Due to weather conditions, the final confirmation of the dive was only given in the morning - understandable as weather can be tricky. Onu and his wife were lovely. The gear is well maintained. During the day they were very attentive and caring. We had 2 dives around the same area (covering different spots on each dive) - the abundance... More

Onu and his wife took the time to ensure everything was organised. Everything was done and the gear was set up for me. The only thing I had to do was try on a wetsuit. We anchored just outside the lagoon and saw so much 'big' wildlife, it just blew my mind. We saw about half a dozen green turtles,... More

Really great dive sites, lots of big stuff, Reef sharks, turtles, Eagle Rays & Napoleon Wrasse, as well as heaps of reef fish. Dylan & Onu are very organised & friendly. I had a great time with them.

We had a great couple of days diving with Onu and Dylan - we weren't expecting to see too much but were pleasantly surprised! The visibility was great, fish and turtles were HUGE, including a few sleeping sharks. The gear is well maintained, boat is comfortable with some hot chocolate between dives. We came back from every day diving to... More

Good organization and dive site. Plenty of well cared for scuba gear. You do not need you own gear, maybe just your own mask, if you love using your own mask. I was concerned about how they put the anchor on the reef. I think they need a mooring ball.

Onu was super friendly, we cruised out on his boat for just 10min and we got to crystal clear water just outside of the lagoon. Even though it was raining and a little breezy, under the water was a different world with great visibility, many beautiful fish, turtles, reef sharks, colour changing coral. I've only done 13 dives and this... More

Really enjoyed my dives with Onu and Menema. I was picked up promptly from my accommodation as arranged and taken to the shop where we were kitted out with high quality, well-maintained equipment. The dive sites were excellent - we saw sharks, turtles and many types of fish. Highly recommended.

What a delight! Onu and his wife made our diving experiences in Aitutaki something very special. Fantastic service, great dive sites in close proximity with lots to see.

3 of us went diving with Onu and his wife in December 2015, a trip so good it will be remembered for a VERY long time! For 2 of us, it was the first set of dives outside of training so understandably there were some nerves. That quickly went away as Onu guided us expertly from start to finish and... More

Onu and his wife run a great operation here. Got picked up from my accommodation and kitted out at the dive shop. Got the impression that the dive equipment is well maintained. Dived at two fantastic sites. First had a large cavern to swim through and great encounters with some reef sharks. Visibility was excellent. Onu was a great guide... More
