Thank you, Hiti for a great diving experience! Topdive is a fantastic dive shop conveniently located at Hotel Kia Ora. Some of the best diving in the world is just a 5 minute boat ride away. The staff are so nice and professional, and I can't say enough about how crystal clear and amazingly beautiful the diving is in Rangiroa.... More

Had a great scuba diving experience on Rangiroa. 2-3 days of diving is probably a reasonable time for this location. Very friendly staff and professional guides and the dive shop is on a hotel location (Kia Ora Resort & Spa), which makes transport very practical. Had a lot of fun drift diving at "superman speeds", but those dives are probably... More

My wife and I had 8 dives in the Tiputa Pass with Top Dive Rangiroa. We are still novice divers, but the diving was incredible. The dive masters (Yannick and Yukuri) were very helpful and looked out for us. I highly recommend an afternoon drift dive through the pass. We saw so many things - dolphins, several types of sharks,... More

We dove here at Tiputa pass .It was pretty awesome. The sharks were swimming near us, a manta ray and so many fish. The drift was our first, and we thought it was pretty fast- to us. The water was pretty visible and we enjoyed this dive. The shop was super close drive by and was nice. The boat was... More

After years of hoping at looking at the possibilities to go diving in probably one of the most beautiful dive sites in the whole world we finally booked it. It is the best dive site in the world if you hope to see great wildlife with big pelagic fish. The diving is not a walk in the park if you... More

We really enjoyed the DSD course. Top Dive offers personable, experienced, safety-conscious instructors, good equipment and dive boats, and great underwater scenery. The highlight was the dolphin we saw during our dive at Tiputa Reef. He swam around our group, stopped, nodded and then swam on.

We are a couple aged 46 and 50 with open water certificates and approx. 150 dives each under our belts. We came to Rangiroa specifically to dive. We researched dive companies on the internet and utilised the services of e-Tahiti Travel to book our trip including the diving. We selected Topdive as the previous reviews were great. We dived with... More

Difficult to find enough superlatives to describe this operation. I did ten dives with them over four days in Tiputa Pass. Topdive Rangi are welcoming and relaxed yet extraordinarily well organised. The boats and diving equipment are in great condition. The available dives are world class and as adventurous or relaxed as you might want. The first fast drift dive... More

My husband has been diving for over 30 years, and had just dived a month before his birthday. So we didn't figure there would be a problem. Because he turned 75 years old he could not dive without a physician letter of clearance and insurance. Most travel insurance will cover this. We did not find that out until after purchasing...
