We have found that several things make our trips memorable: where you stay, where you eat, what you do, and the people you meet. I booked a dive trip with Dan in Dec 2014 and had a blast. He is funny, smart and he knows the local water. I was given double the time underwater that he promised, and we... More

We did a 2 tank dive excursion with Dan. My second dive after certification. It was a fabulous experience. Both dives went very well, Dan took us out and showed us all the beauty of the area. It was great.

My wife and I traveled to Bora Bora for the last leg of our honeymoon and I wanted to hopefully complete my certification. I read reviews and selected Bora Diving Center through our resort concierge and spoke with Yvan. He was great to meet and such a wonderful instructor! They didn't pack divers on the boat to get paid. Each... More

My husband and I recently experienced our first scuba diving adventure with Nicholas and Dan, our diver guide and videographer respectively. I was apprehensive but determined. Nicholas was gently patient, encouraging and supportive in his instruction and guidance with me allowing me to become comfortable and feel secure. Wow - then the the beauties of the underwater world exploded for... More

My first scuba diving experience can only be described as the "phenomenal made magical". The phenomena of underwater life was staggering and transition to the magical was made possible by Nicholas and Dan who gently led my precious wife and I, as somewhat apprehensive novices, below the surface of the tropical lagoon to witness an environment of beautiful diversity and...

I found Bora Diving Center though Trip Advisor and booked a introductory dive after reading all of the positive reviews. My husband is not certified and though I am, I haven't dove in quite some time. The intro course was perfect for both of us. Yvan (and least I hope it was Yvan), picked us up from the Sofitel and...

I had a great time diving with them! They picked me up at the Hilton Bora Bora and we did a reef and drift dive. The staff was great. Gave tea and cookies in-between dives. While we were headed to the dive site, another company left a diver in the water!!! I am not kidding. The diver was freaking out... More

My wife and I wanted to dive in Bora Bora. She hadn't dove in over five years so they suggested a refresher dive in the afternoon. The dive master was very helpful with getting her confidence back up and going over the necessary safety needs. We had a great dive, saw some spotted eagle rays and many fish. The next... More

The diving was good. Not quite the colors I was expecting. With that said, we found a spot with several large lemon sharks and then another spot with quite a few eagle rays that swam all around us. The boat was a little crowded, probably the biggest negative.

I am embarrassed that this has taken me so long to write this review. I am finally completing my photo book from our WONDERFUL trip to Bora Bora and I felt I needed to write a review even though we were there almost six months ago. I think the major highlight of our stay in Bora Bora was our scuba... More
