We generally stayed as a group.  If the DM felt comfortable with your
skills (usually after a few dives) they would let you go on your own.  They
worked to max everyones bottom time.

They have small boats with separate camera tanks.  No separate tables on
the boats.  On shore, no dedicated camera area.  Note: the corals were
killed off by "Crown of Thorns" starfish about two - three years
ago, they are starting to come back.

We checked all the dive shops on Moorea while we were there, Moorea Fun
Dive had the best mix of friendliness and price, bear in mind, nothing is
cheap in French Polynesia.  They gave a credit for bringing your own gear,
which we appreciated.

They did a great job balancing divers with different levels of experience. 
They would let more experienced divers stay down, if they felt comfortable,
after beginners ran out of air and had to surface.  They did a great job
teaching about the islands and the fish around the islands.  We also really
appreciated their flexibility with scheduling dives and their concern and
dedication to the environment.

We would definitely recommend Moorea Fun Dive.
