The staff at Dive Raratonga take pride in ensuring your dive experience is safe and that they protect the marine environment. We had the pleasure of seeing an abundance of friendly fish and copious healthy coral. Spanish dancers are there for your viewing. If your qualified to dive deeper and the conditions permit there are sharks and some enormous Moray... More

Very professional dive masters, who controled the dives very well. Even though the weather was a bit against us, we were taken to some great spots for photography. Our guide pointed out many objects of interest for us to look at. He treally knew the dive sites well. A great crew all round.

My partner and I were very excited to do some diving in Rarotonga and are 100% confident that we chose the best dive operator on the island to dive with. I ended up doing 8 dives, and my partner did 5. Out of my 8 dives I dived 7 different dive sites including a drop off, wreck, and incredible coral... More

It has been such a great day out! Paul is hilarious and Ed was great to dive with! They were super professional. We had a great dive and Ed was interactive during the dive and kept showing us cool animals! I loved it!

I have done my diving course with Dive Rarotonga. Very professional and safe. Rarotonga has some really beautiful sites, and you can dive close to shipwrecks, too. These guys know what they do and show you some great site, plus you'll learn from the best.

First time diving and doing the open water course. My partner and I felt at ease in the pool with Karen. She was very thorough but kind and never rushed us. Our 4 dives out on the multitude of reefs were excellent with 40metres visbility. Overall we were very happy with the price, experience and outcome. Would definitely recommend Dive... More

Ed and Karen are running a great dive shop over on Rarotonga. The guys we went out with, Paul and Edward were very professional and most importantly were very passionate about diving. They did a great job sharing that passion, showing everyone the reef and running a very efficient dive trip. Well done and I'd definitely recommend them over other... More

We read in the Rarotonga Air magazine about trying night snorkelling. For $50 each off we went at sunset. It was so special. Soon we were under a blanket of stars paddling off shore. We saw clown fish, octopus, eels and teh usual colourful fish. Every so often I would float and just look up at the stars. A highlight... More
