Matthieu, Jean Paul, Françoise and Jaime were excellent! We dive mostly with Matthieu. He was very attentive and competent. We dove Le Passe, shark hole and the coral garden near the pass. We saw sharks and turtles every day, 2 mantas and a pod of dolphins during our 5 days with them. The Dolphins showed up during our surface interval,... More

I have been diving for over 40 years and this dive trip with the Plongee group was one of the most enjoyable dives I have ever had. The dive staff was very friendly and the most helpful and understanding group I have been with in a long time. I'm sorry I did not remember the name of the dive master... More

It was my first diving experience and I really enjoyed this moment! Tikehau is a famous spot for diving with an amazing fauna, seabed and corail belt. On top of that, Tikehau plongee guys were very professional and cool at the same time. All the levels of diving were sharing the same boat for the excursion, from snorkelling to experienced... More

Diving was great: 1. Staff was OK. Friendly, but could probably be better. Seems like they have a pretty high turnover rate due to the fact that the names I read about in previous reviews were different. 2. Diving is very good. The sheer amount of coral and fish life is staggering. 3. Much of the coral was bleached (70%)... More

Thanks you for your opinion , it's true we had much too much divers during your stay in Tikehau , because you were the only diving center open .It's difficult to give to the divers the same service than we have boat full and when we have only 5 or 6 divers . But I am happy to read you... More

Diving with Tikehau Plongee was a very enjoyable experience. The French couple who run the dives and their captain, Sam were very friendly and gave good instructions before and after the dive- and assisted with fish identification. Between our two dives we had fresh coconut and chocolate biscuits. We got up close to a turtle, sharks and eels. The centre... More

These arrogant dive instructors disregard basic boating and diving safety. Worse, the dives were expensive and boring. We went too deep and clocked out under 45 minutes for the first dive, and went to a snorkel spot for the second. Waste of money, waste of half a day. Dangerous boaters, awful experience. And costly.

It's taken me much too long to write this review (and thank you) concerning my experience with Tikehau Plongée. My husband and I dove three times with Jaime and his very professional staff in May, 2012, and cannot recommend this experience highly enough.
