Had a great week at Lord Howe, including a 2-dive booking with Howea (Brian & Ellice) and a 3-dive snorkel trip with Peter. The scuba dives were offshore on the Admiralty Islands and Malabar cliffs, and were really good dives - interesting topography, decent coral, good fish life. The staff were all really knowledgeable locals, friendly and professional, and I... More

Thank you Brian and gang for a great diving trip. Unfortunately the weather was not 100% in our flavour to dive Balls BUT we were not disappointed. The staff are very friendly and just happy to be there. The island overall is a great place to visit. It is also great for hiking (all levels) and bird life. Next time... More

Thanks heaps to Brian, Petra and crew from Howea Divers. Totally enjoyed the weeks diving around Lord Howe Island and blown away by the diving options. From dives around the Lagoon over to Malabar and the Admiralty Islands there is something for everyone. The weather did not play nicely for Balls Pyramid ... maybe next time. Great service and safe... More

The whole team at Howea is fantastic. Brian had already given us a very good impression by being very efficient in communicating with my husband by email, and also very accommodating in changing dates. On 25th October Peter, the dive master, and Petra, dive master in training, took us out to Malabar where we had a spectacular dive experience: the... More

I really enjoyed spending time with Brian, Pete and the friendly staff who work with Howea Divers. Not a scuba diver myself however i wanted to take sound recordings in the outer reef areas as well as in the Lagoon Nothing was a problem for them and they were all very generous with their time

Having not dived for 2 years since getting our open water qualification, we felt completely at ease with Brian and his team. Jade, Dan and Zoe were all excellent guides and helped us remember all the skills we needed. Brian was a very considerate and skilled skipper and made our trips on the boat very pleasant. We would highly recommend... More

I went for my open water diver course with the help of the amazing instructor Jade, also with the encouragement of Dan & Brian. Not only did I learn an awesome skill for life ahead, I met great friends along the way. I saw some amazing coral and fish and it's something I'll never forget. I highly recommend howea divers...

Did 8 dives with Howea, all the dives were great with the dive sights chosen on the day to ensure the best diving for the weather conditions. The staff were excellent and the dive boat was set up for a max 10 divers so ensured only small groups. We were able to decide on the day is we wanted to... More

Thank you for your review and for choosing to dive with Howea. It was a pleasure to dive with all of you and hope to see you back again in the future. We apologise for the odd sticky BCD inflator, we have since tagged out and serviced the gear. It sure does get a work out over our Summer season!... More

Thanks everyone for so great snorkelling and an amazing experience both above and below the water at Lord Howe. The water was crystal clear and the quality of the coral and fish life was beyond my expectations. Cheers!

Thanks for your review. Yes, snorkelling the outer reefs of Malabar is a 'must-do' on LHI. Both below the surface and above are a magical sight and a dive we never get tired of. We hope to see you back on the island in the future. Brian More
