      • Dolphins watch: If you think dolphins are fun in captivity, wait until you see them out in the wild. They leap, surf the waves, and play uninhibitedly, putting on a wonderful show. If the water conditions permit, we'll get in the water with them.
      • The Aquarium: We'll stop at this popular snorkeling spot, a blissfully protected sanctuary named for the thousands of tropical fish that swim along with you.
      • Tiputa Pass: One of only two ways into the Rangiroa lagoon, Tiputa Pass is one of the most exciting snorkeling sites in the world – your chance to see a variety of large fish that could include hammerhead sharks and bottlenose dolphins.
      • Snorkeling equipment: Everything you need for your snorkeling adventure is included in the package, like the mask, snorkel, fins, and a professional guide.
      • Roundtrip transportation: Hotel pick-up and drop-off from most local hotels is included; a small fee may apply at some locations.

      Special comments

      Any swimming is at each participant's own risk.

      Few two-hour tours pack the amount of excitement and satisfaction that this tour offers. You'll love the ecological beauty in the Aquarium. You'll love the thrill of drift-snorkeling through Tiputa Pass. And who in the world wouldn't love watching dolphins being dolphins?

      On this tour, you learn, participate, and enjoy. These beautiful reefs are home to an immense variety of marine life – small playful ones like parrot, surgeon, and labrum fish in the shallows, as well as sizeable specimens like sharks, rays, Napoleons, and others in the deeper ends.

      But the stars of the tour are the dolphins.

      These are bottlenose dolphins, same type as often seen in marine parks. But these dolphins are even more fun to watch, because they're free to do whatever they please.

      You'll see them as they play in the water with the enthusiasm of a five-year-old, yet displaying the skills of a powerful and graceful swimmer. And maybe – just maybe – if the timing is right and conditions allow, you'll get to go in the water with the dolphins.

      But even if you don't, seeing dolphins in the wild is worth the price of admission.

      Powerful endorsement

      You'd expect the locals to claim that Rangiroa's lagoon is teeming with colorful coral and marine life, making it ideal for snorkelers and divers. But that's not just their opinion. Not long ago, an impartial voice confirmed that the 42- by 16-mile lagoon is, indeed, among the world's most beautiful and richest in marine life. You may have heard of him: Jacques Cousteau.
