French Polynesia is conformed by a unique group of islands hidden amidst the high tides of the South Pacific Ocean. It is a dreamers paradise, in which the unbelievably clear turquoise water meets the densely tree populated islands. This is a place that is often singled out for its beauty, its diversity and its vast culture.
Ocean Adventures Polynesia offers the opportunity to explore this amazing place while learning how to navigate within the barrier reef, and appreciating the beauty of the near by coral gardens that are densely populated with beautiful sea creatures, such as fish, sharks and stingrays.
There is an additional treat for those who are certified as PADI divers, as they will also have the opportunity to explore the depths of the sea with a certified instructor. Adventure awaits in French Polynesia, come find it!
