At a glance

This tour combines the thrill of scuba diving with the tranquility of a quintessential paradise. Bright white sands are wrapped in turquoise waters, where multicoloured reefs wait to be explored. You’ll stay on a range of idyllic islands and in world-class resorts that rival the most glamourous of films sets.

Start the trip in Moorea, famed for its rugged volcanic mountains and lush foliage. You will also explore its lagoon on a snorkelling tour where you’ll come across stingrays, black tip reef sharks and turtles.

From here you will travel to arguably the most famous island of them all, Bora Bora. Here you’ll further explore magnificent lagoon waters on a luxury catamaran.

Following this, you’ll head to the lesser known yet equally beautiful island of Rangiroa, staying in the exquisite Hotel Kia Ora, famous for its unique location on a 10km long motu, with exquisite views of both the lagoon and the ocean on either side.

Journey deeper into the ocean, scuba diving in one of the only places in the world where you can dive with dolphins. This is not all Rangiroa Island has to offer, for you shall also explore the natural phenomena of the pink sands near the islet of Vahituri.

You’ll finish your journey on the coral atoll of Tikahau which offers pristine, undisturbed conditions in which to spot manta rays and hammerhead sharks.

This journey is a seemingly endless stream of paradisal hotspots, away from the crowds and stresses of everyday life, and where you can experience the most serene yet majestic offerings of nature.

Dramatic peaks cloaked in emerald green forest rise up from the bright turquoise waters of the lagoon that surronds the island of Moorea. Deciding which of the French Polynesian islands is the most beautiful is no easy task, but Moorea is certainly one of the top contenders. Sitting north west of Tahiti, this is an island ripe for exploring. Its lagoon is home to stingrays, black tip reef sharks and turtles and is a wonderful place to swim, snorkel and kayak. Keen divers will want to head further out to marvel at the coral reefs and marine life that inhabits these pristine waters.

Moorea Lagoon snorkelling tour Moorea Lagoon snorkelling tour

Board a boat to discover the exotic riches of the Moorea Lagoon accompanied by a naturalist guide. All snorkelling sites you visit are selected to ensure a privileged encounter with marine animals such as stingrays, black tip reef sharks or turtles, usually without encountering another tourist boat. You can also swim among tiki statues submerged near Opunohu Bay, or the colourful coral near the barrier reef. If the spinner dolphins are present, you will also have the opportunity to see them playing on the surface in the vicinity of the passes. Surfing enthusiasts can ask the captain of the boat to visit the best surfing spots.

In the lagoon off Rangiroa near the islet Vahituri, you will find a unique Pink Sands area. When the tropical sun’s light meets with the sand, the effect is just amazing, making it a beautiful natural phenomenon. Sand dunes stretch out towards the middle of the lagoon, their charming pink hue due to crumbled shells. These coral sands with delicate glints are covered by clear warm water, ideal for snorkelling. The tour includes a delicious picnic lunch prepared from local ingredients on a wild islet, located 15 minutes away by boat. Your visit will end in the Tiputa pass, where you may even have the chance to see the dolphins jumping through the waves.
