I had a very nice experience with Dive Rarotonga. I stopped by the dive shop very late in the afternoon looking for a dive trip the next day. They happened to have an opening and let me tag along. The staff was very friendly and informative. I really enjoyed chatting with our dive master, Paul both before and after our... More

I visited all the dive shops when I arrived and booked in with Pacific Divers as they quoted the cheapest price. Unfortunately, being the cheapest is not always a good thing and when I arrived to dive the next day, they cancelled on me since I was the only one booked in. It wasted a full day of my 3... More

Our two daughters aged 17 and 20 wanted to have a try at scuba diving. We chose Dive Rarotonga after it being recommended. It was also ideally situated right next to where we were staying at the Crown Beach Resort and Spa on the western side of the island. This was an amazing experience for them from start to finish....

I was keen to try my first scuba dive during my visit to the Cook Islands, and had a fabulous experience with Dive Rarotonga. I booked a Try Dive with Paul, and although the price was slightly higher ($180) as no-one else booked on for that afternoon, I still felt that I received excellent value for money. Diving safety was... More

These guys were recommended to us by a dive company in NZ as the best on the Island. We went for 2 sessions (4dives) as 1 session was so much fun we had to go again. Best experience. Loved it. Felt very safe and in professional hands. Haven't been able to stop talking about it and can't wait to get... More

They are so safety concious and have great systems worked out for new divers you have no reason to have second thoughts about learning to dive with these... More

If safety around diving is something you're interested in these guys are the only dive centre in Rarotonga you should be looking at... All three are instructors and Paul a life saver. The diving was excellent, they've been there for years. Really relaxed bunch of people. Dive with them if your looking in raro :)

Ed, Karen and Paul were just amazing. At the beginning I was so nervous to learn all these new things. All of them always find the right words to make me feel much more comfortable. Everything was more than professional, it was personal! Thank you so much, for encouraging me to keep on learning to become a good diver. Thank... More
