“Great diving, great people!”

Fakarava Diving Center
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Diving with Serge & Carine was so very enjoyable! Their dive shop is compact, the groups very small, equipment top notch. All very well organized.

Serge is very experienced and gave us some very useful tips that will definitely be helpful in the future. The diving in the Garuae Pass was spectacular, especially in the afternoon with ingoing current. Sharks everywhere :) We were sorry we could only do 3 dives ….

Ato's Blue Lagoon tour was amazing. We arrived on the Paul Gauguin and were greeted with our names on a sign. We were loaded into small boat and taken to the blue lagoon. It's a beautiful motu with a perfect white sand beach with gorgeous palm trees. At first we didn't think much of the snorkelling but then black tipped reef sharks came in the bay to swim with us. While we were playing in the water the guides were fishing and preparing lunch-complete with a fresh coconut and Hinano beer. The lunch was outstanding and the coconut biscuits were a bit of heaven on the beach. After lazing around a bit we were loaded back on the boat and taken to an open water snorkel spot. The water was deeper, there was more coral and the water was clear. When they took us back to the dock. we didn't want to leave. They made our time on Fakarava very special. Very good value.

This is the second time I have been on Ato's tour to the Fakarava blue lagoon. The area he takes you to is extraordinarily beautiful - you almost want to hold your breath at the beauty.
His operation is much improved. He has nice condiments for the food - fish kebabs, whole fish, rice etc. At the end of the tour he took us to a place outside the reef where he turns the boat around so the water is like glass. You can see below to 20 feet and the area is teeming with very large fish. Snorkellers jumped in and said the experience was wonderful.
The price for the tour is extremely reasonable.
I have booked another tour with him for 2014!

As a profesional photographer and dive instructor I always do a lot of research before booking with any dive shop.
Fakarava Dive Center came well recommended from an underwater photographer forum.
Fakarava Dive center were great and most of the times we were only three and four divers. Serge and Carine were great and very professional.
Fakarava has some incredible dive sites to offer.

I must say I disagree with the diving dutchman, Serge is an awesome dive guide, his enthusiasm is infectious. Serge dove the south pass today and I have seen them provide pension pick up. Serge and Cairrine are lovely people and he is one f if not the best guide I have ever had.
