Eco Snorkeling Tour: The purpose of this tour is to make you discover all the aquatic resources of our beautiful lagoon. For that, we'll take you safely on exceptional sites to meet manta rays, spotted eagle rays and a multitude of tropical fish as well as the discovery of unique coral reefs. This aquatic hiking, lasting about 4 hours, is intended for experienced swimmers as beginners. Simon, your guide will give special attention to convey his knowledge of the fauna and underwater flora. For your comfort, we provide you with all the modern equipment (fins, masks, snorkels and towels) for the practice of this activity. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available during the tour. For reasons of quality and safety we limit the number of participants to 8 people. Whale-watching : Enthusiast(s) by humpback whales, come and share some unforgettable moments to meet these giant of the ocean. The boat is equipped with a directional hydrophone offering exceptional sound quality for listening to their majestic songs. The season runs Polynesia from July to November (depending on the year) where they come to give birth and to reproduce. With over 11 years of experience in the approach and the observation of these marine mammals, Simon will be happy to share and convey this passion with the greatest respect for the animal. This tour is led by a guide and captain.
