Comments 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.
