All the people who work at Pacific Divers are really great. The diving is great too. I've dived with them three times in four years, the last time I did 26 dives in two weeks. It was always a really easy and enjoyable experience. I'll be back as often as I can afford it!

My 15 year old daughter went diving with Connor and his crew and had an amazing time! She loved the sharks and whales the most. She can't wait to come back to Rarotonga and go diving with them again.

Our family of four went diving with Pacific Divers (Connor - Divemaster) on one day of our stay and then followed up with another dive with just two of us a couple of days later. Firstly I have dived a lot of places and I thought these guys were friendly and professional. I appreciated that they soon worked out that... More

Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad you appreciate the way we lead dives, focusing on safety and enjoyment, while giving divers the chance to explore the reef without constantly being reminded to stay on top of the divemaster. I note your comment about site selection, and when you come back and dive with us let us know the sites you... More

I think I was a bit unlucky. The crew had just been replaced and were new to the company so didn't know the sites. Organization fell a bit short and it was a clear case of many hands not making light work, just confusion. There was more trainees than customers on the boat. And the boat guy fell asleep, which...

Took a 2 dive trip. As I own and have been running multi-day dive trips in NZ for 15 years myself, I am always interested in how other operators run their business. Steve and his team (3 of them were on the boat) are really accommodating, very professional, have good equipment and ran a very safe operation. We had a... More

I went on a two dive trip with divemaster Dave in July. We dived 2 sites just outside the harbour were the boat was kept. The first site had some nice coral in the shallows but we headed deep to 30m in a quick procession. I assumed we were going to see something spectacular, but there was nothing deep but... More

Hi, thanks for your review. I am very sorry you didn't have the experience you expected. We do have a quality guarantee that is advertised at our dive centre, so should you have let us know this at the time I would have been more than happy to offer either your diving at no charge, or another trip free of...

The Pacific Divers scuba course takes you diving in the coral lagoon and in open water. There is a lot to learn about safe diving, but its all logical and you get to practise it with the help of a good instructor. Raratonga Island is a divers paradise. A huge variety of pretty reef fish, plus turtles and other creatures,... More

My daughter (19) went on a dive with Pacific Divers and had a fantastic time. They were friendly, professional and she had an incredible dive seeing giant turtles, sharks, tonnes of fish and coral and just generally had a great day. Highly recommended.

Fantastic teachers! Great to meet you all, overwhelmingly helpful. I thank you for going out of your way to assist my friend while I was diving, she also had a great time learning to snorkel.

I was really disappointed with my experience with Pacific Divers. First off, let me preface this with some background on myself. I'm a very experienced diver that has previously worked in the dive industry. My needs from a dive shop are minimal, get me a tank, take me to a good dive location and let me dive my dive and...
