It was back in October 2010 that we went diving with Bora Diving Center. We emailed them upfront to book and confirm the trip. The morning we were picked up by Sarah at out hotel exactly on time. Once at the diveshop we immediately felt the good vibe. The crew is hilarious and still very professional. That is a very... More

We did 2 dives with Bora Diving while on a Princess Cruise in French Polynesia. While the dives were great, and we saw lemon sharks, and manta rays, Bora Diving needs to tighten up their operation. I have been fighting with whether to give them 3 or 4 stars, but am giving them 4 stars, because in the long run... More

We came across this dive company by chance when we booked an excursion through our cruise ship, the Pacific Princess. The instructors were very professional and our equipment was ready and waiting for us when we got off the ship. They clearly love their jobs and we were put at ease throughout the 2 tank trip. The diving was fairly... More

My husband and I went diving with Thierry Cadeau, diving instructor and owner of the center, an absolutely great guy. The dive center is beautiful, clean and very well organized; the diving equipment is new, clean and well maintained. The boats are in good condition, efficient, safe, spot on. The service is professional, the briefings are complete and informative, safety... More

We did two trips (4 dives) with the guys from Bora Diving. Our first dive was with Dan and our second was with JP. They both cracked us up while taking us to some great spots around Bora Bora. Despite the wisecracks, their professionalism never faltered (unlike the gas on the boat on the way to the center in the... More

My wife and I did two saltwater dives with this establishment. Dan was fantastic in making us feel comfortable and safe. The whole crew actually was easy to get along with and we never felt rushed during the preparation for our dives. They also made a cool video of the dive that we did. Big thanks to Bora Diving Center... More

This is long overdue and that I apologize to the team for the delay! My husband and I had the pleasure of spending time on Bora Bora in the last twelve months. We were very excited about the thought of diving in these beautiful waters! What we didn't know is we happen to have picked the very best team to... More

Loved that the captain allowed play time w/ the dolphins who showed up to escort us to our dive site - not every charter does. I've been on others who don't even slow the boat for photos. These guys circled around enticing the dolphins to stay with us. Dive Master JP kept it professional & safe but super fun right... More
