Cressi Sub logo

We use quality scuba dive gear from different manufacturers. Our BCD’s are Cressi Sub Aquapro 5 and our regulators are Cressi AC2 XS2. Our fins are Mares, Seac Sub, Technisub and Gull. We use different mask models from IST, Scubapro, Mares, Seac Sub and Atlantis. We have different wetsuits – 3 mm shorties and 5 mm shorties, as well as some 3 mm and 5 mm long wetsuits (if you are visiting Rarotonga over the winter months and you know you get cold easily, you may want to bring your own long, thicker wetsuit).

Our dive tanks are aluminium Catalina 80 cft (11.1 litre) cylinders with either INT or DIN valves. Adventure Cook Islands is a hydrostatic cylinder testing facility and our dive cylinders are tested and in date. We use a Coltri MCH-13 compressor to fill our scuba cylinders to 200 bar (2900 PSI). All our dive gear is serviced regularly and kept in very good condition. In addition, our qualified service technicians can service dive gear from most major equipment manufacturers.
