Definitely the highlight of our New Caledonia trip. Camping is perfect with lots of activities. Location is to die for. Hienga island tour is must do. Special call out to Antoine for his patience with non- French speakers like us...

conveniently located at the camp ground, the dive instructors speak good english and had nice new gear for use. Dive sites are on the nearby outer reef on pinnacles and canyons around some of the channel mouths that pierce the barrier reef thru to the open ocean. The current through the channels means there was lots of really nice gorgon fans on display, a couple of good swim thrus and quiet a few large fish obviously coming in from the outer reef, including a couple of active grey reef sharks and a pod of large eagle rays that the instructor cunningly intercepted by taking a short cut up another canyon to get great views as they flew past - thanks Baptiste!

We took the tour to the Islet Hiengha in the winter time (July 2014). The scenery is wonderful, the water is turquoise blue with white sand beach. The tour includes and explanation of a botanical tour, where the guide explained the use and origine of some of the vegetation in the islet and the marine tour, which unfortunately our guide did not entered the water because he was having cold.

Did 2 dives in the morning and had a wonderful time.
The staff is really helpful and pleasant - lots of laughing!
The gear is of good quality, quite new, and well maintained: a pleasure to use.
Only one thing missing: they don't provide depth gauges so think about bringing your own.
I am not sure whether they have dive computers for hire but it didn t seem like it.
The dive sites were nice, really interesting subaquatic architecture.
Would definitely recommend them and go diving with them again.
