All the technical course’s are conducted so you are not only safe but enjoy the experience. The theory is easy to understand and the training is thorough. My Instructors were always keen to answer my many questions.
My journey has taken me to OC Trimix, CCR trimix, and more recently Divemaster. I have followed Tony to exotic places and have dived historic wrecks in places like Truk Lagoon and Scapa Flow – on both open circuit and my new rebreather.
Technical, Rebreather and Divemaster
Very friendly shop stocked with everything you could possibly need for scuba diving. I love going in here to get my air fills, they always have useful information about where is best to go diving, weather updates through the day to plan around, and every month there is a free social night to listen to interesting talks and chat with other divers over the BBQ. Before a lot of my weekend dives I phone the shop first to talk it over with them just in case there is somewhere with better vis. I got all my gear here as well as lots of extra bits and pieces to make my gear work better for me. They take their time making sure that everything fits right and don’t rush into the sale. I got to sit down with a cup of tea and talk about what kind of diving I am planning to do, so what gear would be best. I have gone on a few trips and found them to be very fun as well as a huge focus on safety.
Sunday 20th November 2011 I successfully completed my PADI Instructor Examination in Wellington. I had finally fufilled a personal goal. Although the IE was challenging, I was prepared for every phase of the two day examination. I put it all down to the excellent training and preparation on the Instructor Development Course, lead by Course Director Tony Howell. The IDC was challenging, exciting and rewarding all at the sametime. I highly recommend anybody that is interested in being a PADI Instructor, please talk to Tony at New Zealand Sea Adventures, a TOP PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre.
PADI Open Water SCUBA Instructor
In 2011, New Zealand Sea Adventures opened my eyes to the underwater world. I have so far done my Open Water and Advanced Open Water course with the shop and it has been a fantastic experience. Both the courses were a lot of fun and I felt safe and looked after by the staff during my first under water adventures.
Besides learning my dive skills from the knowledgeable and friendly staff, this shop offered me more. I have gained a lot off knowledge from the Wednesday night crew nights, where Tony and his staff teach you everything from the latest dive gear to exciting dive spots, and where you have the opportunity to meet new dive buddies. I always feel welcome to go into the shop anytime, ask a few questions and walk out with new interesting knowledge. I look forward to the next course and club dive.
