Safety – Discovery – Enjoyment

Welcome to the website of the only diving centre on Tahiti’s  Presqu’île. In no time at all you’ll be gazing at the Presqu’île’s superb gorgonian covered reefs from depths of 20m.

From TARAVAO to TEAHUPOO, and passing by TAUTIRA, you can discover it’s 15 renowned diving sites and many others that are waiting to be explored.

A wild and untouched peninsula, incredible fauna and flora, and let’s not forget the whales from August to November.

PADI centre, FFESSM (French Federation of Undersea Studies and Sports), CMAS(World Underwater Federation).

From an introductory dive to Open Water instructorship, you can even become a Divemaster.

My philosophy: Safety – Discovery – Enjoyment.

The dive centre

From 2009, ‘Tahiti Iti Diving’ has shared a passion for diving with its customers. We welcome everyone interested in discovery, training and exploration dives. Located in the marina of Phaeton Bay, we are within reach of the best sites on the Presqu’île.

Come with us as we discover the wonders of the west coast. Place you equipment onboard and we’ll show you the best diving Tahiti has to offer… The centre is
open all year round.

Equipment

The boats

Two semi-rigid (BWA and Zodiac) measuring 7.40m length and approved for 14 and 16 divers. The boats are powered by 200 horsepower Suzuki 4-stroke engines. They are fast and comfortable (with a roof on the Zodiac) and, being that it is specifically devised for diving, allows us to reach most dive sites in no time at all.

Diving gear
An AQUALUNG partnered centre, Tahiti Iti Diving always puts safety and responsibility first. We have a range of new equipment at your disposal (life jackets, shorty and long wetsuits, regulators equipped with depth gauges, flippers, masks). Our equipment is serviced regularly and maintained by ‘Tahiti Marine’, an
approved centre.
