Snorkelling & Diving
With shallow waters, oceanic drop-offs, sunken ships, bright coral walls and diverse marine life, Tahiti is perfect for both beginning and advanced divers, and if you've never dived before, but want to experience the underwater world, you can do an entry level dive that includes a pre-dive morning in the swimming pool learning the basics, followed by a dive that doesn't extend deeper than 15 meters. You can also just book a snorkeling trip, which still lets you see the marine life, including sharks. There are a number of different reputable companies including TOPDive, which is at the Intercontinental Resort and Tahiti Plongée, located at Marina Lotus, nine kilometers from Papeete.
