“Humbled and awed by nature and hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Stayed with Dave and Sue to complete an advanced open water certificate, had an amazing time diving the Canterbury as it emerged out if the gloom and adventuring into the hull of the Rainbow Warrior, I had complete faith in their skills and teaching, they were so welcoming with their home and generous with hospitality, had heaps of stories to tell that keep us all up laughing late at night, met international people staying and all genuine and friendly, really amazing time and the stories they shared have definately increased my hunger for diving and life. Would absolutely reccomend for anyone who loves diving that Dive North is the place to learn and explore with

“Excellent Charter-Bay Of Islands Boat Hire”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Review for Bay of Islands Boat Hire. We rented Dave and Sues boat for the day - 10 of us! Fished and went to Roberton Island for picnic lunch and a swim. 8 hrs of family fun in the Bay. Very professional charter and extremely accommodating. We will definitely use their boat again on our next trip back to The Bay!!
