New Zealand Sea Adventures

PADI logo PADI 5 Star IDC Resort


New Zealand Sea Adventures was established in 1990 by Tony Howell. From that point NZ Sea Adventures has grown to become the leading PADI SCUBA diving training facility in Wellington. NZ Sea Adventures was awarded the Wellington Regions first PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre rating in 2000. We have twice received prestigious awards from PADI for our ‘Outstanding Contribution to the Dive Industry’ as well as individual Instructor commendations.

We are acknowledged as being arguably the safest and most professional diver training centre in the Region. Having our own on-site dive pool allows us to take as long as necessary to ensure all our students are confident of their new skills before we begin the sea dives. We focus on training to the highest PADI standards, supplying the best dive equipment available and leading our clients on exciting dive adventures. Safety is our number one concern.

Once you are a qualified PADI Open Water Scuba Diver, you may choose to continue your diving education by attending our Advanced Open Water Diver course and/or qualifying on one or more of our Specialty Diver courses.

New Zealand Sea Adventures is Wellington’s senior Technical diver training facility. We offer several Technical courses comprising skills which will add to your Recreational diving competence. As an example, Side-mount equipment and skills are complementary to re-breather and decompression diving.

The ocean is our greatest life source and diving in it is the most amazing experience. This is why NZ Sea Adventures has always helped, supported and educated our divers in ways to help our environment. We are a PADI environmental award winning Operator as we strongly believe the health of our planet is dependent on the health of our oceans.

Our staff are friendly, passionate and excited about diving and we welcome you to come in and chat about your diving dreams. Together we will help you achieve your diving goals and aspirations.
