Island Tour by Canoe
A unique way to experience Tahaa is by canoe. Exploring the island this way, you'll visit and vanilla plantation and take some time to learn a little about the world-famous black pearls of French Polynesia.
When in Tahaa, do as the locals do: walk. As evidenced by the abundance of well-maintained trails here, walking is a basic form of transportation, and a great way to enjoy the Tahaa's peaks, plateaus and lagoons.
Take a dive into the beautiful blue waters off Tahaa and marvel at the island's undersea wrecks, fish and plant life. The island has a number of interesting dive sites, including numerous lagoon dives. There's no better way to explore Tahaa's undersea world.
Home to a wide variety of reef fish and plant life, the Tahaa area offers excellent snorkeling. Since fish feeding is practiced, the lagoon attracts schools of eels, perches, triggerfish, red snappers, silver jacks, tunas and red runners.
Thanks to the area's relatively low population, the waters around Tahaa are never short of fish. Fishing enthusiasts can take advantage of this situation by chartering a fishing boat for a half- or full-day. Cast your line and catch jackfish, mahi-mahi, marlin and sailfish.
