My Favorite Dive Spots in French Polynesia

Tahiti is a goldmine for divers of all skill levels. It has something to offer for everyone and anyone. The dive sites here are some of the best in the world and mostly unspoiled. Tahiti is located in the southern Pacific Ocean, and is home to thousands of varieties of marine life and beautiful Coral Reefs.

These are the spots I liked the best:


Moorea is located within the heart of French Polynesia, and is a fantastic place to visit if you are daring and love to try new things. What is the main attraction here you ask? Hand-fed Sharks and Stingrays. Most people would think to never try to feed a Shark, with your own hands! are you mad?

If you are daring, you will find yourself swimming with, and feeding Blacktip Sharks. Fortunately reef Sharks are generally harmless, so you should not be in any danger. Just be sure to bring dive camera to document feeding the sharks, otherwise no one will believe you!

Bora Bora

Bora Bora is the jewel of Tahiti, and the most well-known location in Tahiti. Although it is mainly known for its beauty above, the sights under the water are still no short of stunning. When you dive here, you will find that paradise  is just 40 feet down.

Bora Bora’s lagoon is a fan favourite, simply because of beautiful coral ledges and cliffs that the lagoon offers. Just grab your snorkel gear and you can easily see some of the best spots from the beach. Bora Bora’s beauty doesn’t stop at the lagoon, as there are countless types of marine life constantly on display. If you want to experience heaven on earth, look no further than Bora Bora.


Rangiroa is another stunning area in Tahiti. Rangiroa is special because it has the second largest Atoll in the world, which is the ring of coral around a lagoon. It is said that when you are at one end of the Atoll, you can’t see the end of the other side. That’s massive! This Atoll has led to Rangiroa being rich in marine life, making this location a must visit when you are in Tahiti. Here the water is warm year round so no wetsuit is necessary.


Manihi is located 330 miles away from Tahiti. This location is home to some of the best diving spots in the world. Manihi also has one of the most amazing Atolls in the world, and is regarded as one the most scenic Atolls. A specific treasure that is found in Manihi is a black Pearl, which is a great reason to visit this beautiful area. Who knows, you may end up finding a pearl for yourself. Of course, Manihi has no shortage of beautiful marine life and coral, and is a beautiful, tranquil area that is appealing if you like remote areas.
