OK, so the weather early this month was indifferent. Yet that doesn't stop Dive North showing you a great time. Owner, instructors, guides and even Mr Mutley (the dog) are incredibly friendly, loyal and helpful. They have an excellent product, the wonderful waters of the Bay of Islands area and two great wrecks, Rainbow Warrior and HMNZS Canterbury. They make these and their surrounding reefs, caves and tunnels into an awesome combination then add superb lunches and freshly cooked pancakes.

Inn Keeper is a first rate boat, perfectly suited to her task, fully equipped with every facility, fast, sturdy and safe. Sites are carefully selected with due deference to weather conditions on-site and for transits. A thoroughly professional organisation to which we returned from the UK four years after our last experience. Confirmed cold-water divers (200 and 1,000 dives), well used to wreck penetration, large tides and the rugged landscapes of Scotland, the Bay of Islands kept us more than satisfied for three days of excellent diving.

Grateful thanks to Dave, Dan, Katie and Billie,
Mike & Mark

My partner and I went diving with Dive North beginning of Nov 2015. We are a couple with qualification level Advanced and Instructor. Our different experience level was no problem at all. We did 3 wreck dives and discovered 3 reef dive sites. Every site had its own unique character and was well chosen for the conditions. We were neither bored or too challenged with a site. Katie is an experienced guide and looked after us well under water as well as on the boat. She spoilt us with yummy pancakes and made sure every need was fulfilled. As we booked for 3 days, Dave, the owner, gave us a great deal including free pictures and lunch. He's the skipper too and prepared our lunches himself. On our way to the dive sites we got some history lessons about the area too which were very interesting. We highly recommend Dive North as the family owned business is looking after each customer as an individual and has years of experience in the area with even their own discovered dive sites. All the dive gear is in very good condition and serviced regularly by Dave. Thanks so much for the unforgettable time, guys!

Very friendly and component staff, nice weather, calm sea, an amazing wreck (HMNZS Canterbury) to do your specialty and fresh pancakes to top off two great days of diving.

Had 2 great days doing my Advanced Open Water with Dan, Katie and Dave. Dan is a knowledgeable instructor who pointed out the right points for me to pay attention to. I always felt safe and relaxed in the water with him by my side. Skipper Dave led us to the nicest diving spots in the area and brought us safely back to shore through the windy conditions.

We did two dives with Dan (Dive master) and Dave (captain). We had a bit of a snafu the morning of the dives and they were both SO accommodating! Our first dive was around a small island and into a cave. Neither of us are 100% used to water this cold (15 degrees this day) so this first, shorter, shallower dive was a great starting point. Our second dive was to an awesome wreck dive called the Canterbury. Dan was awesome to dive with! Showed us all around the wreck and took us through some amazing parts of the ship. We loved it! The ride back was great and they gave us some fun suggestions of things to do in Kerikeri. Overall, it was fantastic!
