“amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

we went diving with yvan(the owner) and as we waited for other divers on the second dive,we were lucky enough to see whales;yvan took us there to swim with them and it was a real magical moment!the whole team of the dive center is really nice,they make you feel "at home" although they are really concerned with your safety;when we dived,we were only 5 of us...i highly recommand it!

“Great diving center in Polynesia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

What a great diving center. Dan welcomed us as friends as soon as we stepped in. We went for two wonderful dives on a rainy day where we saw manta rays on the first dive and all sorts of sharks on the second one. Really good dives with hilarious Ivan. Got he made diving fun without compromising safety. We are still laughing at our diving video ( on sale when the videographer is on board which is pretty often). The boats are safe and the cup of tea and biscuits welcomed in between dives. The great thing too is you can use the Te Moana inter islands pass which makes the dives only 6000cpf. Highly recommended!

“Like being taken on tour with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

There may be several dive centers in Bora Bora, but these guys really stand out for service. Their instructors are fun and friendly, and really make the dive more like being on a trip with friends than being taken for a tour by a stranger. They were really friendly and helpful and made the diving so easy to do.
Sarah, Ivan, Nico and Dan made the trip memorable with their high level of service and will make your decision to use their dive center the right one!!

“Yvan and his team delivers consistently a professional yet friendly service/experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

I am a Shore Excursion Manager on one of the cruise ship calling for 3/4 month in FP each year and have sent over the seasons hundreds+ passengers to Bora Diving Center (for regular one and two tank dives or introductory dives). I have to say that I have only received good feedback from these guys...and that even on rainy days ; ) . I know Yvan and his team delivers consistently a professional yet friendly service/experience. Good job and see you all soon : )

“Excellent Dive Company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We had a wonderful time with Bora Diving Center. We decided to go with this company due to the good reviews on Trip Advisor and our concern that the other big, corporate dive company in Bora Bora would not be great. We made the right decision in going iwth BDC!

Bora Diving Center was absolutely perfect and I wouldn't have changed a thing. They picked us up right at our hotel. All of our gear (including a full wetsuit for me and a shorty for my husband) was waiting for us on the boat. The dive crew were SUPER friendly, fun, and very professional. Frankly, they kept us laughing the entire time. They assisted in getting us geared up and got us into the water quick. The dives were long and they were great about pointing out the sea life. Between dives, a little snack while they switched our tanks for us. The second dive was equally as good.

After our dives were complete, we all were returned to our respective hotels. The took care of all the gear - no lugging it yourself. It was truly a pleasure diving with Bora Diving Center - you had all of the fun of diving while they did all the work - with a smile and a great attitude! I would definitely recommend this company over any other on the island!
