Swim with humpbacks in The Islands of Tahiti

Published on 17 June 2022

The ocean represents the complete lifecycle to the Tahitians, and they have a masterful, reverential and respectful relationship with it. The crystal-clear and even-temperature waters of The Islands of Tahiti offer the ultimate conditions for underwater exploring and there’s a combination of canyons, caverns and coral beds teeming with fish of all shapes and sizes.


Those who want to take it a step further and dive in the destination will be spoiled for choice when it comes to dramatic underwater views. Regular encounters include manta rays, schools of dolphins and majestic humpback whales. A giant pristine coral reef of rose-shaped corals was recently discovered off the coast of The Islands of Tahiti. The reef is thought to be one of the largest found at such depths and is seemingly untouched by climate change or human activities. The newfound reef, as big as 3 kilometres was discovered and studied late last year during a dive expedition supported by UNESCO. It is a remarkable discovery and provides an important insight into ocean biodiversity.
