Can’t say enough good things. The dive shop itself is great. Beautifully situated on the shore, an amazing place to hang out between dives. The divemasters are great and are diligent about assessing the experience of everyone in the group and providing detailed briefs before each dive (which is important since these dives are on the challenging side). Lunch can be ordered before your morning dives and will be waiting for you when you get back - and is delicious. The dives themselves are spectacular, which is probably no surprise to anyone traveling to rangiroa. The Tiputa pass can be hit or miss in terms of what you see, but when it hits, it hits big (e.g., playful dolphins coming out of the deep blue to check you out). And even when it doesn’t, the currents in and out of the lagoon can be strong and make for interesting and exciting dives.

WOW! The absolute best diving I've experienced so far!! Every dive was incredible - schools of grey sharks, spotted eagle rays, playing with dolphins! There's so much activity and life near Tiputa Pass. I loved diving with the staff at The 6 Passengers - everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful. I hope to return some day soon!!

Wow!!! Is what I can say about 6 Passengers Diving. After I can say OMG!!! It was just fabulous! I with my husband dive in a lot of countries before, but this Tiputa pass with hundreds of grey sharks, thousands of barakudas, tortoises, huge waves crashing on the surface when you underwater, like in some fantastic film.... and of course dolphins, my biggest love 💕. We were lucky to see them, to touch, to play, it was my dream and reality comes even better! Rangiroa now in my heart! Cynthia is person in right place, she has unbelievable organisation talent, she will make you happy, be sure! ) Best regards to Terry, our dive master and for our captain, you are so professional guys!! We get so much positive experience, thank you, you are the best 👍

6 Passengers, with the resident cat by the same name, are an excellent dive agency located just south of the Rangiroa airport. Coordination with them is easy, pick-up is punctual, dive briefings are clear, diving in small groups without jostling for space is *extremely* enjoyable, and the dive masters are friendly and excellent! Tiputa pass, with its clear warm waters, and magical views of the underwater world including dolphins, sharks of various kinds, rays, and other marine life, lived up to its reputation. Could not have had a better scuba diving experience - if only the Coronavirus hadn't shut off the diving and truncated the trip! A suggestion: diving at the other passes would also be a welcome change.

Words cannot express how much fun I had diving with the 6 Passengers. My husband & I spent 11 nights in Rangiroa & spent a lot of time diving with them. We saw 7 types of sharks (whale shark, hammerhead, tiger, lemon, grey, white tip & black tip), friendly dolphins, flying gurnard, Napoleon, eagle rays, remoras, and countless beautiful tropical fishes. Dive instructors, Gaetan & Louise, were friendly & professional. When the group was small, Gaetan focused on seeing sharks as he knew that I was into sharks. He also took us to "swimming pool" where you can see waves break into countless tiny bubbles above you. I really appreciate the personal touch. Cynthia & Clare in the office responded my emails quickly & answered all questions I had before I got there. All of the dives were in Tiputa Pass. It has so many different faces. Each dive was different & I enjoyed every one of them. P.S. They also have cool tanks & T-shirts with their logo. I cannot wait for summer to wear their tank :)
