Rangiroa is a genuine natural aquarium, a mecca for scuba divers around the globe, and said by some to be the richest and most beautiful lagoon in the world. 

In Rangiroa, to “shoot the pass” is to experience what many have called “the world’s greatest adrenaline rush!"

Divers, snorkelers, and even those aboard a glass-bottomed boat are carried in a rush of water between the ocean and lagoon surrounded by seemingly millions of fish. Outside the reefs, a breathtaking array of large species await divers along the brightly colored walls of the oceanic drop-offs, including squadrons of eagle rays and schools of sharks, tuna, jacks, and barracuda.

Rangiroa's lagoon, the second largest in the world, is highly prized by divers from around the world because of the pass dives, visibility, and density of marine life, particularly sharks.
