Coral Beaches of Moorea

1. Discover the underwater world on a Lagoon Adventure

This adventure is a brilliant introduction to Moorea and definitely one to experience early on in your visit to the island. The tour runs at a relaxed pace, and includes the perfect mix of snorkelling, and authentic island meal and swimming with the local reef sharks and stingrays in the lagoon.

The water is right up there with some of the clearest in the world, allowing for pristine snorkelling conditions. There are so many different types of coral to discover, and the sea life is unreal. There are so many brightly coloured fish, friendly stingrays and curious reef sharks.


The local skippers that run these trips are wonderful people and with their humorous, laid back, island pace, they add a great dimension of authentic Tahitian culture to the experience.
