I had bought a Topdive pass and dived with them in Moorea (Intercontinental), Bora Bora (Maikai), Rangiroa, Fakarava North and Tahiti Nui (Intercontinental), in November/December 2015. I will review each one separately as my experience varied from average to excellent. Great dive centre with really nice staff. Awesome diving. My regulator stopped working on the first day. Particular thanks is... More

We saw: lots of grey sharks, black tip sharks, white tip sharks, hammerhead, lemon shark, dolphins, manta ray, eagle rays, african pompanos, dogtooth tuna, Napoleon fish, lots of schooling fish, turtle, bluefin trevally.

I have admittedly not had as many dives as many of the people who have commented on this company, but I can safely say that in my experience, this was the single best dive of my life. We (myself and 2 others from my cruise ship) dove Tiputa pass with Yannick. We started on the ocean side (dolphins surfaced and... More

After taking a tender to the pier, Top Dive picks you up in a van and drives to their shop. It took about 5 minutes to get there. Finished the paperwork, got the equipment I needed, they gave us the dive profile for the first dive. They had all the equipment loaded in their boat. They handled all that themselves.... More

He described our adventure: Drift snorkel Tiputa Pass once, search for dolphins, then snorkel the "Aquarium". The drift was really cool: With Claudio leading,... More

Nice outfit. Nico is excellent divemaster. One of the best I have ever seen and I am an instructor with over 1000 dives. Boats may be a little crouded but broken into groups of six divers or less (each with a dive master) and each dropped separately it works. Only do two sites, both Passes but as the current changes...

Very well organized, a lot of routine and very disciplined. The diveguides and everyone of the crew are very helpful and know what they're doing. Altough the base is quite big and sometimes full of divers they never seem to be in a rush...that's what made every dive safe and very diverse. We had dolphins, lot of sharks and turtles... More

It is a paradise for any diver. Quite dives with plenty of life to see or fast one with the current. We saw so many things it is not possible to tell in just a review. If you are a diver just go in and the team is absolutely great and friendly !
