I had the chance to get my Divemaster Course done with Dive Rarotonga. I did more than 50 dives with Karen, Ed and Paul. To make a long story short: every single one of theses dives was great! They take good care of their equipment, they absolutely know the island and the best dive sites to go to (depending on... More

Missed the second dive but the own came and picked me up. Would dive again but maybe with sea sickness meds or... More

We did a lot of diving with these guys. They are very safe. Their equipment is excellent. The boat is always manned while we were under the water. The dive guide (Karen) is extremely good. She takes her time to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. They also catered for our needs. My wife didn't want to dive early every... More

My husband and 13 year old completed 12 dives with this team over 10 days. Special thanks to Karen and Paul who took them out. Safety +++ was paramount to this team and the fact that they had the safety of my family as the most important thing, means so much to me. My son is officially hooked now on... More

I was in Rarotonga the first week of Dec 2014 and Dive Rarotonga were absolutely fantastic to dive with. Everything about their operation revolved around safety. We went to some awesome sites on the north of the island and they were flexibly depending on what we wanted. They had a great 2 dive deal when compared to other companies on... More

The guys at Dive Rarotonga were amazing to my girlfriend and I over the week we spent on the island. The owners, Ed and Karen, were knowledgable about the dive locations, professional, priced very fairly and proactive in accommodating our diving needs. I highly recommend Dive Rarotonga to anyone who wants a quality diving experience whilst having a laugh along... More

I had the chance to dive with Dive Rarotonga on Nov 27, 2014. We did 2 dives in the morning, each about 45 min long. The weather wasn't great, but who cares when you are going to be underwater! Paul and Karen each led a dive with 2 of us. They are both very nice and kept a good eye... More

We ad the most wonderful time with the Dive Raro team. Our dive guides Paul and Eduardo were brilliant - they made us so happy and confident in the water (we were both beginners) that we went back for two more dives we hadn't planned! One tip though - if you're not sure whether to go for the PADI course... More
