They said we would see sharks, turtles, eagle rays, morey eels and more .... and we did. There were plenty of fish and the diving was great. I only wish I was there longer to have gotten in a few more dives.

The diving with "Bubble below" off Aititaki, Cook Island last week was great. The transportation by car and boat and preparation of the equipment was very efficient and smooth, and our diving master Unu found what we had hoped to see; sharks, several giant turtles, Napoleon fish, moray eel, a great number of different reef fishes and corals, and, maybe...

We heard whales singing underwater just after entry and the whale song was getting louder and louder and the water was vibrating. I was so thrilled as I knew they were so close to us! Sure, we saw them at drop off ... wow, finaly I met them. Amazing experience. Professional service and well maintained equipments. Strongly recommend Onu and... More

This was the second time I have been to Aitutaki and dived with Onu and his wife. He is extremely humble and makes sure you are catered for. He is passionate about Marine conservation and very knowledgeable regarding the local marine environment. Well worth the money to go and dive with Onu!

We did our PADI openwater dive course with Onu from Bubbles Below, and you couldn't find a nicer, more relaxed and supportive teacher! Practising the skills underwater took on a whole new dimension with a giant napoleon wrasse swimming around our heads, having already seen whales, turtles, rays and a moray eel. Highly reccomend diving with Onu on aitutaki! Had... More

We reluctantly booked our dive on the last day as the weather and water conditions were not perfect - all the greater our surprise that it turned out to be a MUST dive, we were really thrilled! We were a bit disappointed before in Fiji and Samoa but here totally the opposite, it turned out to be an easy dive... More

I enjoyed one diving served by Bubbles Below. At first I was a little surprised when arrived at the place, because in my experiences most shops are located at beach shores. The shop is in a hill and a boat is pulled to a shore by a tractor. Briefing is simple and clear: signals of morays, turtles, reef-sharks, napoleon-fish, eagle... More

I had booked this the afternoon before and it was no problem to fit me in. I have not dived since I passed my PADI nearly two years ago....but Onu wasn't at all worried. We did both dives just outside the main reef in the same area. We saw turtles and eagle rays. Onu was great at explaining everything before... More
