Comments I chose Six Passengers instead of Top Dive (which has shops all over French Polinesia) because I like smaller, independent dive operators. Six passengers essentially dives Tiputa pass, which is reached by a ten minutes Zodiac ride. It is always more or less the same dive, but is quite fishy and well worth. Like all pass dives, very currenty.
All dive masters are French, speaking excellent, if accented, English. Very friendly, especially Cannelle . When a large group of non English speaking Japanese divers arrived, they seemed a little overwhelmed .Facilities not luxurious, but adequate. Sometimes we were more than six on the Zodiac, but boat ride very short.
Overall very nice destination, especially for a diver/non diver vacation.
