About Us

Here at Daves' Diving, fantastic diving along the entire coastline of Kaikoura is our specialty. Kaikoura is a very special place, with a remarkable level of biodiversity, our cold water diving is some of the coolest around (pun intended). Join us to experience kelp forests, octopus, stingray, spectacular biodiversity and so much more. Daves' Diving was founded in 2021 by a couple of Daves who love to dive! Sounds about right eh? We are a family run operation and can provide a truly personalized experience.
