We dove the South Pass and the North Reef as we are newly certified. The office and the dive masters were great and accommodating.

The dives in French Polynesia are electrifying! Each dive is so unpredictable and so different from the previous one! I dove with TOPDIVE in Rangiroa, Fakarava, Bora Bora, Moorea and Tahiti. I would rank Fakarava as #2 of all five, after Rangiroa. In Fakarava it is a bit difficult to communicate with the people and although there we wanted to... More

We hesitantly decided to go with Topdive in Fakarava for our diving after we were disappointed with our contact with Dive Spirit, and Fakarava Diving Center had no availability. Normally we tend to go with the smaller, local dive shops in FP to avoid the large groups. We were staying in the north (Havaiki Pearl Guest House), and so we... More

We returned to TOPDIVE Fakarava after a two year absence and I can honestly say that the seven days diving we did there were the best dives ever in my 35 years of diving. This is due mainly to the wonderful staff of TOPDIVE Fakarava, David, Fanny, Manu and Irene, who in my opinion are the best dive center team... More

While on our honeymoon, my husband and I did 6 dives in the South Pass with TopDive. Laurent was our Dive Master, and he did a great job! It was my first time diving (ever!) that wasn't a training class, and he did a great job both making me feel comfortable and keeping things interesting enough for the other, more... More

Fantastic dives! So may fishes and such a beauty there! The dive masters are very good professionals, very kind and careful. Free nitrox is provided to all by TOPDIVE. This is extra in the other countries if provided at all. I will be back for diving with TOPDIVE in Fakarava although the travel to this place is long and expensive... More

Awesome, Awesome, AWESOME! Did I mention it was awesome? Top marks for Top Dive. My wife and I did six dives in the the south pass and loved every one of them. Our Dive Master, Laurent, was laid back and relaxed....and on the the ball. The equipment was fine, we had no trouble. Top Dive is a darned good deal.... More
