“My brother Peter and I dove our brains out on my recent trip to New Zealand and the highlight was diving with Dave and Kate and coordinating with Sue at the shop. First off, their shop is a clean, well-stocked, first class operation. Sue is a joy and coordinated with me from the States and even helped me confirm further diving with another shop for White Island.

Besides the excellent diving, camaraderie, and professional atmosphere, I can’t fail to note that even though the conditions for diving on the Rainbow Warrior early on weren’t the best, later in the week when they did improve Dave and Sue went out of their way to make sure we were able to make that dive. They showed us a lot of care and attention that went beyond the normal dive operation and I will treasure my experience with them!”
