What a great experience, was just amazing . The staff was very helpful and made you feel comfortable walking on the ocean floor. Would make this a must for any visit to Bora Bora.

The diver who went down with us was attentive and worked to make sure we had a good time. The only negative was we had to wait on a second group that came out with us, which delayed our return.
