Embrace the undersea beauty of Tahiti's blue waters during this scenic and memorable lagoon discovery tour.

Depart the pier for the short ride to your snorkeling site. Depending on the weather conditions (winds and currents), you will journey to Tahiti's west coast, enjoying views of the mountains and shoreline.

Shortly after departure, your captain will anchor in one of the most accessible sandbars, in 4 to 10-feet of water. This short dip allows to take in the nicest views from the lagoon & the mountain background and gets you into the clear waters of the island for an enjoyable swim. Masks and snorkels will be available for those who wish to discover the abundance of tropical fish living in these waters. Keep an eye out for dolphins and stingrays, which are often seen in the area.

Swim, or soak in the warm sea, then re-board your boat and sip a refreshment before heading back to the pier.

Need to Know:

Note: Participants should be in good physical condition, know how to swim and be comfortable wearing snorkeling equipment, being in deep water and coping with occasional currents. Proper sun protection, a towel from the ship, and reef shoes are recommended. Those guests who participate in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility. Wildlife sightings, although likely, are not guaranteed.
