Dive Spirit is one of the best operations we've encountered. We loved the higher capacity steel tanks, fast boat, and our exceptionally knowledgeable and attentive guides. Some of the diving in Fakarava is a bit technical (strong current), but they go out of their way to make sure you have a safe, comfortable and unforgettable experience. The diving in Fakarava...

Good staff, friendly owners who wouldn't let me go on an advanced dive until they had seen me on the intermediate- I like that! Used their gear which was good quality and big tanks so plenty of time for a full dive. 20 minutes boat trip from their own dock. Sea life = heaps, sharks, morays, a view full of... More

Diving in Fakarava with Dive spirit have been the best diving experience of my life! Amazing seabed with Sharks, Tuna, Barracuda, Dolphins... Ali Baba spot.... The most important was the kindness and professionalism of Mathias et Ariane! Thank you and see you soon :)

Matthew, from Spain, was our guide on our snorkel excursion. He was very professional. We did this snorkel in very snug wet suits. This trip was in a Zodiac style of boat. The excursion took place in the afternoon and the tide was low, which made entering and exiting the boat at the pier not trivial. We had a thirty... More

I was really lucky to find a spot with this dive center. I was actually recommended to dive with them by a friend I met and she was totally right. It all starts a day before the dive, when either Ariane or Matias will visit you at your accommodation to sort out your dives, get to know you and finish... More

If you want to dive the acceptional environment of Fakarava than you have 3 options at the moment. From what we have experienced (and heard from other divers) Divespirit Fakarava is the Dive Center to choose! They take in consideration what your level of experience is and they know the area very well. On top of that they are very... More

Ariane and Matias are great: Ariane did the logistics via email and came by our bungalow the night before to discuss the diving in Fakarava. They take safety very serious and I started with an afternoon dive (since I am a beginner diver), followed by two morning dives. Ariane picked me up at my lodge for both days and dropped... More
