The atoll is a remarkable untouched environment that has been officially designated a UNESCO biosphere. Its reserve is believed to have one of the largest concentrations of grey sharks in the world.

Tetamanu Pass

Here you’ll witness nothing short of a phenomenon, a towering wall of hundreds of sharks that school for this annual gathering. It’s something you need to see to believe, but only if you can muster the courage to experience this unforgettable spectacle.

Garuae Pass

At around 30-40 meters in depth, The Garuar Pass is one of the largest passes in The Islands of Tahiti. Let the incoming current carry you towards the lagoon where along the journey, you will see silhouettes of larger predators off in the distance. Here barracudas, groupers, and rays roam the deep blue waters.
