Dive Center


  • Clear water, few currents and hard coral formations with a myriad of fish life await
  • The terrain and fish life in these waters are extremely varied, making the dives exciting and unforgettable
  • Dive with sharks and rays, and approach the friendly sea turtles for some great interactions and photo opportunities
  • Isolated by thousands of square miles of ocean, Rarotonga’s fringing reef is washed by the clean, clear waters of the South Pacific so diving conditions are usually pristine


Pacific Divers is a 5* Green Star Award PADI dive shop operating daily dive trips in the Cook Islands' Rarotonga.

Rarotonga is surrounded by more ocean than any other place on Earth. It is in the centre of the water hemisphere. Dives with Pacific Divers include coral terrain dives, canyons, drop offs and drifts. Fish life is varied and includes hawksbill and green turtles, white tip and grey reef sharks, napoleon wrasse, giant moray, giant clams and a myriad of reef fish and invertebrates. Clear waters and very mild currents make for a wonderful experience.

The reef is characterised by a gently sloping plateau out to about 30m / 100ft, where the reef steepens and ‘drops off’ into the abyss. The south side of the island is characterised by a shallow lagoon, offering exciting canyon dives with sharks, rays and turtles often present. The north coast of the island has the most coral cover with huge porites bommies mushrooming up and forming overhangs and gullies. Turtles can be easily approached on this coast, offering great interactions and opportunities for photography.
