Thanks to everyone at AquaSamoa for a great day of diving. I particularly enjoyed the wreck for 'a bit of everything' including a couple of turtles and lots of nudibranchs. Everyone in the team went out of their way to make the day all about me. A highlight was an ice cold, fresh coconut milk during the surface interval...cracked open with a dive weight! The staff are all helpful, extremely friendly and professional and I will definitely be diving with them again on my return to Samoa.

I went out for two dives and it was absolutely fantastic. It was probably the best diving experience I have had up to now and I would have loved to stay on the island and go diving with them for the rest of my vacation. Not only did we see a lot (a wreck, turtles, etc) but I felt completely safe and taken care of. The instructor, Nick, was amazing and so much fun! This afternoon was the highlight of my entire trip!

Hi Annette, Its was a great afternoon of diving, given that you arrived on the MV Albatros, which didn't berth until 1.00pm. Even with the delay in disembarking due to the additional health screening, you waited patiently and were the first passenger off..... Karin was there to greet you and transport you to our Dive Shop only a short dive away and then onto the boat and into the water as quickly as possible so that you could enjoy what Samoa has to offer under the sea. Thank you for your wonderful comments about your experience with us. Safety is a priority to our business and we are so glad that you had such a fantastic time during your brief stopover in Samoa and scuba diving in our tropical warm waters. It was a pleasure meeting you and wish you safe travels for the remainder of your cruise and your extended stay in Melbourne catching up with a long time friend... Kind regards Ted Thompson and the crew from AquaSamoa

I was in Samoa for about a month to visit family. I just got SCUBA certified 6 months earlier but only dove in fresh water. This was my first time in salt water. What a great memorable experience. I went on 10 dives total and each one was a unique experience. What a friendly knowledgable and professional staff. They supplied everything. All I brought was my mask. Diving in Samoa in December was awesome. At 50 feet under the temperature was at 80 degrees F. Was able to see incredible sea life, turtles and the highlight was seeing a 6 ft black-tip shark. It was awesome. (it wasn’t one that was dangerous). Next time I gotta bring a GoPro. Oh, talk about going above and beyond, I dropped my dive computer (a little smaller than the size of a hockey puck) and when instructor Nick heard me say “aw man, I dropped my computer”, he went down and searched for it right away and found it at 80 feet under. How he was able find it in all that coral is beyond me. But he said he got lucky that it was found sitting in a patch of sand. He tricked me when he came up. He said he couldn’t find it but said the only thing he found was this “hockey puck looking thing”. Needless to say there were a couple of beers to celebrate soon after. I had a great time and a great experience. Thank you Karin, Nick, Ben and Aqua Samoa staff! You totally took care of me. Hope to be back very soon! All the Best, Sapa Laolagi

Talofa Sapa, It is rare to meet a guest who has completed many Scuba Dives in freshwater only, like your self. It was our pleasure to introduce you to your first ever offshore boat diving adventure and experience what ocean diving in warm tropical waters has to offer, but even better than that, was that adventure happened here in your birth place - Samoa. Each day you were taken to different dive sites, which highlighted the diversity of our sites and the marine life within. No west suits needed here...just a rash top!!! That reef shark was one of the largest we have spotted and you got to share that moment with us and not to mention it did give you an excellent showing, as it also checked you out. Each day, the excitement and smiles upon your return uplifted us all. Dropping a small item in the ocean is like looking for a needle in a haystack, but luckily for you that the visibility was great and Nick spotted that hockey puck thing.....and returned it to you.. We ensure that your wonderful review is shared with our crew and look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to Samoa. Kind regards Ted Thompson and the crew from AquaSamoa

I went on two snorkeling dives with AquaSamoa. One a boat dive, the other was directly off-shore. These dives were a wonderful highlight of my time in Samoa. Swimming with a black tip reef shark and a green turtle at the drop-off was something that will stay happily in my memories for a long time. The service given by all at the dive shop was also much appreciated and way above average. If you visit Apia, a dive with AquaSamoa is a must.

Talofa Loanitierney, It was a pleasure being able to take you snorkeling. We are so happy that you enjoyed your experience with us here at AquaSamoa and that we were able to build your confidence in the water at the same time. The highlight was definitely the second day, offshore boat snorkel trip, spotting many fish and of course the black tip reef shark and the turtle who just appeared out of nowhere and just cruised around us. Thank you for your wonderful review and we hope you enjoyed the photo's sent to you. We look forward to seeing you again in the future, here in Beautiful Samoa. Kind regards Ted Thompson and the crew from AquaSamoa.

Big thanks to the whole team for this great experience. My 2 dives were so good that I actually wanted to go for two more the next day, but unfortunately the weather didn't allow to go out. Everyone from the office staff to the Diver Instructor to the Skipper are super friendly and helpful and took all the time to answer my questions and kept me up to date due to the change of weather conditions etc. The sites we went to were only 20 minutes from the pier in Apia and especially the second was one of the best sites I have seen so far. Turtles, Morays (even they are actually pretty hard to hind in Samoa), ghost corals, etc. Can't remember the name of what I saw, but It was a lot.

Hi N9353XUalexz, Thank you for the wonderful review and the comments made regarding our staff and crew. We will pass it onto them on your behalf. The weather prior to your dive as not the best but we did manage to get 1 day of diving in for you to experience our underwater world, here in Samoa. As you know we where expecting the vis to be down however to everyones surprise the vis below 3 - 4 metres was 20+, making for a great couple of dives and seeing turtles, morays, dragonet, and tuna among the many highlights of the marine life spotted on this dive. Your glowing smile on your return was our highlight. Unfortunately we were unable to take you the second day due to the weather conditions which you mentioned and we alerted you to this, however we did provide you with a great dive experience on the one day we could get your out. It was a absolute pleasure meeting you and so glad that you had such a wonderful time here with us and look forward to seeing you again sometime in the future in Beautiful Samoa. Kind regards Ted Thompson and the Crew from AquaSamoa
