The two dive sites we were taken to had very strong currents at different levels and ended up being a modified drift dives. The walls had many different corals and the colors under my dive lamp were magnificent. On one dive we had 3 dolphins come and check us out for awhile which is always exciting and amazing to see....

I had bought a Topdive pass and dived with them in Moorea (Intercontinental), Bora Bora (Maikai), Rangiroa, Fakarava North and Tahiti Nui (Intercontinental), in November/December 2015. I will review each one separately as my experience varied from average to excellent. Great dive centre with really nice staff. Awesome diving. Particular thanks to the lovely Irene who helped me to find... More

Diving with TOPDIVE left us stunned by the beauty of the underwater world of Fakarava. We especially liked the Southpass - or "shark paradise" - but also the North is worth seeing. Cissou did an amazing job and we really loved spending time with him and his lovely girlfriend. Highly recommended!

They provide diving services such as guiding the dives but also maintain a facility with a compressor able to provide free nitro. They are knowledgable divers... More

Saw Manta, Spotted Eagle, Sharks, Pacific Sennett, Pompano and all the usual tropical. We also saw some Crown of Thorns the do not seem to worry the locals. South pass is... More

A well run organisation with Sissou as Dive Master and manager and Irene as the lady who made sure everything happened! They offer three dives a day with two dive boats. The North passe offers stunning diving either on the outer reef during an outgoing current or drift diving through the passe on an incoming current and is some 20... More

Just returned 2 days ago from the most outstanding dive experience of my life. My wife and I stayed at the Pearl Havaiki in the air conditioned beach cottages where I was picked up each morning by a van from the TOPDIVE North operation. Found it amusing that they gave me the very precise time of 8:14 for my pick-up... More

Our kids dived twice in Fakarava with Nikita and they just loved it. He and his wife were very friendly and very accomodating. The dives themselves were fantastic as we were in the south pass which seems to be the place to dive
