Nua did a great job with a pre-dive briefing to let us know exactly what we'd see. He made it super fun! We did 2 dives and had a total blast. The water is warm, clear and full of coral and fish, sharks, eels, etc. Can't say enough about TOPDIVE and Nua. If we go back we'll use TOPDIVE again!

Top dive operates a pan-French Polynesian diving operation. I used it in Tahiti, tikehau and Bora Bora. The operation is well integrated - I could rely on staff to communicate between the 3 venues without any problem, even though in tikehau it operates under a different brand they all worked well together. Kit was in good condition and they used... More

We had our diving session arranged thru Four Seasons. Both my hubby and I were first-time-divers and were quite nervous before setting off. I actually panicked when we were led deeper and deeper into the water (I actually dunno swimming). Our coach (sorry I forgot her name) was very patient with us (well, me mainly) and without her, I wouldn't... More

I had a great time diving with Jeff. He knew what he was doing and I really felt safe. Top Dive checked everything a couple of times before we dove. They completely explained everything we were going to see and do and they delivered. It was a full boat and I was concerned about the number of divers but they... More

Pick-up from the hotel to the dive center. Gear is set up for you on the dive boats (responsible for this yourself in the Caribbean)! $205 (US) pp/2 tank dive-worth every penny! Staff friendly and knowledgeable. The dive shop offers merchandise and camera/go pro rentals.

I found TopDive online and emailed them to inquire about arranging a dive. They confirmed with me quickly and required a lot of info about my certification - a sign of a reputable outfit. They arranged directly with my hotel to manage my pickup and were prompt and professional when getting me from the hotel. Dive masters were knowledgable and... More

I gave a 5 star review for the Topdive shop in Moorea, but the shop in Bora Bora was terribly disappointing! We had 5 dives each (my wife and I) booked but only did 4. We were shuttled from the Topdive shop in Thalasso (the best part of the experience because of the driver, Nue) and picked up some divers... More

I said everything in the title... Top dive is the best diving center in French Polynesia! Great instructors, amazing dives and so many things to see underwater ... Thanks again ;)

We dove with Top Dive in Moorea, and were expecting a similar 5 star experience in Bora Bora. Our boat picked us up from our dock right on time, and we headed to Vaitape to the main store for our equipment and to get onto our actual dive boat. They had all of us using Nitrox, even though they didn't... More

We had a great morning diving with Top Dive Bora Bora. The boat took us 15 minutes offshore to the reef where we enjoyed two shallow dives of 15M. The first focused on Black Tip Sharks and Lemon Sharks (much bigger). During the second dive we stayed in the reef and saw dozens of Eagle Rays trolling the sand trench... More
