The Islands of Tahiti


Whether you’re diving in the lagoon, out on the reef, or in one of the passes, and whether you’re a complete novice or a seasoned diver, you are in for a treat! In the crystal clear, warm water, you’ll delight in the glorious colors of the coral and the profusion of so many species of fish. So put on your fins on and get in the water. We’re taking you for a dive!


Rangiroa, a mecca for divers

They’re friendly, playful and absolutely adorable. So they certainly deserve a special mention. They, of course, are the dolphins of Rangiroa. It’s highly likely that you’ll see them at play, especially if you swim towards the famous Tiputa pass. Another famous pass is Avatoru, but its fame is due to the barracudas, silver tip sharks and the shoals of jackfish that abound there. Whatever your level, Rangiroa is the place to go if you love sport.

Fakarava, the realm of sharks

To the south of Fakarava for a unique experience. At Tetamanu pass, the gentle current provides perfect conditions for sharks, and a well-stocked food store too! During the daytime, the sharks gather to rest. They form a gray ‘wall of sharks‘, a spectacular sight for any diver. Drop in the water on the ocean side of the reef during the incoming current, then drift along the reef (paying careful attention not to harm the coral!) and admire the display as the current sweeps you gently to a magnificent coral garden. You want more? Then go north to Garuae, reputed to be one of the very best dive sites in the world. Stretching over 1600m, it is also the largest pass in French Polynesia. Thrills and excitement guaranteed in the face of such a large quantity of sharks, including silver tip, hammerhead and some even bigger species. You’ll pass fields of multi-colored corals and a multitude of fish of all shapes and sizes, including Napoleon fish. And in November, on the exterior side of the reef you’ll almost certainly come face to face with the majestic manta ray.

Visit the wreck of the Nordby at Raiatea

A dive to the wreck of the Nordby at Raiatea is possible for everyone. The 50m three-masted ship, which sank in 1900, lies at a depth of just 30m. Anchored with its chain too short, the ship broke free and began to drift, before striking a rocky drop-off and going down. The metal hull and rigging are still intact and two of the three masts can still be seen. You’ll be accompanied by some angelfish and a few jackfish. Dive at night, it adds to the thrill.
