I recently had the pleasure of diving with Dive North out of Kerikeri, New Zealand. I also stayed at the owner's, Dave and Sue, home stay for 2 nights. My situation was somewhat unique in that I had a very short time to explore around New Zealand following a long expedition on board an oceanographic research vessel. I finished work... More

I completed my PADI open water qualification with them and had a great experience . While professional they are also very friendly and approachable. . If your around the Bay of Islands, then this is a must do experience,... More

We contacted Dive North by email in advance and they were very informative and efficient and already gave a very good impression. When we arrived (by cruise ship) they were waiting for us on the dock (our ship was late... More

We spent the day with Dive North diving the Canterbury and a near by reef! The whole package from booking the day with Sue and her advice on the dives to the professionalism of Katie and Dave were great! The Canterbury was an awesome dive, I was a little nervous as I haven't done that many deep dives yet but... More

Did 2 trips with Dive North - can offer nothing but praise. As others have said: excellent kit, great staff (Dave, Katie & Dan), concise dive briefings. Thanks esp to Katie for guiding inside HMNZS Canterbury - she was completely right in saying that this is a wreck dive for people who aren't particularly enthusiastic about wreck diving - great...
