A favorite of all divers, the lagoon of Raiatea & Taha’a is rich with a variety of landscapes of sea mounts, caverns and drop-offs.  Snorkelers and divers here can observe eels, gray sharks, napoleon wrasses, and enchanting caves and coral gardens.

The lagoon waters are also host to the final resting place of the Norby shipwreck, a three-masted ship that sank in 1900.
