Traveled to Aotearoa-New Zealand for the PRIDoC conference but went early to dive with New Zealand Divers out of Warkworth, and to visit friends in Ohakune. No matter where I dive, I have no expectations and keep the plan simple: just go get wet! I'm always wonderfully surprised, as I was this trip. First dive- saw seaweed ( I love... More

Recently we completed 2 dives at little barrier island. We had a special opportunity to get close to a small pod of dolphins. It was truely remarkable to be in the presence of... More

There are moments in life you will never forget. This was definitely one of them. During the second day of my open water training, Neil, the manager, took us to this beautiful and excluded coast of Little Barrier Island where we encountered a pod of dolphins. We put on our scrub gears and dived into the sea. We can see... More

The other day a group of us headed out, with Neil, to Little Barrier Island. We had an absolutely fantastic day of diving! We were extremely fortunate to be joined by a small pod of common dolphins babysitting a young one. I had the feeling it would be a memorable day, and it sure was! We also saw a number... More

I've just completed my SDI OW Course with New Zealand Diving. Due to an unexpected change of plans, the OW dives were canceled in the scheduled dates, but I got the option of a free charter to Little Barrier for the inconveniences. Neil, the manager, and Will, one of the instructors, are both caring and experienced divers who make you... More

Neil runs a laid back, competent and very friendly dive shop, which is well equipped as well. Pretty sure if your an experienced diver or student you will have a great time and are in safe hands. Looking forward to doing more diving there very soon.

Arrangements went wrong because of rough weather and we went to NZ Diving to help us out of the problem. Neil and Tatts, at short notice, organised our open water dives. Tatz was great; professional,friendly and helpful, she put us... More

Neil organised a trip for a group of eight of us to dive the President Coolidge in Vanuatu and we had a fantastic time. We had a mix of reef and wreck diving which was excellent. Some of us were diving on Nitrox and some were diving on air. Some people even completed diving courses and Neil catered for us... More

Completed my open water dive course with Neil and Ellie - despite never having dived before they did an excellent job of making everybody participating feel comfortable in the water. There was a healthy focus on safety and the atmosphere was fun. I would definitely dive with them again
