Tetiaroa dive sites
1. The Canyons
After 20 minutes by boat, you arrive at the dive site that is at a depth of 65ft. A maze of canyons opens up the upper part - rich in coral. The site hosts many tropical fish that benefit from the crosscurrent of the « false pass ». Referred to as a false pass since there is no opening in the reef. As the dive progresses you become a spectator in this underwater labyrinth that offers a beautiful showcase of wildlife. Spotted eagle rays, white tip sharks, humphead wrasses and barracudas are all part of the scenery.
2. Eden Park
After 15 minutes from the divecenter you start the dive on a white sandy plateau scattered with various coral formations. The perfect habitat for many colorful fish : surgeonfish, butterflyfish, clownfish, bannerfish... The sunlight reflects onto the sand offering a breathtaking setting. In the deeper part of the dive (from 50 to 65ft), the reef drops off, giving free access to white tip sharks, spotted eagle rays, barracudas and turtles...
3. The Circus
The site is well adapted to beginner divers considering its shallow depth (50ft maximum). The reef is full of fish that form a semi-circle on the sandy bottom. This dive site frequently hosts many hawksbill and green turtles that come to feed and rest - a real awesome wildlife encounter for divers.
Only 20 minutes by boat from the dive center, the Aquarium divesite is located between two “motu” (islets). It proposes a maximum depth of 10ft perfect for introductory and certification dives.
