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...

We went on our first dive after doing the free 'Scooba session' at Pacific resort. Although first impressions were not good (the door fell off the van) the team were great taking out just the two of us. The boat was fantastic and quite new we were told and the instructor quickly swapped some of my gear when it wasn't... More

Did Open Water Diver course and a refresher for same with this group. Tom, Mitchell and Shaun were excellent, really enjoyed the training and dives. Our twelve year old son who had never dived before successfully obtained his Junior Open Water Diver qualification and had the best time, I think his term for his four dives was 'awesome". Great three... More

I am writing this review on behalf of the person I was with, but just want to say that the instruction given on a diving course was superb (ask for Tom, who was great). I am already qualified open water, but watched the excellent instruction and was impressed. My partner who took the course was obviously hugely impressed!
