My husband and 13 year old completed 12 dives with this team over 10 days. Special thanks to Karen and Paul who took them out. Safety +++ was paramount to this team and the fact that they had the safety of my family as the most important thing, means so much to me. My son is officially hooked now on... More

I was in Rarotonga the first week of Dec 2014 and Dive Rarotonga were absolutely fantastic to dive with. Everything about their operation revolved around safety. We went to some awesome sites on the north of the island and they were flexibly depending on what we wanted. They had a great 2 dive deal when compared to other companies on... More

The guys at Dive Rarotonga were amazing to my girlfriend and I over the week we spent on the island. The owners, Ed and Karen, were knowledgable about the dive locations, professional, priced very fairly and proactive in accommodating our diving needs. I highly recommend Dive Rarotonga to anyone who wants a quality diving experience whilst having a laugh along... More

I had the chance to dive with Dive Rarotonga on Nov 27, 2014. We did 2 dives in the morning, each about 45 min long. The weather wasn't great, but who cares when you are going to be underwater! Paul and Karen each led a dive with 2 of us. They are both very nice and kept a good eye... More

We ad the most wonderful time with the Dive Raro team. Our dive guides Paul and Eduardo were brilliant - they made us so happy and confident in the water (we were both beginners) that we went back for two more dives we hadn't planned! One tip though - if you're not sure whether to go for the PADI course... More

Nice friendly crew (Ed, Karen, and Paul). Simple honest service at a good price; and a pleasure to be with. The dive sites were interesting and I wouldn't hesitate going out with them over and over.

I had never been diving before, these guys made me feel at home. Starting with a test run in their pool followed by a trip out in open water. Great trip out, some of our group even went for another day out. Easily best on the island.

Having completed OW back in NZ I was first a little hesitant to book a dive trip on raro. I am SO GLAD I did. These guys are safety focused, totally professional without being "over the top". Absolutely worth the $100 for two dives, equipment and a VERY experienced dive guide. Thanks guys....Dale (trained by Global Dive). AUCKLAND NZ
