Very disappointed with our experience with Top Dive. The service was a bit cold. We sent in paperwork with PADI numbers, experience levels, and equipment sizes. Once we were taken to the dive shop they gave us a lecture about how we didn't send it in and seemed upset that they had to take time for us to fill out... More

As many other reviewers stated, there doesn't seem to be a lot of options among dive operators in Bora Bora. When I contacted our hotel, it sounded as if this organization was the only option. I was not happy at all with the first of the three days I booked and was very close to canceling my remaining two days... More

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. Since Bora Bora attracts the majority of the visitors of French Polynesia, it is normal that this is reflected in the diving activities. There is though one dive that... More

We booked with TopDive through our concierge at the St. Regis. Our guide was Frederic and he took us on an amazing dive. The first was just past the breakers where we swam with the lemon sharks in the reef as it sloped down. That was very cool, but the best was the second dive in the lagoon near the... More

We stayed at Kia Ora and scheduled our dives with Top Dive, best choise! We had amazing dives, my friend did a reef dive and the Tiputa pass dive, which was amazing, with many dolphins and sharks. I saw big groups of fish surrounding us, with bigger fish hunting them. Great sightings with lots of tropical fish. The guidance at... More

Last April we visited the Tahitian Islands and I planned to have 2 dives with Top Dive in each of the following islands: Moorea, Bora Bora and Rangiroa. All of us were extremelly disappointed in the dives in Bora Bora. The coral was all dead and there was practically no sea life. We were told after the dives that a... More

The first dive was very bland. saw no rays as expected. Sun on the second dive, a current dive, ok , saw 2 lemon rays. The next day we went snorkeling with the lemon sharks and the manta rays--much better than the dives.

We had two excellent dives with TopDive in Bora Bora. The dive shop was excellent--right next to the Yacht Club. The equipment, facilities and boat were very much up to par. The dive in the lagoon, where the visibility was lower the and coral affected by a lot of silt, was not as good as the dive outside the lagoon.

The dive instructors were awesome, very helpful and fun. We did an awesome honeymoon dive and did another two dives afterwards. The instructors were great and very helpful for a new diver. The boat ride out was one of the best parts of the trip and we saw lots of sharks, eels, fishes. All very safe. We had videos made... More
