Simply the best dive center for divers who are really focused on the wildlife. This is not a luxury 5 star PADI resort, with a souvenir store inside, and t-shirts, and all that commercial stuff.... Its an old fashioned dive center, just for dive.... Our Instructor and DM, Stephanie, simply rocks!!! She makes your dive the best dive, for the... More

Enjoyed 10 beautiful dives with Raie Manta Club. Yves and Livia are both knowledgeable and passionate underwater explorers and make a great team to lead the dives. The dive center is at the quiet little marina where their zodiac boat is; there's a rinse tank, picnic table for after-dive tea & cookies, shower/bathroom on your right, and the compressor in...

If you intend to touch a dolphin and catch a shark by the tail or any of the stupid things most dive masters are doing to entertain their divers, don't go there! Yves and Livia are true ocean lovers. They know their stuff like the back of their hands, and are passionate to share it with their divers. It was... More

Rangiroa is one of the best dive sites in the world and Raie Manta Club is the best way to explore the multi-diversity of the marine life. They are real passionate divers, it is not their way of earning money but a life passion and mission to keep the dive site for others undamaged. From the very first contact with... More

Can't say enough good about Raie Manta Club in both Tikehau and Rangiroa. First Tikehau: We stayed at Ninamu while at Tikehau this time. The dive boat picked us up right at the Ninamu dock, and helped carry our gear to the boat. Axel, the dive guide, speaks very good english, so there is no problem there. Our first two... More

I hate to disagree with the other reviewers but here is my experience with them. We were in Rurutu in July 2011 for 2 days just to see the whales. Note that this is an expensive trip to make! They cancelled on us both days at the LAST MINUTE!!!! The first days the ocean was too choppy which is true,... More

I booked whale watching in Rurutu with Raie Manta Club. Wow... WOW! First, Axel and Justine are a great guide team. They got everything ready and explained how everything would happen. We went out 6 times (call me crazy, but hey) and I saw whales every time but one. Some encounters we're brief, but some trips we got in with... More

My wife and I were on a cruise in the South Pacific and I wanted my wife to give Scuba Diving another try. After e-mailing back and forth with Livia, she assured me that they could help her to achieve her goal. She kept her promise. My wife has tried before but was never able to stay down very long....
