  • New Zealand Sea Adventures is the best dive shop I’ve been to. The store itself is clean and well presented, but what’s more important is the great atmosphere there. I’ve done my Open Water and Advanced Open Water with them so far and right from the start there was fast communication and support whenever I needed it. I have always felt safe and well looked after during the training; I had a great time and it was just like being out with friends.  My Instructor was patient and helpful throughout the courses and that really took the pressure off. It was great to get back to the shop and talk about the dive with a cup of tea too. The crew nights are a nice touch and lots of fun, everyone there is friendly and makes you feel welcome.

  • Have enjoyed the service provided by your store.  Every time I have mentioned I have a problem with my gear you have offered a solution that has got me back into the water time and time again. You have a knack of sorting problems without fuss and in a very professional manner. Ever helpful and generous with their knowledge.

  • 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 had many great dive trips with the Crew to exotic places and have dived historic wrecks in places like Truk Lagoon and Scapa Flow – on both open circuit and my new Rebreather.

  • 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 fulfilled 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. The IDC was challenging, exciting and rewarding all at the same time. I highly recommend anybody that is interested in being a PADI Instructor that they talk to one of the Crew at New Zealand Sea Adventures, a TOP PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre.

  • 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.
