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.

The most pleasing aspect was the safety side of things, Thanks again and I look forward to diving with you again in the... More

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

The crew at Dive Rarotonga are excellent, their dive gear is in good condition and the boat/facilities are great. My wife and I booked 10 dives with these guys on arrival in the Cook Islands, mostly due to the great reviews here on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed. Each day ran very smoothly with our gear being prepared... More

I went to Dive Rarotong for completing my OWD. Back in Germany I found the new OWD-certificate send from New Zealand. Everything went fine. Thank you again. Diving with you was a pleasure. Maybe I will have the chance to get back to Rarotonga sometime. :-)

Although the dive industry seems delightfully under-developed on the island, those two dives were among the best I've experienced in more than 200. The corals were the most diverse and healthy I've seen anywhere in the world,. including the Caribbean and Australia's Great Barrier Reef. We dived Edna's Anchor and Paradise. The latter was truly amazing, with abundant small and... More

The team at Dive Rarotonga are amazing. I felt 100% safe at all times and really appreciated all the dive knowledge and training they gave to me and my partner Jason. We both trained to get our open water dive certs here and think we were very lucky to have chosen Dive Raro! Can't rave enough about the great staff.... More
