Rangiroa is the best place I have ever dived. The equipement offered by topdive is very good. The staff is always there to help you, mostly Manu and Coraline, the dive masters that leaded us there.

I liked Topdive a lot. The kit is first class, the boat and shop are well maintained and the instructors seemed really enthusiastic. A few things to note though. Firstly, this dive centre makes you use Nitrox. That's fine but slightly throws you if you've...More
