Dived both with Orca and Mike next door. We were not impressed with either. The gear has no depth gauge, fine if you have a computer, we had not brought ours as we were in Chile for 3 months and only diving Easter Island. None to rent. First regs the SPG did not work, we told them regs were changed... More

This snorkling trip was the worst experience of my 12 days visit at the island. I asked if this trip is suitable for beginners and the lady in the office said yes. The guide has not given any instructions and was not with us in the water. It were rough conditions and big waves. Lot of water came in to... More

I met with the owner who is French and has been 35years on the island so he happily shared his insight on how today's modern world influenced life on the island. He is passionate and very nice. He wanted to test my diving skills before going on a night dive at dive site Anchors reef which is a 5min boat... More

My first scuba dive with Orca was very good, but the second dive seemed rushed. The second dive was just outside the harbour and was not very interesting. The impression I got was that they were not that interested in the paying customer and were keener to get it over with to have to rest of the day off. The... More

I tried snorkeling off one of the beaches and was disappointed so I paid to be part of a group Orca was taking offshore. The bonus to the trip was seeing the route the Birdmen ran and the cliff they climbed down then up in their competition. We also had a burial cave pointed out to us. We went snorkeling... More

Had a great time, first time diving, the experience, photos and explanations in English were all great. The turtle I swam with was something I'll never forget. You would be crazy not to do this.

Dive centre were very friendly and knowledgable. They were happy to accommodate our bookings the day before the dive. They also arrange a trip out to the small pinnacles/island to the left as you look out to sea. The vis and fish life were average but well worth a couple of dives during your trip in my opinion (I've done... More

My wife and I booked the "baptism" scuba course and couldn't have been more pleased. Cost around $70 for about two hour experience and a TON of photos (over 50ish) on a CD for us to keep. After a 30 minute explanation in wonderful English, allowing all of our questions, we got fitted for suits and fins and whatnot and... More

I am a beginner (passed the open water but only half a dozen dives) and they helped me improve by first watching me, then helping me get better by both giving advice and challenge me. They are very professional and safety oriented. They are always watching you but without being over protective or limitative. The briefing before each dive is... More
