" I would highly recommend doing your PADI open water course with Dive Zone in Waipapa, 10 out of 10. I’ve been diving for years and years and the only reason I done it was because of my son’s birthday, we done it together , I learnt a heap of knew knowledge myself and had an amazing time. My son absolutely loved it as well. The team at dive zone were friendly, polite and very helpful..."
