Hi Divers

The weather has been a lot better this week and we have had the shortest day, so hopefully we will get lots of calm winter days over the next few months.


Sunday morning meeting at the shop at 9.30am


Dive Wellington has one of the highest rates of female divers in the Country. To celebrate women in diving, we are organizing an underwater adventure dive to give some insight into continuing education courses. We will have female instructors and Dive Masters running the day. Sign up for the dive and some well-deserved treats (a drink and a bite to eat) after the dive. 

Join us for just $45 which includes standard cost of gear hire plus a small fee to cover the post dive treats. Of course, we are more than happy for men to join us to show their appreciation too.

Contact us for more information or if you would like to sign up for our Women's Dive Day.


Are you thinking about a new drysuit? Our Aqualung Rep will be here with samples and available to answer any questions. Try one on and if the weather is suitable, we can offer a trial dive in a drysuit. There will be a small fee if you need gear hire as well. Let us know if you would like to book a dive.

Dive Against Debris Specialty

If you happen to have a day off work Thursday 29th of June, we thought you might be interested in collecting some rubbish during a dive to become a Project Aware - Dive against Debris diver. This course is a great way to get involved and work towards a healthier planet and for just $75 you can become a certified PADI Dive against Debris Specialty Diver (excludes equipment hire) "Don't Let Your Dives Go To Waste".

Contact us if you would like some more information or to sign up for this course.


Congratulations to all the divers that have completed courses over the last couple of weeks: We had another 6 College students complete their open water course as well as George Wu. Connie and Kuki completed their rescue course. Ryan and Timmy completed their Sidemount courses. Stu and Ryan completed their deep specialty and Judy and Ryan their wreck specialties.

Our fulltime Diploma students have been busy with one group spending the week doing first aid instruct and pre hospital emergency care while the other group has been doing specialty instructor qualifications.

Have you thought about becoming a Dive Master. Come along to the shop this Sunday at 4.30pm to hear exactly what’s involved in the course.


Our group is back from diving Truck Lagoon in Micronesia. The diving was fantastic with up to 50 meters visibility and water temperatures of around 30 degrees. We did well over 20 dives on wrecks, planes, submarines and even a shark dive. The liveaboard boat was amazing with 5 star meals, an open bar and a lift to bring you out of the water at the end of your dive. Thanks everyone for a great trip. We will have some footage up on our facebook page later this week.

Let us know if you would like more details on any of the trips below:

We have ended up with an odd number on next year’s Fiji trip, so we have one space available. Spend a week in Fiji doing 10 dives including 4 shark dives and 6 reef dives. The trip includes flights from Wellington, transfers and accommodation with a room to yourself.

In 2019 we are looking at heading to Papua New Guinea. We need to book this trip early as it is very popular.

We have a trip heading to Northland October 13th to 15th. Weather permitting the plan is to dive 3 days including a day at the Poor Knights and 2 days in the Bay of Islands.


Thanks for being a Dive Wellington customer and helping to make us Wellington biggest and best dive store. We hope to see you in the water soon, from the team at Dive Wellington Dave, Paula, Josh, Mandy and Alex.
