Bora Bora and the Society Islands of Tahiti present the classic picture of the South Pacific. High green volcanic peaks rise above turquoise lagoons protected by outer coral reefs.
You'll feel like you've stepped onto the set of "South Pacific" when you arrive on Tahiti's neighboring island of Bora Bora. Jagged emerald peaks and crystal clear turquoise waters surround the beautiful Maitai Hotel Bora Bora.
You'll dive twice each morning with TOPdive Bora Bora (www.topdive.com). They offer Nitrox at no additional cost to those divers who are certified to use it. It will be summer in Tahiti, so expect 84F (29 C) water and occasional showers.
Experience fantastic dive sites like Muri Muri/La Vallee Blanche, famous for sharks, and practice your pass diving at Te Ava Nui. Don't worry, sharks in French Polynesia are not aggressive, and all skill levels of divers can be accommodated.
This non-hosted adjunct to our Tuamotus liveaboard is perfect for couples or friends where one dives and the other doesn't. Easy lagoon snorkels and introductory dives are available too!
