The experience offered by Dive Wellington is nothing short of outstanding. Great location and some great local diving. Their knowledge of the surrounding dive sites is unsurpassed. Great friendly staff too. Highly recommended.

“Nicest people”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Every time I visit Dive Wellington I'm taken aback at how friendly the staff are, everybody you meet there will treat you like a long-lost friend, but never in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable. They're accomodating to all sorts of requests, and they always go the extra mile for fellow divers - I cannot imagine a nicer bunch of people to see wellington underwater with.

Pricing is competitive, and the staff are always willing to work with those on a budget and have plenty of optional luxuries and options for those who are not. The location is lovely, with the south coast offering beautiful scenic views out into cook strait, and has much in the way of marine life along reefs extending out into the bay, located directly outside the Taputeranga marine reserve they have great access to well-preserved marine life amidst wellington's kelp forests, and it can only get better as the reserve matures.

As a bonus, those interested in wreck diving would do well to check out the Lermontov wreck off the Marlborough Sounds, or the F69 frigate sunk only 5 minutes east of Island Bay.
