Super helpful, safe and fun! Our first really good dive after certification and we got to see sharks and amazingly huge manta rays!

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

I just got back from Bora Bora a few weeks ago and did my open water dives with this fun group of people. I felt very comfortable going into my first open water experience. The team is fun and they take you to some great dive spots! We saw sharks, rays and amazing coral. Thanks again! Hope to be back... More

I did an introductory dive through Bora Diving and it was an amazing experience. The dive master had a great balance of humour/fun and safety/seriousness when it came to the dive. As it was my first time, I was apprehensive but he made the trip to our spot very calm and light hearted, and during the safety demonstration and description... More

Some sharks, tons of fish, huge Manta Rays, several Eagle Rays, barracuda, beautiful coral walls and warm clear water. Their Catamaran is... More

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
