Top Dive did a great job. Equipment was good although as previously mentioned we were surprised with Nitrox only. My wife and I have only 30 dives. We did not notice any changes using Nitrox. North dive was great and a bit easier for us....More

I dived both south and north passes with Topdive. In both cases the operation was professional, the gear was as good as new, the dive briefings were first class and the actual dives were brilliant. Highly recommend Topdive

Had two days diving South Fakarava Pass and the team were excellent. They were very knowledgeable and made the most our dives. The shark walls has to be seen to be believed.

Tokerau Village is excellent and Vaiama Village right next door is good (both at the nirth end) Can recommending both. If you're going to the south Raimiti is a bit expensive but is brilliant.
