Dive Rarotonga were recommended to us by the information centre in Avarua and I'm pleased they did. We were immediately impressed with their professionalism, but completely blown away by their passion for diving and sea life. We did 4 dives over two days and were made to feel relaxed and valued as recreational divers. The crew even took care of... More

Yep, maybe we are fussy divers and so nothing special for us, but if you wanting to learn to dive then you should only go with this company as they are certainly geared up to teach. Diving on the island is difficult with winds and places to launch so i would expect most to grade them higher

Dive Rarotonga staff are very professional, very focused on safety and comfort of divers. We did eight dives over two days, a different dive site each time, and had a really fun time! The diving was really relaxing – calm conditions, +30m visibility, lots of cool corals and different species of fish, including loads of wrasse, triggerfish, butterflyfish and angelfish,... More

We did our open water course over 2 weekends with the team at Dive Rarotonga. We had great fun and felt very safe in their hands! The water in Rarotonga is very clear and our dive was amazing, we saw a little green turtle! I would recommend any visitors to Rarotonga planning to dive to use this company!

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.
