Comments Dove Anau and Tapu dive sites in the Bora Bora lagoon with TopDive while on vacation in Bora Bora. Divemaster Berton was solid and safety conscious, but not much critter identification. Nitrox provided for all divers. Rental dive gear all in very good condition. Air pressure provided to divers in bars, not PSI.

Reporter and Travel

Dive Experience Over 1000 dives
Where else diving Throughout the Caribbean, Cocos, Fiji, Galapagos, and the Hawaiian Islands.
Closest Airport BOB Getting There Flew on Air Tahiti from PPT to BOB. Most of the afternoon spent sitting in PPT airport. Our Air Tahiti flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours during rain. No explanation was given by Air Tahiti, and some of our plane's original passengers left for BOB via a connecting flight, while we sat in the PPT airport. Oddly, we eventually left on the same airplane originally designated for our flight, which sat at PPT airport while many other original passengers had departed PPT during this time.
