We had a beginners dive with DAN THE MAN and loved it so much we booked a shark tour for the next day! We could not ask for better service or a better experience. Dan was GREAT!!! He took plenty of photos and videos for us, communicated clearly both on top and under the water, made us feel very welcome... More

- I wasn´t picked up as agreed, as they didn´t find my pension. No try to call me or the guesthouse. I needed to call, and in the end the owner of the pension had to drive me to the shop. I guess if I wouldn´t have had prepaid the dive, they would have searched, but as the dive was... More

We had a group of people that had never dived previously including ourselves. Their english was a tiny bit broken but they kept it simple when instructing us how to use the equipment. The dive was only about 6m and 30 mins long. There was 3 dive instructors on board that would each take 2 people down while the rest... More

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
