Dive Centre

The only dive centre on the Tahiti presqu’île

The dive centre

From 2009, ‘Tahiti Iti Diving’ diving centre 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 boats 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.

  • “Kakura”, a 7.40m BWA approved for 14 divers,
  • “Kakura II”, a 7.50m Zodiac approved for 16 divers,
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.
