Amazing experience. Previously, I had never dived, but thanks to good pre-dive briefing, I was completely calm and ready for the first dive of your life. The instructor was very friendly and helpful.

The Instructors are good and ready to giuve information about diving sites, what to see, etc; the equipments and boat are good. It is also possible to have a copy of pictures/movie of your dive. It is very easy to get to the diving center.

I Loved it that was the best activity of our honeymoon. They gave us all the equipment and we had a smile on our faces the whole time.

I had not really heard anything about the quality of diving in Bora Bora. I've done most of my diving in the Cayman Islands where there is abundant coral and fish of all species. The diving in Bora Bora is very different. I was amazed at the close encounters I had with multiple large Manta Rays and Reef Sharks. A... More

Excellent company ethos. Picked up from our hotel and taken to the dive shop for fitting and then off to pick up clients en-route to two dive sites. Whilst picking up clients, had the opportunity to see the whole island which was a bonus. Well maintained equipment and all in good working order. Danny at the helm was entertaining and... More

While on Bora Bora, my husband and I decided to do our dives with Bora Diving Center. They have a comprehensive website and Yvan, the owner, responds quickly. Although I'm certified, my husband is not, so we went on two intro dives with Dan the first day and Yvan the second day. Both times, it was a lot of fun... More

The two guys, Yvan, and Dan (both French) are hilariously funny. Always quick to drop a joke. If you're a female, be prepared to be hit on. It's nothing serious, it's all in a joking manner, but i hope your significant other is not the jealous type. As i said, it's all in fun and they make it enjoyable. They... More

Fantastic trip! My partner and I did ten dives with Bora Diving after getting certified in Fiji. We literally spent most of our time during the day underwater and thoroughly enjoyed every reef we visited. Highlights included seeing majestic manta rays within arm's reach and seeing lemon and black tip sharks up close. And if you're up for it, go... More
