Our dive center is essentially for touristic and leisure purposes. We make the most of exploring the two passes of the atoll. Nevertheless, you can take the level 1 certification - CMAS, FFESSM, CEDIP/ANMP and PADI, and also level 2 and level 3 and Advanced level certifications depending on the availability of the club. We welcome children from 8 years old.
On site, private dives and one-on-one classes are available upon request.
The club offers SCUBA DIVING SAFARI too. Scuba diving safaris can be either half-day or full-day excursions – 2 tank dive – in remote and unspoiled spots. Transportation is by a brand new 28ft BWA semi-rigid boat powered by a 250hp four-stroke YAMAHA outboard engine.
Typically, we offer three areas :
- MOTU PAIO is the only stranded islet in this huge lagoon. Schools of different fish species swarm out there and this is one of the only places in Polynesia where one can watch sharks of the Carcharinus Limbatus species.
- MAHEREHONAE where Mother Nature has piled up big coral chunks during a hurricane in the past century. One will contemplate outstanding coral gardens…
- THE RIFTS are wonderful and colorful cavities breaching away in the exterior coral reef. Here, one will gape at big sea fans and coral branches but will also frequently encounter pelagic species.
For safety measures, and for conviviality and comfort, we embark on board a maximum of six divers only plus staff, excepted for SCUBA DIVING SAFARIS where two groups of six divers only can embark on the new boat
A professional team films every dive in HD. Once back to the club, you can watch the video on a wide HD screen and we offer everyone a customized DVD of the dive.
