Great afternoon spent with Stuart. Everything was easy from getting to the boat to getting in the water. Thank you Stuart for looking after us and for all the very interesting information about the local underwater world. Hot drinks really appreciated. We'll do again if we come back in the area.

Had a sweet day exploring the Mikhail Lermontov this past wknd. Stuart was a great skipper and support for the day, giving us a local insight into the Sounds. Highly recommend WDC and the wreck. Thanks for a memorable day team! Will definitely be back for more!

Thanks so much to Stu and Kate (and Katie!) for a treat dive! Weather was great, dive was unique, and the tomato soup and mulled wine really made the trip! Thanks and will see you again!!

Stewart and Kate were awesome. They organised a last minute rescue course for my friend visiting from Australia. They were very friendly and professional, I even got to go along on the boat to be a victim needing multiple rescues. Our time with them was great and I would highly recommend Waikawa Dive Centre for any diving needs in the area.

I had the best day doing my discover scuba with Kate and Stu! Normally the discover scuba is 4 hours or so, but Kate and Stu let me come along on the boat all day while Kate juggled teaching me and helping three other divers finish their PADI training. It was a fantastic day - the scuba diving was really fun, the fish were very friendly, the snacks on board the boat were delicious and the company was very warm and jovial. Would highly recommend these guys to anyone wanting a great scuba diving experience or just a lovely day on a boat in the Sounds!
