Moorea Fun Dive is owned and operated by Edmee & Roland.  We learned of
Moorea Fun Dive through our travel agent Trip N Tour.  They were very
attentive to our needs and diving preferences.  Roland picked us up at the
hotel in morning and we did 2 tank dive.  They have small fast boats which
hold up to 6 divers.  They were very safety conscience with good dive
briefings and planned safety stops. All entries were back roll and easy
exit via ladder after removal of BCD and weights.  We did a combination of
free dives down the anchor line and drift dives.  The corals were excellent
with large amenities and lots of sharks.  They did not bait for sharks but
we saw many types ranging from Lemon, Black Tip and Silver Tip.  I had a
digital camera system which they assisted with in and out of the water 
the only negative was no camera table because the boat was small.  You
could leave your gear at the dive center overnight as they had lockers,
showers, etc to rinse and store gear.  Moorea Fun Dive was very
knowledgeable and gave excellent personal service.
The Sheraton Hotel was excellent. Moorea is a large island with many shops
and sights to see.  We had a beachfront bungalow which had a large porch
and easy access to the beach. We could walk out to the beach or to the pool
which was very large and shallow.  There was a wide assortment of food to
eat at the main restaurant or beach café.  The restaurant and bar
area was particularly nice because they were on the second floor with a
cool breeze and beautiful view of sunsets in the evening.  There were also
restaurants outside of the hotel.   The spa on the hotel premise was very
nice. There was also a room with a internet connection.  We rented a car to
tour the island and to purchase groceries such as snacks and bottled water
that were very expensive at the hotel.  The view from The Belvedere outlook
was excellent of the 2 inlets on Moorea island.  Overall we had a great
experience on Moorea.
