In the middle of the Pacific Ocean, 450km northeast of Tahiti lies Fakarava, the second largest atoll of French Polynesia. Part of the Tuamotus Archipelago, and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the lagoon waters are teeming with marine life. It hosts some of the most healthy corals, hundreds of sharks, schooling fish, dolphins, and manta rays - all with truly exceptional visibility! Between dives, bike across the village with its gorgeous, flower-lined roads, bright coral churches, and quaint homes. Stop at the boulangerie for a snack or dine at any of the beachside restaurants. At night, marvel at the infinite shades of blue lagoon that inspired Matisse, and toast to spectacular sunsets from the beach. Extend your trip with more dives in Rangiroa (the atoll next door!).
The dive center has been built entirely in wood and uses rain water. They ask their clients to only use reef-safe sunscreen. They promote local employment.
For pelagic lovers, beginners can dive in the lagoon while experienced divers will enjoy the drift dives in the passes. Non-diving partners are welcome: cycling, kayaking, excursions on other beaches and lagoons, snorkeling, pearl farm visit, or sit back with a coconut cocktail.
Dives are possible seven days a week. Contact us for more dives, and if you wish to do a Discover Scuba Diving, a course or a specialty.
The price is per person, for a package of 8 dives in North Pass & 2 dives in South Pass (day trip inclunding lunch).
