Truly the bluest dive I've ever done. The colour seemed almost photoshopped! Easily 30m visibility. Quite amazing. And the underwater Moai is a bit of fun too - make sure you have an underwater camera of some kind!
As I dived Christmas Eve and it was the only day I could dive due to flights, I had no choice but to go with Atariki, due to everywhere being full. I paid 40,000pesos per dive (~$80aud/dive), and they were 5-10,000 pesos more than every other place I visited. Being Christmas Eve and due to my desperation I couldn't really negotiate though. In saying this, their equipment was fine, and they were gracious enough to give me a new tank altogether when I told them my o-ring was old and the air was leaking. Be aware they have a "transbank" sign on the window to imply they take card, but their machine appears to be nonexistent/permanently broken.. So be prepared to pay in cash. The plus side of not being on of the two top rated dive centers on trip advisor Meant that I was one of two divers that day. This meant for longer dives, quicker starts and less hassle and wait for pictures with the Moai - can't complain!
Either way, if you dive and you're in Easter Island - tick it off your list!!
