Comments Lots of news about the impact of the 2010 hurricane on the reefs. You could see that there was lots of damage, but there is still a lot of good reef left.

Blue Nui was OK. They were friendly and competent. Their boat was reasonably comfortable. Giant stride entry, ladder exit.

No rinse for camera, but a two tank dive only took about 4 hours, so it was not a big deal.

We rented gear from them. It was not the best, but it worked well.

They limit their trips to 6 divers, which is nice.

We saw Mantas at one site, the other site had lemon sharks, napoleon wrasse and lots of cool fish.

I would not plan a whole dive trip around Bora-Bora, but it is a fun activity as long as you are there.

Four Seasons was a great place to stay, but pricey.
