friendly. they took us on two dives, one where we saw white tip reef sharks, turtles, lots of fish that we fed a coconut to, and a school of ~30 eagle rays. In between dives we got hot milo which was wonderful. The second dive we did... More

They had excellent gear, knew the area really well and we saw Giant Turtles, Eagle Rays, shark and so many kinds and sizes and colours of fish in really clear water. I did 2 dives and it was a mind blowing experience. I... More

Quite good equipment and nice staff. They really know where to go, so we could see lot of fish, including turtles, sharks, manta and eagle rays, and just outside the barrier, five minutes from the coast. Diving in Aitutaki is a must

Thanks to the staff for our best discovery scuba dive experience yet! Our third discovery dive and had fun! Fantastic friendly staff, massive fish, schools of manta rays and saw three turtles (able to pat one of them on the shell when napping on coral)! Had a fantastic time! Highly recommend this to everyone!

Aitutaki is a pretty good spot for your first dive and we've seen some amazing marine life on the outer reef - tropical fish, giant sea turtles (so relaxed, I even tried to ride one before Onu told me off), Napoleon big fish (eats coconut as well). Onu did a really good job at guiding my partner Nataliya, who never... More
