I could not be more pleased with the way I was able to complete my open water PADI training in Bora Bora. The instruction was excellent and diving equipment provided worked very well. Scheduled pickup times were honored and I would recommend this to all who are looking to get certified.

I'm an experienced diver and bought an inter- island dive packet from Bora Diving. I was traveling aboard the cruise ship Holland America as the lecturer on Marine Biology. Dan - our dive master, repeatedly grabbed living coral. Between dives I asked, trying to pose it as a question, "Shouldn't not touch live coral?" No," he said "It is not... More

I was really nervous about going out diving for the first time, however we were lucky to get Yvan who was really patient and had some great tips on how not to panic when under water! It was very professionally run and I felt the dives were tailored to the divers. I would definitely recommend this dive business to anyone... More

We dove two days with the Bora Diving Center and both days were great! They picked us up and dropped us back at our hotel The team is really laid back, we had a "island time" style dive. The first day with BDC we went to two locations one on the exterior and one on the interior. We saw spotted... More

These guys know what they are doing, we were lucky to get the "boss" Yvan diving with us, he was very patient with first time divers, made us feel secure and relaxed. Very professionally run business that caters for everyones level of experience. Will Definitely return for another dive with them again.

Great company. I had a lot of fun with these guys. Nicolas is the best to dive with. He doesn't give you the "are you okay" symbol 100 times. He appreciates and respects your experience and intelligence. And, he understands NAUI divers, which are typically far more experienced and have been diving for much longer than others, so we appreciated... More

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
