Your Dream Vacation is Here

Initiation Dive by Topdive

TOPDIVE has 2 centers, one in the north & one in the south of the island. Initiation dives will be done from the center located in the North Village, or South from Motu Penu. Pufana sites (North) & the “Tetamanu Lagoon” (South) are ideal for beginners & photographers: much of the fauna and flora is represented there.


Meet your instructor at the reception of the diving center or get picked up from your pension. Your instructor will provide your diving gear and the boat will head towards a diving spot with shallow water .

Listen carefully to your instructors direction who will show how to get equipped with your diving gear and explain all the safety instructions along with showing you a few simple signs to communicate under water.

The introduction takes place at a maximum depth of 0 to 6 metres, and lasts about 45minutes, with a maximum of 2 beginners per instructor. The instructor will stay by your side throughout the dive, assist you, and guide you while you enjoy the wonders of Fakarava’s lagoon.
