Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very friendly shop stocked with everything you could possibly need for scuba diving. I love going in here to get my air fills, they always have useful information about where is best to go diving, weather updates through the day to plan around, and every month there is a free social night to listen to interesting talks and chat with other divers over the BBQ. Before a lot of my weekend dives I phone the shop first to talk it over with them just in case there is somewhere with better vis.
I got all my gear here as well as lots of extra bits and pieces to make my gear work better for me. They take their time making sure that everything fits right and don't rush into the sale. I got to sit down with a cup of tea and talk about what kind of diving I am planning to do, so what gear would be best. I have gone on a few trips and found them to be very fun as well as a huge focus on safety.

I originally went to NZSA on the recommendation from a friend. They certainly live up to the reputation for being professional and the best diving establishment in Wellington.
I kept diving with them mainly because they share my enthusiasm for diving. There will always be someone keen to join me for a dive. I know that there will always be someone going out for a dive on Tuesday nights and all I have to do is turn up.
The staff are very knowledgeable, have all the skills and are approachable and friendly. They encourage me develop and extend my knowledge. They help me to do so by suggesting the best courses for me and through the monthly crew nights.
When I did my PADI divemaster course, I knew that I was learning from the best and so my knowledge and skills likely to be better for it. I had loads of fun and can’t wait to do my next course. There were only two of us on the course and so I got the individual attention that I wouldn’t receive elsewhere.
Crew nights gave me an opportunity to talk to other divers in a (dry) social situation and a chance to meet other enthusiasts and maybe get some new diving buddies. The talks are always really interesting and help me to broaden my knowledge about subjects related to diving.
NZSA also encouraged me to get involved. They offer opportunities to do things that are slightly out of the ordinary such as drift diving in Taupo, and things to help the community and environment like cleaning the Hikitia.
When I was in New Zealand I have made some of my most valuable friends at NZSA (who I am still in touch with) because they’re all as passionate about the sport as I am.
Thank you Tony and the gang.
