I do not normally write reviews and this is my first one.....I had a great refresh dive and fun dive with Arnauld. I am an occasional diver and hadn't dove for 7 years - the refresh dive was perfect for me and allowed me to dive days later at other atolls and islands in FP. I was a little apprehensive... More

I bashed Top Dive on Bora Bora, but I cannot say enough good things about Top Dive on Rangiroa. We dove with them 4 days. It was easy to check in with them and they kept our gear so we didn't have to carry it back to the room each day. They did change up the groups each day so... More

You come to Rangiroa to dive, and Top Dive at Kia Ora is as good as it gets with its convenience and proximity to the best dive locations. We had bought a dive package and did 6 dives in 3 days, all of them amazing. My husband and I completed our PADI nitrox certification with through Top Dive, and we... More

The dive shop for TopDive at the Kia Ora resort is everything you can want. Great service, great retail shop, free nitrox, solid dive instructors, the boat dock right there, and a 5 minute boat ride to Tiputa Pass. Why use anyone else? The first dive instructor I had was superior! Excellent with safety, and a real pro. Someone to... More

Visiting the islands briefly we opted for Top Dive for logistical reasons. Friendly people, fantastic dive guide with a good sense of humor, mr. positivity. Equipment could be a touch better, bit more variety in masks and fins would help. Nice dive site choosen and for the 2 in my little 3 man group that were dive novices it was... More

We did 8 days of diving with Topdive Rangiora and had 16 great dives! Sophie and Belan were very easy to work with via email for booking and advance questions; we had a ton of fun with Hiti, Vai and especially Renaud! Renaud made our trip extra special and was both fun and instructive to dive with. We will probably... More

Thank you, Hiti for a great diving experience! Topdive is a fantastic dive shop conveniently located at Hotel Kia Ora. Some of the best diving in the world is just a 5 minute boat ride away. The staff are so nice and professional, and I can't say enough about how crystal clear and amazingly beautiful the diving is in Rangiroa.... More

Had a great scuba diving experience on Rangiroa. 2-3 days of diving is probably a reasonable time for this location. Very friendly staff and professional guides and the dive shop is on a hotel location (Kia Ora Resort & Spa), which makes transport very practical. Had a lot of fun drift diving at "superman speeds", but those dives are probably... More

My wife and I had 8 dives in the Tiputa Pass with Top Dive Rangiroa. We are still novice divers, but the diving was incredible. The dive masters (Yannick and Yukuri) were very helpful and looked out for us. I highly recommend an afternoon drift dive through the pass. We saw so many things - dolphins, several types of sharks,... More
