During the xmas peak Aquamarine were good enough to squeeze us in for a dive on the Coolidge. They picked us up and took us to the dive site for two dives with a morning tea of fruit etc in between. They were great organising everything by email - thanks!

Earlier in the year I decided to dive the Coolidge and went with Aquamarine. They were prompt and courteous in providing information. They also organised accommodation and transport from the airport as well for me, so I was conveniently located at the Espiritu hotel in the centre of Luganville (Aquamarine HQ is located here). Once I got to the hotel... More

Thanks Gareth, it was great having you dive with us over the holidays! Glad you enjoyed it and I will definitely pass along your feedback to Rex - he's a quite guy but loves getting positive feedback from our divers.

We dived with Aquamarine in early December - SS Coolidge and Million Dollar Point in a morning. My husband is a very experienced (Rescue) diver - 3 years in PNG will do that! But me? Not so much - perhaps 50 dives, the last more than 10 years ago. Nonetheless, we had a terrific time with Aquamarine. The dives themselves... More

Just spent a week in Luganville diving with Aquamarine and with them co-located at the Espiritu hotel this was easy stress free diving. They took me to all the cool spots on the Coolidge and the Hash dives was a nice way to improve your wreck penetration skills. Aese reef dives were great but even better was the pig on... More

I dived over a two week period with three different dive staff. The local dive staff have a playful attitude above water but underwater they looked after the divers and grouped skill sets accordingly so new divers could be looked after while not limiting experienced divers. There were the only dive company that checked our dive certifications. Rex's hash tour... More

Gear is not brand new as advertised. Sizes are limited. One size weights. Not registered with any dive organisations. Unqualified guides. There is thorough report about incident that happened recently with diver who lost her life. Not worth risking your life.

My wife and I went diving for three days with Aquamarine. Their standards are excellent, their guides are professional and friendly, and know the President Coolidge inside out. (some have been diving her for over 20 years...). Rehan and Jen are an excellent couple and experienced operators, Adam, Dave, Tula and Rex are an excellent team that support them, and... More

Thanks Simon, love getting reviews like that! We try hard to make our guests feel like they are diving with friends (which, by the end of their holiday, they are!) so its nice to hear that is exactly how it felt for you guys. Come on back with your rebreather and we'll clock up some serious bottom time. More

I spent a bit longer in Santo than most and did 17 dives with Aquamarine. Rehan, Adam, Dave, Tula and Rex are a fantastic team: fun, friendly and efficient. I felt safe and comfortable on every dive, and for each dive my actual dive profile was well below my computer's deco profile. But I didn't miss out on anything and... More
