We had a great dive experience with Top Dive in Moorea.  We were met at the
scheduled pickup location on time; the dive operation is clearly
well-managed and organized.  All three of the dive masters were very
professional and knowledgable, not to mention very friendly.   They were
additionally very accomodating with our schedule in terms of arranging
dives at different times for different members of our party.

My four daughters were additionally able to get their Nitrox certification
through Top Dive Moorea.  Again, the dive masters were very accomodating
and knowledgable with this.

On all of the dives, we saw many lemon and black tip reef sharks - in part
because the dive masters brought a chunk of tuna with them on each dive.  I
do not necessarily support 'feeding the sharks,' but it did allow for a
unique shark diving experience.  There were also of course an abundance of
tropical fish, and mutliple sea turtles as well. 

We were broken into groups among the three dive masters, and our bottom
times ranged from 40-55 minutes.

Overall, a very enjoyable experience, we would all return!
