Scuba diving in Tikehau
TIKEHAU is one of Polynesia's most renowned scuba diving destinations, and has nothing to envy the Tuamotu diving destinations of Rangiroa and Fakarava.
Its warm, crystal-clear waters conceal a rich and thriving marine ecosystem. Diving conditions at Tikehau are exceptional, with impressive visibility, pleasant temperatures and moderate currents, making this a true paradise for divers of all levels.
Tikehau's dive sites offer incredible diversity. The famous Tuheiava pass, also known as the shark pass, is a must for thrill-seeking divers. This world-famous pass is the meeting point for grey sharks, blacktip sharks, lemon sharks, hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks and others, offering divers the chance to swim safely alongside these majestic predators.
The multicolored coral gardens that line the pass are an enchanting sight. Hard and soft corals form a vibrant ecosystem, attracting a multitude of shimmering tropical fish. Majestic manta rays also make their way through Tikehau's waters, adding a touch of grace to this underwater experience.
Tikehau is also home to a variety of other fascinating creatures, such as sea turtles, octopuses, Napoleon fish, moray eels and schools of jacks, which amaze divers on every dive.
Scuba diving is not included in our package, so motu guests can contact a service provider located in the village and pay directly to the diving service provider. With our new, faster and more comfortable boat, it will be possible, in agreement with the dive center, to take divers directly to the pass, to the dive site, thus saving on travel time and comfort.
In conclusion, scuba diving in Tikehau is an enchanting experience that will remain etched in the memories of every diver lucky enough to have experienced it. The crystal-clear waters, dazzling biodiversity and unspoilt beauty of the seabed make Tikehau a first-class diving destination. For anyone looking to reconnect with nature and explore an unspoilt underwater world, Tikehau is the ideal meeting place.
