Dive North was an amazing company to work with. My wife and I decided to get our PADI open water certification and Dive North accommodated us last minute. Compared to the other companies in north New Zealand, this is hands down the best bargain. Our instructor, Daniel, was very patient with us and always made us feel comfortable. If you... More

We booked a days diving and overnight accommodation specifically to dive the Rainbow Warrior. We were told that if the weather was bad we might have to dive the Canterbury. Fair enough, so we paid the deposit. On arrival we were shown to our accommodation which was a very small room with shared bathroom. We were kept awake by staff... More

I did a two dive trip with Dive North. We dived at the Canterbury and the reef nearby. It was an enjoyable day - the staff were friendly, helpful and fun; and everything ran smoothly. Both sites were enjoyable to dive at. I thought the inclusion of pancakes was a cute touch.

Hi there, I came and spent a day with you with two of my friends on 27th December. We didn't get to see the Rainbow Warrior but had a great day out none the less to the HMNZS Canterbury and one of the other reef sites around. I liked that i was able to go at my own pace too.... More

I had the pleasure of living in Kerikeri for almost 3 months for work. I got in touch with Sue and Dave because I wanted to do as much diving as possible while in the area. There's no need to consider another dive operator in the area. I did some training with them as well as just going out and... More

The service, instruction and overall experience with Dive North was outstanding in practically all facets, so rather than detail the two days we spent with them in detail I will cover off my highlights: 1. The calm, professional and courteous instruction we received. Our instructor Dan introduced himself to us immediately and from that point on ensured we knew exactly... More

Suggestions: 1. When you depart in the boat, and have left one of your customers still at the wharf! - apologise to that person! Don't make a joke about it! I was really annoyed at being left for 40 minutes while you turned around to collect me. How does this happen? Don't you do a Roll-Call of the list of... More

Thank you for your feedback Mark; it is interesting to read and you certainly have given us something to consider. Having reviewed the day with all the staff and some customers on the boat that day we feel there are some corrections to be made. Firstly, as owner and skipper of the boat on the day, I have to say... More

Absolutely amazing dive trip, the skipper was awesome and so were those helping him, so energetic and keen to take people like myself out to dive and do courses. The wrecks were spectacular and so were all the other dives. I will definitely be coming back some time to do more diving with you.

I started my Open Water course at Dive North with Sarah as my instructor. Everyone in the team is so nice and from the first day on you feel like you are on a family trip rather than on a paid dive experience. And even if someone is not your instructor and has other things to do, they are all... More
