The South Pacific island of Moorea is one of the most visited island of French Polynesia. Just a 15 minute flight or a 1 hour ferry ride away from the island of Tahiti, the island of Moorea is really love at first sight. Lush tropical slopes and valleys blossom with hibiscus, while palm-covered motu circle the illuminated lagoon like a delicate necklace. Perfect white-sand beaches give way to emerald waters where colored fish animate the coral gardens as they greet the many sharks of Moorea. Diving Moorea means diving relatively shallow and where currents remain constant. But what makes Moorea really special is the shark diving! Moorea is THE place to observe at least 3 species of reef sharks: black-tipped shark, grey shark and the lemon shark.
