      Special comments

      Any swimming is at each participant's own risk.

      The islands of Taha'a and Raiatea (directly south) are thought to have once been a single land mass. The reefs that surround them created a magnificent lagoon where the waters are calm and inviting. They also helped form one of the most stunning coral gardens in Tahiti - and this tour takes you there.

      The coral garden lies between two tiny islands: Motu Maharare and Motu Tautau. Under the surface, in shallow water of about three feet, lies a rainbow of colors set over a white sand canvas. The color comes from both the coral formations and the marine life that calls the reefs home.

      Green fish with dark red accents dart one way while yellow fish with black stripes veer off in the other, the color combinations continuously dazzling you.

      There's a nice, constant current that gently carries you over the crystal-clear water, so you don't have to exert any effort. Just glide along and enjoy the constantly changing view of this underwater metropolis.

      Coral reefs are also a great place to spot other marine life, like sea urchins and octopus, so keep a sharp eye out. And don't hold back from going over the same area a second time; you'll be surprised at how much you missed the first time.

      The Vanilla Island

      Quietly, peacefully, and unassumingly, Taha'a produces 80 percent of all the vanilla grown in French Polynesia. Cultivating vanilla pods is so labor-intensive that vanilla is the second most expensive spice, behind saffron. But as important as vanilla is to Taha'a economy, it's not native to any of Tahiti's islands. It was introduced from South America by French Admiral Francois Alphonse Hamelin in 1848.

      Non-refundable if canceled within 7 days of requested services.
