Moorea's Scuba Diving

Moorea is an island in French Polynesia. Shaped like a triangle, Moorea is surrounded by several small islands called "motu", with 12 channels. There are three bays and an extinct volcano on Moorea.
The island provides a wide range of marine entertainment: diving; snorkelling; shark feeding; and whale and turtle watching. You can even renew your wedding vows during a romantic dive!
Scuba divers are drawn here by the unforgettable underwater volcanic landscapes, which are considered to be amongst the best due to their diverse flora and underwater rocks. Don't forget to take a camera with you underwater as the wonderful world under the sea with its fantastic landscapes, coral rose garden and colourful dwellers are worth photographing!
