Dive 'Evolution'

Dive from our new 7.5m dive boat named ‘Evolution’, designed by a New Zealand marine architect in conjunction with real divers to suit all your diving needs. 'Evolution' was built with safety and comfort in mind, the hull has pontoons that reduce roll, comfortable seating, tank racks and hand rails.

There’s a safe swim platform at the back for your giant stride entries and a big ladder with handrails to make getting back aboard just as easy. Our boats are equipped with standard safety gear and we also have GPS, marine VHF, EPIRB, life-jackets, oxygen and first-aid on board.

Our boats are manned while you dive !

We don't just claim it, we actually do it ! We man our boats on every single dive with a qualified Boatmaster while you are underwater. Our skippers are also rescue trained and are qualified dive masters or instructors. Their job, for your safety, is to keep watch while you are guided underwater by a second instructor.

Apparently, when it comes to boarding ladders - size matters!

Some of our recent students - congratulations!
