We came to Bora Bora for our honeymoon and decided to obtain our PADI Open Water Diver certification with Bora Diving Center. Our instructor was Laurent. He did a fantastic job and took excellent care of us. The continuous task repetition and his shared experience as a cave diver helped us to really feel safe along our dives and establish... More

I have tried many center in Bora and BDC is by far the best one. Dan is the soul of BDC and knows the under world of Bora like is back pocket. Amazing diver, Dan can make you laugh while keeping it extremely professional under water. You will want to see what BDC have to offer, from the Ray manta,... More

Booked our dives with Dan prior to our arrival on Bora Bora. We stayed at the Four Seasons and Dan picked us up there. He was very accommodating- for example: I prefer dives in about 50-60 feet of water and he as on top of that. I had trouble with water in my mask and he looked at me and... More

The owner was careful and attentive and gave us a lift to his shop and back to the tender area after the dives and directed us down a beautiful beach his shop is on but initially we had to ask on the dock after getting off the tender where the dive boat and meeting place was. The dives were nice... More

I did four dives in two days with them, and their team (which is actually a family) made me feel comfortable and part of their family. An amazing service level and an amazing experience. Very different experience from their main competitor, where people are not friendly.

We went out for 4 dives over two days. It was an excellent experience. We are only recently certified, and the guides were very helpful with tips for moving and breathing more easily. They provided equipment and set it up for us, helped us in and out of the water, led us through the site. They picked us up and... More

Bora Diving Center made our honeymoon in Bora Bora that much better! We dealt mainly with Dan (we called him Jack because he looks like Jack Nicholson) and Jean-Pasquell (JP). We went on 5 dives while we were there and they were all exquisite in their own way. The boat was always prompt to pick us up at the Hilton... More

One of the best dives i did. The staff was friendly. We did a reef dive and marine life is very rich. I was excited to see eagle rays. I wanted to do shark dive but we didn't manage to do it on the day we were there. Some other time....

David and Denny set up a cage of fish to allure sharks before we jumped into the water. It felt amazing when you jumped into sharks directly (don't worry, they dislike getting close to humans). We also saw a manta, and David showed us all kinds of amazing stuffs that would be ignored by most dive guides (sea cucumber stomachs,... More

We went for a snorkeling and diving morning, and to place a visit to the corral reef and the sharks. I don´t know if it ´s safe to swim with a 2 meter shark but i think not. With the adrenaline we go inside the water but then we start thinking that would be good to have a cage. Nevertheless... More
