We had booked a dive with this company on November 2 in Rangiroa and we had confirmed that they would meet our cruise ship at the pier when it arrived. We had emailed them the name of the ship and the arrival time and were told they would meet us at 9:30 am. Unfortunately, no one showed up although we... More

This dive shop is great as it is only a short boat ride from Tiputa Pass and only 20 minutes to Avatoru Pass. The shop is well organized and gives you a chance to dive with each of the divemasters. I would certainly recommend Pitou, Sinbad, Cannelle, and Nini. It is a busy shop. So it is a good idea... More

I have to say only good things about this place. But the most important one, very professional and very safe. Charming staff. All of them. Great prices!!! and if you are lucky you take with you the best photographer underwater.

Spent a week in Rangiroa as a newly certified diver. Went diving with most of the guides, and they had me do a test dive in the lagoon to ensure I was capable and had the skillset required to handle any dives out in open water. The entire staff is friendly, and I always felt they had a watchful eye... More

Six passengers is one of the five best dive operations I have used anywhere. The dive guides/masters are incredibly knowledgeable about the area and know what to look for and when. Divers are separated into groups depending upon experience and qualifications. This was very good for me and my wife who are both dive masters. We were in a group... More

The shop was founded from an Italian who is still in charge with two other guys. The Italian owner is specialist on HD videos which you can buy (you can choose 2 videos with music which are on one DVD for a price of around EUR 160,--). There are around 6 or even more dive guides and they have around... More

The six passengers beats topdive hands down! We dove with them for 6 days in May of 2014, and were extremely pleased. The pass is very close to the shop and the boats are well maintained. We met and dove with 2 of the owners, which I believe makes a difference in how a dive operation is run. They were... More

When people go to a dive destination they tend to dive with one company, often recommended by their hotel, and--provided nothing goes wrong-- dive with that same company the entire time. This tendency does inherently limit one's perspective on the quality and value provided by the one company. How can you compare dive shops (or anything) when you only try... More

The Six Passengers was recommended to us by Alain, our host from Pension Bounty and we had a great experience. One of us had had a terrible experience in the past with diving, and we explained it to our instructor, so she was extra careful and patient. We like it so much, we came back for another dive, even though... More

Simply Mind Blowing. Close interaction with Dolphins and the dive is spectacular - It literally feels like your flying underwater. The Six Pasengers are a great dive company super friendly, helpful and professional. Its a must!
