Comments If you're coming to Moorea anyway, this is a good operation to dive with. Coral and fish life is not extremely plentiful, and diving is performed according to the French standard. Diving is very standardized in terms of dive profiles and dive times. Much of the coral I saw was either dead or not extremely colorful. If you decide to dive on the spur of the moment, there is good rental gear here so you can take advantage of it (and I believe no discount if you have your own gear). Nitrox is not available, and this shop uses steel tanks.
