Welcome to Dive HQ

Dive HQ is your first stop when it comes to SCUBA diving with conveniently located dive stores throughout New Zealand. We are the leading dive retailer of diving, snorkelling and spearfishing products in New Zealand. We provide PADI diver training from the PADI Open Water Diver Course through to becoming a professional SCUBA Diving Instructor. All of our stores are PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centres, offering the highest standard of diver training and we are accredited by Worksafe NZ to deliver Adventure Activities.

Whether you want to explore the underwater world, take your first breath from a regulator, or launch into an exciting new career in the dive industry, we will make your dreams become a reality. As we are SCUBA professionals we teach and guide you every step of the way. Dive HQ stores can be found around NZ and therefore we can show you the best dive sites New Zealand has to offer and help you plan or lead you on your next overseas dive trip.

When Dive HQ stores aren't in the water they are compiling products for the Dive HQ Catalogue and shop shelves. We stand behind the products we sell and aim to give SCUBA divers the best value for money no matter what their budget is. We speak SCUBA, spearfishing and snorkelling so choose your closest Dive HQ store for expert advice and great prices on the many products we sell. We offer a full range of quality diving equipment including regulators, BCD’s, wetsuits, masks, snorkel, fins and accessories for snorkelling and water sport activities. Dive HQ staff have the knowledge and expertise to help you find the right products that will enhance your experience in the water because “we are the underwater experts”...
