Tuamotu and Marquesas Islands scuba diving and live aboard dive boats.
Tahiti's dive sites offer an
average of 30m visibility along with masses of coloured fish life, canyons and
caves. Hand feed the moray eels or even dive the wrecks of an ocean schooner or
Moorea, the perfect south sea island,
is 10 minutes by air or 30 minutes by luxury catamaran from Papeete. Moorea is probably
best known for its fish and shark feeding. During feeding time, the marine life is so
dense that the view of your dive guide can become somewhat obscured! Dive sites include
The Blue Island, Napoleon Plateau offering large 80lb Napoleon fish plus sharks, the
Canyon, and Shark Dining Room where you'll be pleased to know that we are not on the menu
- but the shark and eel feeding is quite exciting.
Bora Bora, the jewel of the Pacific,
is a central emerald island surrounded by a myriad of islets. The colours of the lagoon
vary from pale turquoise to deepest cobalt, and the range of depth almost assures you of
sighting the gentle manta rays. The reefs are home to a great deal of smaller lagoon
dwelling species, and locals can introduce you to the 4.5 foot barracuda named Romeo.
Raiatea-Tahaa, the two sister islands,
attract large schools of pelagic fish, Dog-toothed Tuna, Barracuda, Leopard Rays and
sometimes Manta Rays when in season. Divers can assist with shark feeding - a hair raising
Huahine, the garden island, is where
Pacific Blue Adventure can take you to see Avafehia Pass, Coral City notable for
formations rising 10 foot off the bottom and the 15lb red snapper, Yellow Valley rich in
multi-coloured fish, the aquarium for beginners and the dive school. At Huahine you can
see giant Jewfish or Black Sea Bass weighing in at 400lbs.
Rangiroa is the place
where drift diving or shooting the pass can be done any day. The steady 5 knot
current offers an exhilarating dive and the regular scheduled dives are run on a
12 hour cycle so as to get the slack water. This cycle advances 45 minutes each
day. Rangiroa dive sites include Napoleon Manta Point, Motu Fara Pass, Mahuta, The Avatoru, Tiputa Aquariums and Tiputa
Tikehau was declared to contain the
most fish by Jacques Cousteau in 1987. Raie Manta Club - Tikehau, can show you those along
with providing night diving, photo and video services.
Manihi, famous for its black pearls,
has an array of sites offering frequent encounters with Manta Rays, drift dives or the
Pass Entrance. 'Grouper City' has a notable aggregation of marbled grouper.
