I liked Topdive a lot. The kit is first class, the boat and shop are well maintained and the instructors seemed really enthusiastic. A few things to note though. Firstly, this dive centre makes you use Nitrox. That's fine but slightly throws you if you've...More

My 23 yr old son and I just returned from Rangiroa diving 7 two tank days with TopDive. Every dive was very different depending on the current, incoming, outgoing or slack tide, with very different sea life. We saw huge schools of barracuda, green morays,...More

Yes there are ladders that drop into the water from the side of the boats. Also the deck at the Kia Ora is very nice and easy to step into the boats from prior to departure.
