In October 2014, six of us arrived with fair expectations. Neil and his crew and the wreck diving far surpassed what we had hoped to find. Interesting (happily!) that he still has the same traits as the 2005 post below. While four of us were OC, the other two JJ-CCR divers talked of good times and enjoyable dives. Neil ensured the mix of CC/CCR divers all got memorable experiences. Heading back this October! Really great wreck diving; fully recommend the operator and the wrecks.

I rented a couple of tanks from Tulagi, but did my diving off the Bilikiki. Neil was great with plenty of emails to coordinate and was great coming through in a pinch when mis-communication between us resulted in not having the right fill adaptor. Neil rented me 2 Faber 3ltr tanks that I used in my Optima. We took care of all the logistics before I arrived, the tanks were waiting for me when I arrived and Bilikiki took care of getting them back. It could not have been more painless. I left behind for Neil my spare EAC.

I ran into a KISS RB diver while waiting for the plane. Heard great stories of the previous weeks dives with Neil using Tugali's boat. Sounded like a great place for RB divers. He even had helium. I wish I had known that, a few cubic feet would have been nice instead of being narc'd off by A$$ on my deep dive.

Definitely the best equipped dive shop in the South Pacific - "Neil, you happen to have a spare R22 02 sensor?" "Yes - 3. Look in the storage on the back of the work bench. Third row up - 15 drawers over from the left". And there they are - just as he said - Amazing!!

Also Neil is a super guy. Laid back, customer focused, but what we like best - he's a wrecker just like us!!

Dive Tulagi are well equiped to handle techie OC and RB. Gas booster got well used while I was there and Neil keeps Sofnolime / Spherasob in stock, plenty of O2 and Helium.

All the guides and boat crews are used to providing the service a techie diver needs in the tropics.

I'll be going back (sorry Neil!)
