Hear what Allie B and her husband have to say about their “First Class Diving” experience with us….

“We are very experienced divers who had one day in this part of New Zealand in which to go diving. We contacted Dive North by email in advance and they were very informative and efficient and already gave a very good impression. When we arrived (by cruise ship) they were waiting for us on the dock (our ship was late as well….) and they drove us to their dive boat.

The dive boat is absolutely excellent. A large motor yacht with a fantastic rear dive platform and two good xmas tree style ladders. There were several dive masters on board and they were all very professional and well trained as well as friendly and personable.

The boat skipper was also extremely professional and a great guy. We had booked their packed lunch and it was AMAZING!!!! Such delicious baguette rolls and huge. Coffee and tea were on offer throughout. We dived the Canterbury (very good) and a nearby reef which was also scenic. We hired wetsuits from Dive North as we did not have thick ones with us. They were of good quality.

To be honest I can find no fault with this operation and we would not hesitate to dive with them again anytime we are in this part of NZ. It was really really well run and such a lovely day. We shall long remember it. Thank you guys!”
