        A great dive!
        i'm happy to advise i had a most positive experience with Eleuthera Diving. I've been diving for 50 years but at this point it's a once a year event for me. My big requirements are that it be safe and special. The team at Eleuthera insured this was so. From the start i was welcomed by Marie Charlotte, and both dives worked with the same instructor; Mael. The key for me was Mael's attention to my safety and his expertise with the location and all things underwater, The first dive was a great confidence builder and familiarization... the second dive was more advanced, called "La Source". It featured a unique undersea fresh water spring plus lot's of turtles and varied marine life. It was similar in quality and experience to the Molokini Wall Dive in Maui. I look forward to a return visit!! A small positive point. Dive boat was located in a convenient marina, no more than 40 meters/yards from the shop. No long hikes or lugging equipment. Final Point... no language barriers for English speakers... all communications were perfect.

        Amazing underwater experience for families of first time divers
        We had such a great time diving with our guides Leia and Gilles(sp?)! We are a family of four with two older teens and not one of us had ever dived before (we're from Alaska)- both guides were incredibly kind and patient and made sure we had a blast and helped us through any hesitation with compassion and optimism. This is one of the peak memories of our vacation! I only wish we had had an underwater camera.

        I would give it more stars if I could
        Excellent experience all around; the dive shop was extremely professional in terms of equipment and fitting, they made efforts to ensure that all passengers knew the brief (in French and English) and even ensured they had enough instructors on the boat so that divers were split into groups of just two or three. The dives themselves were incredible over the reef and wrecks; I'd do this again in a heartbeat.

        Phenomenal dive experience in Tahiti
        This was by far the best diving experience I have ever had!! Beautiful locations and super friendly staff/divers!! I did this dive trip solo and am not the most experienced diver. I have also not done any dives outside of the US. I was a little hesitant and nervous for this dive. Eleuthera made the whole process super easy. I sent them some information before hand and then just had to show up. I was picked up from my hotel promptly by a very friendly driver and taken straight to the marina for check in. I met my dive master/partner who had a quick refresher course for me on prepping my gear and hand signals we would be using. They had all of the gear needed and made sure I was comfortable with all of it before leaving the marina. Once this was complete, we left for the first dive of the day. I was the only non-French tourist diving this day and took off on the boat with about 8 other divers. Despite being the outlier, everyone was super friendly and inviting. We briefed before the dive and talked about all the cool sea life we would possibly see and how the dive would work. Once done with the brief, it was time to jump in! The dive was phenomenal! So many turtles, eels, and fish! Once surfaced, we were collected by the boat and went back to the marina to restock on air. We were at the marina for about an hour. Great time to get some water, coffee, and a snack before the next dive. It was a 5 minute boat ride to the second dive sight. The dive brief was a short history of the sight and of all the cool fish we would see under the water. This was a shallow dive, but great! Two small shipwrecks, a plane wreck, and tons of cool fish! Phenomenal! We surfaced at the boat and were again taken back to the marina. I returned all my gear and was quickly taken back to the hotel by the same friendly driver that picked me up. The day ended at about 1pm. I can’t express enough how happy I was with this excursion/dive. Everyone was super nice and friendly and both dives were absolutely amazing. Highlight of my trip and would forsure recommend this to anyone going to Tahiti with a scuba certificate.

        Diving day
        I was only here to dive with them for one day. The two dives were good. They were timely and accommodating. The staff was professional and friendly. It was a very enjoyable experience.

        Great open water certification at Eleuthera Diving Center in Tahiti
        I recently took the Open Diver Certification with Eleuthera Diving Center. They were great! From answering my questions promptly by email, to picking and dropping me off at my Tahiti hotel as promised to go to the Dive Center, to excellent instruction while having interesting dives. Their equipment was good and everything, from course, to pickup, to equipment, to instruction to logbook was included. I appreciated the equipment was loaded on the boat rather than personally having to drag my own tank. Everything was done very professionally. So glad, I did the certification while I was there. I would highly recommend!

        Excellent diving with clear views and great service
        The two sinsgle tank dives we did were amazing. On the surface on the way to the dive we saw two humpback whales. Underwater, we could hear the whales "talking" and we saw many turtles, some barracuda, squirrel and puffer fish along a big wall. On the second dive we saw a shark and many puffer fish. The water is so clear and smooth, you can see clearly for a long distance. The rental equipment was in good shape and our dive guide Steven was very good.

        Great Diving
        Both our divemasters Romain and Jeremy were very nice and gave us great tips. We did on ocean and one lagoon dive and were able to see great wildlife. Great place to dive.

        Deep Dive into Tahitian Treasures: Eleuthera's Exceptional Experience
        Having dived in numerous locations around the globe, I can confidently say Eleuthera Diving Tahiti stands out as one of the best. From the get-go, their free pickup service from resort hotels ensured a hassle-free start to our diving adventure. True to their word, they were punctual with no glitches along the way. Special shoutout to Jeremy, Jean, and Homer for their exemplary service. Their professionalism, combined with an incredibly clean facility, made every trip feel safe and welcoming. It’s not every day that you find staff so knowledgeable about diving while also being accommodating. The added advantage of them speaking English, French, and Spanish made communication a breeze. The activities offered by Eleuthera are top-notch. Whether it was the Boat Diving Trips or the ethereal experience of the Swim with Whales tour, each dive was a memory in the making. An added perk for those considering multiple dives in the region is the “Te Moana” diving pass, which gives a more economical rate than the standard pricing. An absolute win if you plan on exploring the depths of French Polynesia extensively. In conclusion, Eleuthera Diving Tahiti is a gem in the diving world. We are already looking forward to our next dive with them. Highly recommended! 🐠🌊🐋

        Perfect experience
        Eleuthera, such a great discovery! Perfect facilities and professional team. The way they treated us from the beginning and the whole organization was a 10/10. The diving equipment is very well maintained. You dive in very small groups, which makes the dive experience even better. If I ever come back to Tahiti, I wouldn’t doubt and repeat the experience with them! Special thanks to Romain and Nico, but the entire team too! It has been a real pleasure.

        Best diving center in Tahiti!
        Some people say diving in Tahiti is not as spectacular as other islands in French Polynesia, I completly disagree. Mindblowing experience, not only for the dives, but also for the amazing team in this diving club. The best experience possible from the very beginning, super organized, the equipment is very new and well taken of. Also, we dived in very small groups. Nico is very friendly. He welcomed us upon our arrival, he showed us the diving club and offered us coffee and tea. He then explained us how our day would be organized and introduced us to Roman, our diving guide. He is the best! He explained us perfectly the diving spots, what we would be seeing and spent the dives showing us everything he saw. If we come back to Tahiti, we’ll definitely dive again with Eleuthera diving center! :)

        Great diving experience!
        Excellent diving experience with the Eleuthera Tahiti team! My son and I did a 2-tank dive on one of pur last days of an amazing 3 week trip in French Polynesia. We had go at the Aquarium (wreck) and St. Etienne sites - saw humpback whales, loads of turtles, lion fish, moorays and many more. The team was really helpful and had a lot of local knowledge to share.

        Delightful Dives
        We had a great day of diving with Jean. Jean and the crew take care of all of the equipment so that you can sit back and enjoy the experience. The first dive as at “The Crack” which was a spectacular wall dive. The wall is covered in beautiful coral and drops off into the abyss of the South Pacific. We saw a lot of sea life, including several turtles. The site is unique in that you can view the powerful waves that crash over the reef from below. A spectacular site. The second dive site was “The Aquarium” and it lived up to its namesake. There are several wrecks there to safely explore in relatively shallow waters. We would definitely dive with Eleuthera Diving again on our next visit to Tahiti.

        Beyond expectation
        Every aspect of this trip was excellent,, from pick up in the morning, through both dives, all the way to drop off at my hotel. The staff, crew and dive masters are all top notch. 100% great experience, very patient and knowledgeable, Will definitely book with them sometime in the future. And recommend them to anyone, 10 stars would be appropriate

      L'équipe d'Eleuthera est vraiment au top. Très accueillant et souriant, ils n'en demeurent pas moins professionnels pour autant. Leur connaissance de la plongée et des sites offrent une expérience complète et très agréable : les poissons, les coraux, le fonctionnement du lagon, ils répondent à tout. Et si vous voulez vous former en PADI, FFESSM ou Adip, vous ne trouverez pas plus compétents qu'eux. Un centre PADI 5 étoiles qui les mérites amplement. En plus le spot et le diving shop sont super agréables.
      Merci pour ces moments de plongées, de partage et de découvertes. Une ambiance club que j'ai adoré. FONCEZ LES VOIR!!!
