Moorea Fun Dive. Small but clean boats. 15-20 minute boat rides to dive
sites. We were picked up each morning on time. We dove in small groups but
you could dive your own profile. DM pointed out fish for everyone. Dives
were 45-60+ minutes depending on your air consumption. Would usually finish
up nosing around under the boat but there were things to see. 

Dive shop owner said he wanted divers to be comfortable and to have fun,
they made that happen. Everyone was competent and very pleasant. My
non-diving wife was not charged for coming on boat with her snorkel gear,
they threw out a line for her also. There was a pole ladder on the back of
the boat but it was manageable after handing up fins. 

Healthy reef and diving was easy. Lots of white tip sharks, reef and lemon
sharks. The 10 foot lemon sharks stole the show. All the usual fish
suspects were present but not in the large schools like Micronesia. There
was a starfish like creature they called crown of thorns that is killing
the coral and the DM would kill a few each dive with pieces of dead coral.
Looked a little strange seeing it without knowing what was happening. 

Laurel Samuela ( handled all the reservations for our 4
week trip to Moorea, Rangiroa and Bora Bora. She is an excellent travel
agent for Tahiti and French Polynesia. We stayed on her grounds in Moorea
in a beautiful large new garden bungalow (Te Nunoa). Kitchen, iPod dock,
privacy, beautiful. It was remote though, no restaurants within walking
distance, restaurants did pick up but some charged for it. Short walk to
nice beach walk. Local market nearby. 

I would dive with Fun Dive again and would book another trip with Laurel
Samuela in an instant.
