What To See

Rarotonga is an volcanic island and is completely surrounded by reef. After that the reef slopes down for 200 meters and to a depth of ~30 meters before it ends up in a drop off up to 4500 meters. Within these 200 meters we do our diving.

Because of this topography we don't have a huge amount of soft corals, but therefore there are beautiful hard coral formations. The various sides of the island offer you different kinds of dive sites.

We are able to show you a diverse range of diving including interesting drop-offs, canyons, caves, swim troughs, passages, wrecks (unfortunately well broken up). You might have the chance to see eagle rays, whitetip reef sharks, turtles, humpback whales (in winter time), baracudas, starpuffer fish, trevallies and much more.
