We had a wonderful day out diving with Craig and Stu diving the Rainbow warrior. We went in their RIB which was located about 40 minutes drive North of Paihia. They will transport you in their van and can hire all the gear if required. The boat takes you out from a local campsite - so there are toilets and showers available when you get back. They cater for small groups of divers which I prefer much more than larger groups. The boat ride is only about 6 minutes to the wreck site. We saw heaps of fish and had a good look around. The Rainbow Warrior lies in 18-24m of water.
Lunch is on a nearby island and there is a private spot for girls who need to pee!
I recommend their lunch box which is another $10 per person - great sandwiches, fruit, slice and chocolate.
The afternoon dive was with the seals who unfortunately didn't want to play. A nice shallow dive with lots of fish and things to look at.
I would highly recommend Paihia Dive. Great operators, friendly, and I felt very safe and well looked after.
