With its plush beaches, stunning lagoons, luxurious overwater bungalows, and romantic atmosphere, it’s no wonder why Tahiti is such a popular destination for discerning travelers everywhere.
What many people do not realize is that in addition to gorgeous beaches and a setting that feels like paradise, Tahiti offers many fun adventures and excursions for travelers to enjoy. Be sure to consider these highly recommended excursions and activities on your next trip to Tahiti!
We’ll fill you in on one of the South Pacific’s best kept secrets. The snorkeling and diving in Tahiti is world-class thanks in large part to the pristine, crystal clear waters. The vast array of colorful, rare marine life, and your ability to get up close and personal with it, draws even the world’s most experienced divers to Tahiti. For a professionally guided snorkel tour, we recommend using Pure Snorkeling Bora Bora. Want a self-guided tour? The Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort boasts Moorea’s best snorkeling due to its breathtaking coral gardens.
2. Jeep Safari Tours
One of the best ways to get a sense of authentic Polynesian culture is to explore the islands’ small villages on a drive around the island, and we really recommend it for guests staying on Moorea. On a Jeep Safari, you can also explore your island’s volcanic peaks, crystalline waters, and lush hillsides.
Parasailing is one of the best ways to experience Bora Bora by air. Parasailing over Bora Bora is an experience you won’t soon forget. While you fly high over the clear, turquoise water, you can appreciate the emerald green peaks of Mt. Otemanu, the jagged shoreline, and the peaceful breeze. Be sure to bring your camera on this adventure for pictures no one will believe are real!
4. Shark & Ray Feeding
This popular excursion can be found on most of Tahiti’s main islands. After a short canoe ride into the center of a lagoon, you relax in a few feet of pristine water as your experienced guide hand feeds beautiful and docile sharks and rays.
5. Sunset Cruises
Want to switch things up? How about enjoying dinner with a view of the island instead of a view of the water? Sunset cruises are a popular choice among travelers who want to explore the lagoons at dusk over a relaxing cocktail.
