Spectacular site, both for snorkeling and diving. On the incoming current, the water clarity is exceptional. Sharks are everywhere, literally 100's, all around. We saw black tips, white tips, and grays, others saw lemons. Incredible variety of species of reef fish, very accessible to snorkelers. Lots of Napoleon wrasses, groupers, parrot fish, triggers, and pretty much every other specie found in French Polynesian waters. We dove and snorkeled for about 10 days, never got bored, saw new things every dive. Dives for best sharks were between 80 and 100', while the snorkeling was very shallow, most in only 15-20'.

Wonderful dive in Fakarava lagoon, south pass in the Tuamotus. White tips, black tips and gray sharks everywhere, literally 100's, all around. We did 2 dives and 9 snorkel runs on incoming tides over a 10 day period, and never got tired of it!
