Y AKA Plongée


The Best Diving Club!

The Diving Center

Y Aka Plongée Rangiroa is located on the lagoon beach between the Kia Ora hotel and Rangiroa public beach. We organize free transfers between your hotel or your pension and the base.

A few minutes of navigation are enough to reach the main dive sites, so that we can return to earth between each dive for a tea or coffee break or sunbath on the beach (hammock and sun loungers are at your disposal).

Open 7/7 all year from 7:30AM to 6:00PM

On-line booking and payment available
