Private Scuba Dive for two. The Te Maru Nui company provided the Professional dive instructor, scuba gear, dive boat and the boat Captain. 2 tank dive day. First dive was a ship wreck at 80 feet. Very cool to be inside the old boat. The Dive instructor, Floraine, is very familiar with this dive site so she gave me the confidence to follow her into the actual sunken ship. The second dive was on the outside of the barrier reef (ocean side). Incredible variety of fish! A black tip shark swam by. Fun! Quite a professional operation. I think this company uses their boat for special snorkel tours. They speak French, and speak English, but the owner speaks good English. I would recommend emailing them to see if they can meet your snorkel or scuba diving, or boat adventure goals-needs. They were prompt with email and they designed a specialized trip for us. The boat holds about 10 people, but we were just 2. We went during covid precautions time, November 2020, so we set up a private scuba day and used social distancing.

Myself and my husband enjoyed two days of diving with Floriana. The experience was highly positive, she arranged diving in the best spots of the area, having the chance to see from small critters to big fish. Everything has been done with high professional care (she checked throughout the whole dive that everything was OK) and we also appreciated little attentions between dives as tea and biscuits/cake. Highly recommended !

We had a wonderful experience with Floriane for the two snorkeling trips that we took with her. She is a knowledgeable guide and took us to wonderful coral gardens. In addition, she has little attentions (tea, cookies...) that were appreciated. Highly recommended!

Planned drift snorkel experience. Pros - 45 minute boat ride to site, crystal clear blue water, beautiful scenery. Cons - waited 30+ until "missing couple" was found, more than 10 guests in boat (maximum in description), very poor supervision and directions by guide, didn't keep an eye on folks or ask re people's snorkeling skills. NO FINS ALLOWED, supposedly per government rules (however we saw other folks using fins). Strong current and some folks got badly cut by coral. Guide was not attentive (guest provided initial first aid supplies). No one elected to do second unescorted second drift snorkel. Representative at booth at dockside was not willing to listen to guests' concerns when we got back - hence this poor review.

Floriane and her crew were most accommodating - as a solo diver she took great care of me and ensured we had tea and biscuits after each dive. I would thoroughly recommend !
