Dive masters are awesome (special thanks to Marc!) and do whatever they can to show you what you came for (hammerheads, dolphins ...). They are accommodating and well organized. Snack bar next door offers great food (fish, sashimi). Was lucky to dive two days in...More

We were lucky enough to be able to spend some time in Rangiroa: enjoying the relaxed life of the "motu", getting to know every corner of Tiputa Pass and seeing the TopDive crew in action, day after day. Everything was unbeatable: Rangiroa extra laid back...More
