FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Can we decide the dive sites we want to dive in ?

The dive sites are choosen by our instructors, this depending on weather conditions – confirmation 4-5 days before the planned dive.

What is the best season for lemon sharks / manta rays encounters - Where can you see them, which islands ?

You can observe them throughout the year.

The most popular sites are :

** Lemon sharks : Tahiti, the White Valley,

** Manta rays : Bora Bora, Anau site

Warning, if these sites are reputed to see these species, TOPDIVE does not guarantee the encounter.

Should we book the dates of our dives in advance, or can we do this on site ?

It is possible to book your dives on site, however, we advise you to do so in advance.

Can we do three dives per day ?

For safety reasons, we limit the number of dives per day and per diver at 2 dives. Nitrox certified divers will have the opportunity to dive up to 3 times a day (or 4 in Rangiroa – Sunset with a minimum of 4 divers). For non-certified divers, we advise them to pass Nitrox certification during their first 2 dives. It will allow them for next days to do more dives per day (3/4).

You can even safely explore the wreck by the port located on the fuselage’s left side (less than 50 feet in depth) or through the cockpit.

Water temperature: 26.4 - 28.8℃
Dive type: Ambience
“Papa whisky” is the name given to the small artificial island located adjacent to the airport of Faa’a. The breaker one can distinguish on the surface seems to be that of a cliff. It is, in fact, the edge of a vast amphitheatre (230 feet long) created by the collapse of one part of an undersea plateau. The interior of the structure better withstands the force of the surrounding currents.

At this point, 2 exploration dive plans are possible; one by way of the southern extremity of the arena and the other one from the northern point. Both options are recommended only to experienced divers. The journey on the South side is a beautiful geographical fault covered with yellow gorgonian coral formations. The north point is also rich in gorgonian coral although there are groups of violet coral. Once in awhile, you may come across some tuna that sometimes follow divers from a distance before disappearing into the blue. The visibility is often excellent from 150-200 feet where the ocean becomes an abrupt wall of cliff. You’ll find that the Gorgonian coral even bigger and dense at this depth.
