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

I had a great experience at Orca, I did 4 excellent and special dives. Visibility was awesome and the sites were well chosen. The guides were really cool to me and very friendly. I liked the way they gave the briefings prior to each dive with heaps of details. Very professional place and staff. Be ready to wait for days... More

We were hoping to do a bunch of diving on our trip to Easter Island, but the weather just didnt corporate. We only ended up on a single dive that was just barely out of the harbor during our 5 day stay on the island. The single dive was a good taste of what is obviously an incredibly unique place....

Over our stay we rented surfboards for $15 and did the introduction dive with Orca. My wife and I both speak a little Spanish, but not nearly enough to understand all of the things involved with diving and Orca had several people that were fluent in English that gave excellent instruction. The dive itself was incredible. About 100 foot visibility... More

Very well organized and happy dive masters. Was diving 2 dives on february 11, 2016. Excellent diving although poor marine live due to lack of plankton but all divers know this fact.

My son and I visited over Christmas 2015. We visited the shop and signed up for four dives. We got in three; one was canceled due to weather. The first dive was in the harbor area where we dove on some reefs and then on the maoi head that is there (it is not a real one). I thought the... More

Very professional. Gave a great introductory dive - spent about 15-20 minutes going through the equipment and underwater signals before heading out to the reef just a short way away. I think I was underwater for about 40 minutes and it was amazing. Saw so many different types of fishes and a turtle which was a huge bonus! And they... More
