Comments We went to three different islands, dived with one op on all three. Top Dive had locations on all three islands. On Bora Bora and Moorea they were adequate. On Rangiroa they were very good. The diving on Bora Bora and Moorea was fair to good, with alot of sharks. The Pass diving on Rangiroa is world class and not to be missed if visiting French Polynesia. We stayed at Bora Bora Lagoon on Bora Bora, Moorea Pearl on Moorea, and Kia Ora on Rangiroa. At all three locations we had overwater bungalows and enjoyed the snorkeling and swimming from our private swim platform. The food and service at all three locations was very good...typical of 4-5 stars. This was a "bucket list" trip and we only dived half of our time; but if we went back, we would spend our time on Rangiroa and add the island of Fakarava.
