The customer service was excellent from the start to the end. Rehan, our point of contact, assisted us promptly with brilliant recommendations. We took his advice and went for the five day dive package. We were coupled with people who were diving the Coolidge. Guides were the best. I have not seen guides that experience and good in the water... More

Aquamarine is located centrally in Luganville, which was convenient as I stayed at The Espiritu. I booked a dive to Million Dollar Point for the 20th Feb and Rehon thoroughly explained the procedure to me as I had never dived before. Unfortunately I had to cancel last minute but Rehon was extremely understanding and I will not hesitate to book... More

I had a wonderful time diving Coolidge and Million dollars point with Aquamarine team. Diving Coolidge, especially "The Lady" and deeper (40m+), requires careful planning, because it is a decompression dive, which is not trivial for the recreational divers. The dives (2 days, 4 dives) were professionally planed and guided. The dive briefs were comprehensive and easy to follow. The... More

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

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

Thank you! Especially glad to hear you liked the Aese Island trip - we love running that tour, it feels like a fun day out with friends. By the end of your dive trip it felt like you were one of the team; we all hope we can see you back in Santo some time. 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.

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.
