This is a great activity that you can do more than once if you’re staying at Taha’a resort. We did the pass multiple times in one day and it was exponentially better when we brought the hotel’s fish food. It turned into a full-blown underwater...More

I am less of a snorkeler lover than is my wife. That's why it was easier for the two of us to enjoy this unique experience. This area is quite shallow so it's easier to stop when you please and simply stand up. For this...More

A very good place to snorkel with fish and coral. It requires a bit of skill and maybe difficult for children.

We are avid snorklers and this is by far the best show under water. The coral is amazing, all kinds and colors. And the quantity and types of fish seems limitless. We stayed at the resort right next to the garden so got to be...More

We could access it from the Le Taha'a Resort or a cruise boat we were on. If staying on Tahaa, you should be able to find someone to take you there by boat. It is fabulous.
