Craig Hipson

Owner /Manager

Craig took over Dive Kapiti from its previous owner in 2014. Craig’s love of diving is infectious, and if you are lucky enough to go out on a dive with Craig, you can be assured you will hooked too!

In fact Craig only started diving in 2013, and pictured above is his first Crayfish catch – a whopping 3.5kgs! Just to prove what is achievable for the new enthusiast.
