Tahiti is the largest island of French Polynesia, and offers fantastic visibility, easy diving and some interesting and unusual dive sites.
Not known for its beaches, it tends to be used as a first or last night stop before heading to the outer islands. It does, however, have some of the best scuba diving conditions for easy diving. This is due to the location of dive sites on the west coast in the lee of prevailing easterly winds, producing calm surface conditions with minimal currents.
Tahiti has fine visibility and some interesting or unusual dive sites such as the underwater fresh water springs. It also has some interesting topography, with impressive walls covered in wonderful corals and a myriad of colourful reef fish, but they often lack the abundance of large marine life found in some of the outer islands.
Exciting day tours allow you to see not only the history and culture of Tahiti but also the island’s mountainous interior with deep valleys, clear streams and high waterfalls.
