We are NZ's biggest Dive Retailer / Service Centre

History - Not only are we New Zealand's longest serving dive family, (we have run Dive Centre Ltd since 1972) but our 6,000 sq ft of dive retail and service facilities at 97 Wairau Road on Aucklands North Shore is the biggest retail showroom of scuba equipment in New Zealand. 

We teach diving - In fact no one has been teaching diving for longer in New Zealand. We are now teaching third generations of families to dive.

People - Good service starts and ends with our staff - dedicated scuba mad Instructors that live and breathe diving. They love teaching diving and they win awards from PADI proving how good they are at it! We are an independent family run dive training company that again goes the extra distance to make sure you enjoy getting into our great sport - we do not dive in Lake Pupuke - we think diving is supposed to be fun!

Places - All our beginner courses are run at Leigh & Goat Island Marine Reserve using our two 6m inflatables - NOT lake diving - NOT land-based beach diving. Our Advanced courses are all fun weekends away in the Bay of Islands diving the world class Naval frigate wreck HMNZS Canterbury. We don't use a Lake for our Rescue Courses like other shops do - we use the ocean - the most realistic environment for learning important rescue techniques.

Experiences - We train from beginner to deep technical divers, through to Dive Master and right up to Instructor.

Equipment maintenance - All dive equipment servicing is done on-site by a certified service technician in all major brands whose job it is to maintain your equipment to the highest standards.

Cylinder testing - We are an IANZ ISO9002 approved Cylinder testing laboratory for on-site testing of scuba, BA, Industrial Gas, Air Storage, CNG, and LPG cylinders.

Air Quality - We have invested in Bauer Compressors and custom-made over sized filtration systems computer monitored to ensure high quality air at all times. We always fill in water baths to ensure fills as close as possible to maximum working pressure, and to be able to check for leaks instantly. We are certified to fill neat sweet clean dry filtered Air, as well as Enriched Air Nitrox, and Tri Mix on-site.

Computer Servicing - We have the best dive computer service facilities in New Zealand. Climate controlled, Electrostatic Discharge protected workstations, ESD gloves and tools mean your dive computers are maintained to the highest possible standard. We are the sole approved service centre for the world’s leading brand Suunto Dive, Outdoor and Performance watches and computers in New Zealand.

Trusted by those in the know - We are a wholesale service company that service dive equipment for other dive shops from all over New Zealand. We are trusted by them for their own company's good name and their customers safety, because they know the lengths we've gone too to build the best facilities and for the fact that we take fun & safety underwater seriously.
