“Dive! Tutukaka- 5 Star Diving Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

My husband and I drove to Paihia to dive the world famous Poor Knights Islands. Dive! Tutukaka was amazing from start to finish. They brought our equipment onto the boat for us and set up all of the gear for both dives. Our divemaster, Josh, was awesome and we had such an amazing time with him as he pointed everything out under the sea. All of the staff were incredible and it was really such an enjoyable day being out at the Poor Knights Islands and Marine Reserve with Dive! Tutukaka. Thank you for making our trip to wonderful! Samara & Brandon

“Very professional organisation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

I had a day's diving and was very impressed with their attitude. Great fun and safety conscious. They do their utmost to ensure you have a good day. I liked the fact that they try to buddy you up with someone near to your own experience. Very knowledgable about the dive sites and marine life. I am a dive professional so look at all aspects of an operation when offering a rating. This operation is top drawer. Poor Knights is world renowned and very enjoyable.

Lovely day with the crew of Dive Tutukaka at the Poor Knights. Efficient and friendly check-in process to get kitted out; well looked after on board and some lovely diving too.

“A perfect day and it was”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

28th dec, did the perfect day trip, for young staff they were very friendly, professional, nothing a bother. Great trip, skippers commentary was great, loved the snorkelling, maybe not the array of sea life we've seen before but was fantastic all the same, and you had plenty of time unlike some trips we've been on, learning history of the poor knights made you proud to be a kiwi, would definitely do this trip again. We've snorkelled in Thailand and Great Barrier Reef, which was great but this was in our own back yard. Thanks for great trip.
