Comments Very nice operation, our hotel (the Four Season's) is out on the reef.
Each dive day, the dive boat had to leave the dive shop on the island to pick-up. I many cases, then return to the dive shop for more pick-up of divers, and of course return to the hotel after the dives - and there is a great deal of travel to and from, which is the reason that the cost of the dives are high. But, if you like the big stuff - Manta's; sharks; Eagle and Sting Rays - it's well worth the cost!
Deny and JP are very good with divers of all level's and work to make each dive fun. Highly recommend Bora Diving Center.

Enforced diving restrictions I made 8 dives with Bora Diving Center and enjoyed each one. The viz was very good, with the exception of one dive within the lagoon. On one dive outside the reef, the current changed direction and we had a tough return to the boat. The operation was GREAT! Saw Manta Rays,Eagle Rays, sharks,etc
