Tahiti holidays


Snorkeling and Diving: Tahiti is a veritable paradise when it comes to snorkeling and diving activities. World class facilities are available here and you will be amazed at how clear the waters are, and how close you can swim with the marine life. Divers have the option of choosing from hundreds of dive sites throughout the island, including oceanic drop-offs, sunken ships, amazing drift and lagoon dives. Shark Feeding: This is one of the most popular activities and of course, very exciting.

You can take a short trip into the lagoon on a powerboat or by a powered outrigger canoe and you will reach a place which is 4-7 feet deep of clear water. One can either float or stand in the water behind a secure rope as the docile sharks are hand-fed by an experienced guide. And, if you don't feel like getting in to the water, you can stay in the boat and enjoy the event.

Overwater Bungalows: These are traditional thatched-roof bungalows, built above the turquoise lagoon waters. These bungalows provide all the amenities of a first class hotel room, including a private balcony offering a glorious view of the sea and the sky. Food is delivered by canoe and you can see a varied variety of aquatic life swim below you as you look through the glass floor of the bungalow. Definitely unlike any of the rooms you must have stayed before in.

You can either rent a car or opt for the guided bus tour and take a glimpse of the local Tahitian way of life. For the more adventurous ones, horse back tours are also available.
