The dive company and boats were in great shape, they had aqualung calipso
regs and scubapro bcs. all tanks were yoke (nitrox tanks were al 100) all
other were al 80. there are NO depth gauges and my vytek said we were very
close to deco dives in just two dives a day. DEFINETLY bring your own
computer. by the 6th dive i had pretty much seen everything and due to
large swells we began to repeat dive sites. the water was  84 top to
bottom, i wore a 3mm full suit which helped me not get cut by the coral.
top dive was very nice and accomidated my rushed schedule. they were
obviously the best dive shop in tiny bora bora, enjoy your trip!!
