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

Thank you very much for this great time! Onu is the best dive instructor ever, very friendly and he takes care of all divers... He took us to different places and we have seen lots of turtles, stingrays, huge napoleon fishes etc. Thx!

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

My friend Olivia and I went diving with Onu last week and we had an amazing experience. I have my padi but Olivia doesn't so she was a little nervous but Onu made her feel so safe and at ease and taught her the basics so she could join me on a 17m deep dive off the coral reef. The... More

Onu and Menema's new holiday cottage on Amuri Beach is magical. Right on the beach with a wonderful swimming hole and glorious views and sunsets. Modern and very comfortable, it's lovely to have a private spot all to yourself and the birds and fish were amazing. You could do your own cooking or take a stroll along the beach to... More

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 have been with my boyfriend on Aitutaki island just recently and we have found Bubbles Below. We got nice recommendation from our accommodation. We were diving twice with Onu. Onu is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He is smiling always. He is basically from Aitutaki, he is running his bussiness 10 years and he really... More
