There were a ton of fish and beautiful coral. Drift snorkeling was a unique experience for us and was very easy to do. The current is stronger on some days depending on how windy it is. The key is to walk all the way up...More

The coral gardens and the fish are very beautiful, but the current in between the two motus/islands is very, very strong. You hardly have to swim, but the coral is so very close to the surface that avoiding them is very difficult - you can't...More

If you stay at the Taha'a Resort, this is walking distance, and the current takes you through the garden, which is great for ease of swimming. The variety is a lot with corals and fish and a guide can give you all the details. There...More

Not too many fish. Current is too fast. Is to get scratched by corals. Better to snorkel towards the end of the drift zone.

Snorkelling is free in the Jardin de Corail. All you need is for your hotel to get one of their staff to take you there by boat. Ps: it's so beautiful I spent 2 hours there!
