Take the controls of a Waverunner and zip through the gorgeous, crystal-clear lagoon off Raiatea for an exhilarating ride like no other.
You won't have to waste much time getting to the beach because it's just a short walk of a few hundred yards from the port. Although you will more or less follow the guide, you will be free to cut through the sea at will. You can expect an adventurous, adrenaline-pumping ride from start to finish.
In time, the guide will lead you into a shallow area in the protected lagoon that will be teeming with marine life. While there is no telling what you will observe while snorkeling, the most commonly spotted species include damselfish, mullet, Picasso triggerfish and graceful sea turtles. The visibility in the water is extraordinary, making it even easier to see the variety of sea life. You will then hop back on the Waverunner for one, last thrilling ride back to the beach. Note:
