About Us

Go Dive Pacific is based in Picton, the gateway to the South island and the beautiful Marlborough Sounds.

With over 1500kms of protected Sounds, Islands and Capes we can boast more dive days per year than any other region in New Zealand.

Go Dive Pacific has over 35 years of operating dive tours and training in the region, we know the dive sites and wrecks like no other. Our dive lodge in Port Gore is setup for both the recreational and technical diver and gives us easy access to the Mikhail Lermontov, one of the world’s great wreck dives, as well as other historical wrecks sites and fantastic reef dives only we can reach with our specially designed dive vessel XR. XR is the only dive vessel in New Zealand fitted with a diver lift and provides luxurious diving opportunities.

Our sister company Go Dive NZ, also based in Picton offers local tours in Queen Charlotte Sound, entry level diver training and is a fully serviced retail facility, Go Dive NZ also act as a booking agent and local base for our 24 hour Lermontov tours. Both companies are owner operated by passionate divers.

Unlike other operators in well known dive regions we specialise in small guided tours and charters with a ratio of up to four guests/students to one professional dive guide and a maximum of 8 guests per tour group. This allows us to spend more time with our clients and to maximise their experience both in and out of the water.

Go Dive Pacific also offer scheduled group tours to carefully selected regions outside the Marlborough region that offer unique diving opportunities, using selected tour operators who hold the same values as us. Fiordland, Solomon Islands, White Island and just a few of the various locations around NZ that we do trips to, and all offer dive-able wrecks and reefs for an experience to never forget.
