Our diving trip with Bubbles Below was highly enjoyable. The equipment was modern and well maintained. Safety focused. Staff very friendly and nice.  The dive was very good. Good visability. Got to see heaps of colorfull fish, a shark, rayfish, Napoleon fish, but the highlight was the giant sea turtles.

I hope I got the spelling right, but Onu (meaning Turtle) and his father took a few of us out for a dive outside the reef on Aitutaki. (Again, I don't have the option to say that this trip happened a few years ago)... The boat was large enough that I didn't get sick (I was/am a new diver) and... More

My partner and I just recently visited Aitutaki. Being water babies and having done as much snorkeling as possible we wanted to do something different! I had only dived once many years ago and my partner not at all. We discovered bubbles below during an internet search and contracted them. Onu was happy to accept us as first time divers... More

Went for a dive with Bubbles Below. Spectacular choice of dive site, and we saw 2 turtles and tons of eagle rays as well as plenty of other fish. The quality of instruction was fantastic for a beginner like me, and my friends and I had the time of our lives on this dive. Would highly recommend and Bubbles below... More

Uncle bubbles is an excellent guy who took us to two awesome dive locations. We saw some unbelievalbe stuff including massive green turtles on two dives of 45 minutes each. However, if you don't have your PADI then you will only dive once AND you will be charged the same price as those that dive twice which to me was... More

With a well maintained, COVERED boat, brand new Mares rental equipment, small dive group, Uno ensures your safety and overall enjoyment come first. Dives are a short distance outside the outer reef, the boat is manned while you're in the water, fresh... More
