How many diving sites are there?
We visit some fifteen diving spots, which are them located on Moorea's North Coast, this for proximity reasons, so as not to extend the transportation time at the expense of the time spent diving. On the map of Moorea, on the page entitled "16 Extraordinary Sites", you'll find details about all the sites.
How long does it take to access the diving sites?
From our location, the access time to the diving sites vary from 5 to 30 minutes. Visit the various sites on the spots map.
Is it possible, for someone who doesn't dive to accompany someone on the boat?
For safety reasons, we can't leave one or several unattended persons on the boat during our immersion time, furthermore it's often uncomfortable for a not diver to stay 3 hours on the boat, about 2 hours at anchor + 1 hour of shipping, and the snorkeling or the swimming turns out dangerous per exemple in the Shark's Valley.
We only accept the not divers on the boat during the intiation, which are made in lagoon. It's free and limited to 2 people maximum.

The loaning of equipment is included in the price. It includes a 3mm wet suit, a mask, fins, a stabilizing jacket, a pressure regulator with gauge, a depth gauge, an "octopus", a lead belt, and a tank filled with tiare scented air from Moorea.
