We had a fun weekend diving with RAD on Pelorus island, 5 dives over 2 days, bush camping in the island watching whales, lots of food, and nice easy going crew. This is not for someone who wants to be pampered though.

The team at RAD have looked after us now on several courses and trips, very professional family run business. We will continue to visit these guys as the service, help and knowledge has made us all want to keep coming back.

The dive instructors, were completely unprofessional, they did not check the group were with them. They gave us broken equipment and boat was completely overloaded. I would suggest finding a better quality shop.

Saw a lot of different corals, fish and invertebrates. The staff was very helpful and patient. The night we spent in tents on Pelorus island, where we also had a barbecue. A great dive trip :D
