All divers who have come here will tell you that French Polynesia is a unique destination for diving. How to resist to the beauty of the lagoons of blue water and more than 800 marine species such as fish, sharks and manta rays?
If you are a beginner or an experienced diver, everyone has a diving site. Most of these sites are located on the Iles Sous Le Vent and Tuamotu islands and they will take your breath away and leave you imperishable memories of the marine channel of Rangiroa, Mahili and Tileau which offer the most incredible excursions. For the adventurers, between September and November, the less known Austral Islands offers the possibility to encounter the humpback whales.
Various diving clubs can guarantee you security and strong sensations. In order to facilitate your trip to the different sites, some clubs offer the possibility to pick you up in your hotel.
When you get there, a group of professionals welcomes you before giving you the right equipment to start your aquatic safari. As specified by regulations, diving is closely supervised.

For beginners, no panic! Numerous introduction formulas can allow you to enjoy immersion. You will then be able to join the big family of divers that discovered the turquoise waters of French Polynesia.
