Dive Centre Ltd turned 50 on 2 September 2022!

Outside Web

That's right! We've turned 50 and we're better than ever! It has now been half a century since Guy & Margaret Kidd opened Dive Centre Ltd on the 2nd of September 1972!

We are incredibly proud to still be here serving NZ's scuba diving fans and can only look forward to another great summer coming soon!

Today, Malcolm Kidd and his team want to thank you for choosing us as your dive experts, learning to dive, taking our advice on equipment you need, keeping you safe by servicing your gear, and more importantly getting out into the underwater world we all love.

We are here Monday to Saturday to take care of anything you need for your scuba adventures, and we can't wait for you to come check out our new store in Constellation Drive!

Brand new retail showroom and "two" state of the art service bays now operating!

Work on our new retail showroom is finished! Come and check out all the new gear you'll need for summer (or those of you lucky enough to be getting away for a winter dive trip overseas)! We have LOTS of stock of new model Regs, BCD's and dive computers, not to mention all the accessories you'll ever need.

Showroom Web

We have also finally finished our two brand new "State of the Art" service bays with matching sets of the most advanced service equipment available in the world!

Imported from specialist manufacturers overseas, these machines, bench equipment, and tools are cutting edge and designed to ensure that your equipment is maintained to the highest global standards.

Test Bench Web

We now have two fulltime service techs, using their decades of experience and the best service equipment available, to make sure you have fun safely underwater this season and many to come!

Side 2nd Stage Tester Web

We have imported regulator testing equipment that no one else has in New Zealand.

In this new "post-covid" world, we have upgraded our diagnostic and tuning bench equipment to eliminate the need for a service tech to ever breathe through your regulator, and even vacuum tests 2nd stages to ensure they are watertight! A design that provides piece of mind to you and us, and is a first for New Zealand!

We even have a machine that "beds-in" the new high and medium pressure seats in your reg before we tune it. This means no freeflow issues during your first dives after servicing - just another way we are using new technology and upgraded procedures to ensure you don't have gear issues in the water.
