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

I agree with outdoorsygal. My 3 kids experienced the introduction to scuba and Karen was absolutely fantastic. Two of my kids were quite nervous but with Karen quickly relaxed in the pool and couldn't wait for the ocean dive. The dive was a major highlight for all of us. The actual sea life and visibility were stunning...and the Dive Rarotonga... More
