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.
