Take a dive and see it live with The Dive Centre – THE BIG FISH

We are PADI 5 Star Dive Operators offering Quality Service, Dives, Equipment and Training

Lagoon diving. You can dive Rarotonga in clear, warm waters with fantastic visibility and diversity of marine life which makes it excellent for diving and snorkelling. If you’ve never been diving before we are a full service dive operation who can cater for all your needs and take you out for your first bubbles in a breath taking under-water world. Explore the abundant variety of lagoon fish right across the road in the Aroa Marine Reserve as a snorkeler/diver, or take a trip outside the reef to feel the difference that Rarotonga and The Big Fish has to offer.

If you are an experienced diver we guarantee you a personalised, relaxed atmosphere. We have time for our guests, either if you just rent equipment, do your dive course, a dive trip, or just pop in for a coffee. Safety first - our boats are manned with an Instructor; maximum 6 divers per Instructor.

Free scuba dive lessons in selected resort pools. Special catering for groups. Family fun - even younger kids can try it (please inquire further).

Environmental education and awareness - you can make a difference! We support the local NGO Te Ipukarea Society with donations as an Eco Dollar.

Most of our guests leave as friends - many with great memories of scuba diving the Cook Islands with The Big Fish. We encourage you to book ahead to avoid disappointment, so you also can take home great memories…
