We had a 2 tank dive with Instructor Max. We are both experienced divers, and the third member of our party was an inexperienced OW diver. The first dive was our "shark dive," and we were looking forward to seeing lemon sharks. We ended up seeing about 6 blacktip reef sharks, no lemons, a very nice coral reef, and fish. The second dive was to see "manta and spotted eagle rays" in the inner reef. We stopped along a channel... I would never think was manta habitat. We ended up seeing 3-4 spotted eagle rays, vaguely, as they passed by. This was really a poor dive site... I'm not really sure why it was chosen.

I think Max was limited by our OW diver in the area that we covered. I recognize that the ocean is the ocean, and you get what you get, but we depended on him to visit 2 great sites... we were in Bora Bora! The first site I'd rank average, and the second was below average. I would be hesitant to visit these sites again.

I loved Max's enthusiasm and knowledge. We passed a dive boat from another company, full of divers. We had 3 divers plus Max. That's a nice ratio! However, the below average dive site was a bummer.

We enjoyed our small dive group very much. Max, Nicki and Matt all made sure we were comfortable and had a good time. I especially appreciated the hot tea after the first dive - a nice touch! Maururu!

This was my first dive, post-certification, so I was a bit nervous. What a great experience! Dive master David was attentive and put me at ease right away. He was hilarious and kept things light. At the same time, he was very knowledgeable about the conditions. We saw amazing wild life, manta rays, lemon sharks, sea turtles. David pointed out lots of other smaller creatures. Groups are small and well organized. Equipment was current and in great working order. Highly recommended.

My boyfriend and I booked 5 classes to get our level 1 certification. They were very responsive via email to help us get prepared for what we needed for our dives. They picked us up from our hotel on time everyday and went through with us what we were doing each day.

We had 3 different instructors and all of them were very knowledgeable and helpful during the dives. I have anxiety and they made me comfortable during my dives. We also mentioned that I would like to see some Manta Rays and Lemon sharks so they specifically went to an area where we would see some.

Overall we had a great experience with them and would definitely return for some more dives in the future. If you have never scuba dived before and would like to we recommend this center!
