We also offer snorkelling and freediving trips by boat to the outer reef.
Our trips are designed to meet the demands of all our guests. Our friendly guides have been working for many years in the local dive industry. They are amongst the most experienced Divemasters and Instructors working in the Cook Islands and will show you some of the best diving Rarotonga has to offer. Our sea adventures include:
- Scuba Dive Trips to Rarotonga's best spots
- Introductory Dives • Refresher dives
- Recreational Diving Courses through PADI, SSI and SDI
- Technical Diver Training through TDI and SSI XR
- Outer Reef Snorkeling and Freediving Tours
We have dive and snorkel sites all around the island. Our favourite sites are the passages and drop-offs along the south coast, however, we also dive the north, west and east coast. The choice of dive sites is always dependent on sea conditions and diver experience.
All our dive trips are guided and our dive sites offer a variety of interesting terrain, from passages, caverns and swim-throughs to steep drop-offs and broken up shipwrecks. Rarotonga has a big variety of coral, tropical reef fish and other marine life.
We always keep our groups and course classes small, so you won’t be counting diver fins when you dive with us.
Our dive centre is also rebreather friendly and we store Sofnolime, and oxygen as well as helium for deeper, technical mixed gas dives. We conduct trips either at 8 AM or at 12:30 PM.
