I dove with Topdive for 6 days. The staff was really nice and laid-back, I liked them. I was working out of their little dive shop which is not at the Kia Ora hotel. The hotel dives hop was crowded and much more corporate so I was happy with the location that I came to each day. Audrey and Nicolas... More

My wife (Advanced) and me (Rescue) did 15 dives each with Top Dive. We dived with Chris, Julien, Cissou, Daphne and Nico. All of them were extremely helpful and knowledgeable and had exactly the right balance between being safe and being relaxed. Despite not getting the "right" current apart from the first day (they can't control that!) the diving was... More

Started my certification dives with TOPDIVE Rangiroa! Also helped me coordinate and find out who to talk to when I needed to have some dives reimbursed due to health problems of my fiance. He wasn't able to clear his ears due to an undiagnosed ear infection so didn't complete our first dive and instead snorkled above the reef at Tiputa?... More

We did 15 dives over five days here in March/April 2015. Most were with Dive Master Cissou. The highlights of the week were our interactions with Dolphins. Cissou had a knack for attracting them in close. One adult female even came in for an "interspecies massage" allowing us to touch her sides and fins all the while playing around us.... More

We did 2 dives on a day off a cruise ship. Both were incredible in all aspects. Water easily > 150 feet visibility. Huge variety and numbers of pretty much all species of fish that we saw across French Polynesia. Great divemaster. Incredible videos of a huge school of great barracuda - must have been >> 500 of them swimming... More

The dive master that did the majority of our dives was so knowledgeable about everywhere we went. Even the timing. One morning he lays out the dive plan and says we should hurry a little to catch the dolphins. Not even 5 miutes out there and we came across a school of barracudas with the dolphins playing around them. The... More

Top dive Rangiroa is all professional and happy company. Dives are challenging-current is very strong.In two days I had four dives,and each was amazing.Weather was perfect. Tiputa Pass diving is very special;full of marine life-Dolphins, Sharks,Barracudas,big Mantas and many many reef fish. Visibility was good. Thanks Top Dive for Amazing time. !!!!!!!!

I knew after our experience with Top Dive in Bora Bora and staying at Le Meridien that there were big shoes to fill. I am writing this review from the perspective of myself and fiancé who had slightly different impressions. I have over 100 dives and consider myself an intermediate diver and he is an advanced certified diver. I only... More

First the basics: because "Rangy" is a plane ride from any hospital, TopDive only does nitrox oxygen-enhanced tanks for greater safety avoiding decompression issues. This was news to me, so we got educated with an introductory dive and got certified. What a difference! After two dives we were very energized for the rest of the day, whereas our "air" dives...

We chose Top Dive over the other dive companies without remorse. They are a large company with branches throughout most of French Polynesia. We dove with them on two separate days with 3 different dive guides and had a wonderful time with each dive and guide. I was a bit nervous at the beginning of each dive because it was... More
