Experience the beauty of Cook's and Opunohu bays from above and below sea level during this snorkeling and beach adventure aboard a modern covered boat.
Depart the pier aboard a comfortable and modern boat featuring covered areas designed to protect you from the direct rays of the sun. As you cruise along these majestic bays, your captain will inform you about the legends, geography, flora and fauna of Moorea.
Your first destination will be a gorgeous sandy islet surrounded by transparent turquoise waters that are shallow enough to walk comfortably in the sea. Upon arrival, you will have a rare opportunity to feed the awaiting rays; which will gracefully glide around you in exchange for a piece of fish.
From here, you will proceed to another uninhabited islet nearby where you will be served a beverage and have an opportunity to explore the beach and swim. You will also be invited to go snorkeling in water 6-10 feet deep. Snorkeling is performed in the shallow waters off the boat, providing an excellent opportunity for beginner and experienced snorkelers. The boat's ladders extend deep into the water, making it easy to embark and disembark the craft.
Following this last stop, you will cruise back to the pier where your tour concludes.
