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

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

If you want to dive in Aitutaki then Onu is the one to get ahold of for some great dives. The boat is manned and has all first aid equipment with life jackets on board. The dive sites we went to were awesome , first was a swim through to a drop off which was spectacular to see. And our... More
