You can observe them throughout the year.
The most popular sites are :
** Lemon sharks : Tahiti, the White Valley,

Can we do three dives per day ?
For safety reasons, we limit the number of dives per day and per diver at 2 dives. Nitrox certified divers will have the opportunity to dive up to 3 times a day (or 4 in Rangiroa – Sunset with a minimum of 4 divers). For non-certified divers, we advise them to pass Nitrox certification during their first 2 dives. It will allow them for next days to do more dives per day (3/4).
