Due to extremely stringent regulations, SCUBA diving in French Polynesia is outsourced with a local Dive center. These regulations do make for some of the MOST unspoiled and healthy corals in the world.
TradeWinds organizes diving through a local Dive center in Bora Bora, called Eleuthera Bora Diving Center, and TradeWinds' guests receive a special discount. If you want to BE SURE TO HAVE A DIVE SPOT on the dive boat, please contact them in advance and PRE-BOOK and PRE-PAY the dives directly with them:
On a regular week, diving is offered in the mornings on two days: Sundays and Tuesdays, and one or two-tank dives are possible on each of these days.
Your captain will finalize the schedule for your dives with the dive center after boarding.
Diving is at a cost of 9,000 XPF per one-tank dive and 17,000 XPF per two-tank dive for certified divers, and 11,000 XPF for an introductory dive for non-certified divers. (Note that the introductory dives are done in the afternoons).
The price includes: All diving equipment (including regulators), a professional local dive guide, drinks, and snacks while on the dive boat between the two dives.
If you would like to dive before or after your charter, we recommend buying a "Te Moana diving Pass" to get discounted dive prices in many dive centers in French Polynesia: www.temoanadiving.com/en/the-dive-centers/
