Our family of 4 dove with TopDive in Moorea, Bora Bora and Rangiroa and our experiences were universally excellent. Although we own our own equipment, due to the length of the travel, we opted not to bring it along -- always a crapshoot when diving with a new operator. This was no problem, as the gear at each location was... More

I have been diving with Top Dive for the past four years. This year I made ten dives at Rangiroa (my third year at Rangiroa). The Top Dive boats and diving equipment continue to be in excellent condition. The dive guides and dive shop staff are professional, knowledgably, and friendly. The dive guides thoroughly brief each dive and are fluent... More

Yannic guided the majority of my dives and was excellent. Keeps control of his group but always has one eye on the deep blue. There are 10% discount cards to pick up on the tourist office in Papeete and when coupled with the dive packages of madness this a great value company to use. Super professional but relaxed and friendly

We dove with Top Dive in Rangiroa in May 2016, while staying at Kia Ora. I would highly recommend Top Dive, it was a great experience. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and were well informed. Throughout our experience we were lucky to have Laurent “LoLo” as our Dive Master. Wow - what a great guy. From the... More

We had several great dives here. The sea life we saw was amazing. Swimming with dolphins, grey sharks, barracuda's and many others. The water is so warm and clear, at 60' down our dive computer read 30C water temp. Topdive was very friendly and accommodating. You get what you pay for.

I live in Florida, but don't scuba anymore - just snorkel, so this was a good trip for me. The tropical fish weren't as plentiful as they are in the Florida keys, but the guides were good and lured the black tip sharks to come and swim around us. There were rays, too. And a lovely ride out to the... More

Say the point first, I saw sunset dive in Bora Bora & Rangiroa, so I thought it was everywhere you can join, then until Fakarava, I realized they didn't have sunset dive, then I was regret I didn't do it in Rangiroa, so please go for it! Back to my point of view, try the two pass Avatoru and Tiputa,... More

I stayed at the Hotel Kia Ora and Topdive has a location on site. The boat ride is short (5-10 minutes) to the pass. The guide was professional and spoke good English. I was a little surprised that they are 100% Nitrox and I am not certified for Nitrox. They said no problem but I knew nothing about the adjusted... More

So these our my first two dives after being certified yesterday in Moorea. On dive one, got to see the drop off to the deep blue for my first time. Second dive, was a drift dive through the Tiputa straight. Most awesome experience ever. The guides provide a very thorough brief of each dive prior to leaving for the boats.... More

Launching directly from Hotel Kia Ora in the dive boat makes for quick transition from the pre-dive orientation to the water. All the gear was Aqualung and good quality. Nitrox no extra charge. Divers focused on safety and were extremely qualified and friendly. Multidive packages are great value. Tiputa Pass drift dive is a must and the surrounding reef dives... More
