We were able to tag along with the divers and snorkel with Mantas which was great. Also snorkeled the reef near the Pass whiles divers were in Pass itself - very pristine and beautiful. Wish there were more offerings like this for snorkelers on Tikehau.

Top Dive Tikehau is an excellent dive center with phenomenal instructors. They are conveniently located at the Pearl Beach Resort in Tikehau and great to work with. Aside from the fact that the dive sites are amazing in Tikehau, it is the individuals running things that really make this place what it is. A huge thank you to Vincent especially... More

Topdive in Tikehau was a great experience. What I liked was the professionalism of the dive team. Excellent briefing on the dive sites. I was fortunate to up to three Silver Tip Sharks diving the pass. Thank you Vincent and Antoinette for providing a casual and exciting diving experience!

Thank you Antoinette, Vincent, and the rest of the team for everything. My non-diving wife and I went out on the boat with them 6 days in a row, and we loved every minute. They picked us up each morning at our resort, as we did not stay at the Pearl where the dive shop is. I rented dive gear,... More

This rating is for Topdive overall. We have got certified and dived with Topdive at Moorea, Bora Bora, Rangiroa and Tikehau. Topdive has consistently a great crew who is knowledgeable, respectful, and comforting for beginners. Their equipment is proper, not too worn out, and they have nice boats to take you to sites. They are also conveniently located across the... More

Outstanding experience with Top Dive in Tikehau, very professional and knowledgeable staff. We did 2 dives, one at the Manta Rays spot and the other one in Tikehau pass, which is extremely rich, sharks, barracudas, Napoleon and where the coral is in perfect condition...

My husband and I were newly weds and went to The Pearl Resort in Tikehau for our Honeymoon. We met the divemasters Antoinette and Vince when they docked their boat every morning at the resort. We decided to sign up for the intro dive course and ended up loving it so much! We ended up becoming open water PADI certified.... More

Depends on time of year, weather etc.etc. and past experiences. Most people in recent times commented on declining fish numbers and how poor the recent weather has been. Poor debriefing on what and where to see the best sea life.

Great, great company and amazing instructors, Antoinette and Vincent. We dove only one day, two dives in our short stay. But the water is insane. The visibility at the Old Pearl Farm wasn't amazing for the manta rays, but it was good. The pass was unbelievable. The visibility was better than I've seen out of water many times. We saw... More

We did a couple of dives in Tikehau and they were outstanding. Don't waste your time with the Manta Ray dive that you have the option of doing. Instead, do your dives at the pass. The visibility, number of sea creatures and variety of what we saw were all amazing. It was also cool, because when we went out, there... More
